About Tricia Willsher

Horses have been my life's passion for as long as I can remember and I'm pretty sure that the second word out of my mouth was “horsie!” I am not sure where this love for horses came from; I didn't grow up on a farm but in the quiet hamlet of Sherwood Park and my family had no interest in horses. As I grew older my interest in these wonderful, magestic animals increased. My mom said it was just a phase that I would grow out of , but my dad, seeing how I was with these animals had his doubts.

In the last fifteen years I have had the opportunity to learn and work with many different trainers and barn owners, which has helped me learn what to do and not to do. Through this experience I have come to develop my own horse sense, my own way of working with horses and building that natural language of communication. I have been able to incorporate teachings from my latest mentor, Chris Irwin, on natural energy and how to draw, push and block. Using all this, I have had wonderful success with many difficult horses on the ground, in the saddle or even just trimming their hooves.

I am always working to better myself in my trade and with my communication with these animals and you the rider. I am always willing to pass on my experience to help others improve their skills and overall relationship between the rider and horse. I offer several other services which are listed on my website. I would love to hear feedback on what you would like to hear or see more from me.
