After 4 years of western riding instruction, Jade apprenticed under the coach and assisted in lessons, public trail rides, horse training, breeding, feeding regimes, scheduled & emergency veterinary appointments, herd management protocols, quarantine protocols, vaccine, deworming & farrier scheduling and appointments and much more! At the age of 23, she began to pursue professional qualifications & certifications through Equestrian Canada & Ontario Equestrian and has since acquired National Coaching Certification Program certificate & Western Rider Instructor of Beginners. Continuing her education she acquired her exercise license, pony license and groom license with the Ontario Racing Commission which she maintained for two years, after which she apprenticed under an AQHA trainer for another 2 years acquiring a specialized skills set and substantial experiences to add to her repertoire.

Completing her Equine, Canine & Feline First Aid Instruction Certification, allowed her to promote and teach the maintenance of health and well-being of horses, dogs and cats. Passionate about teaching this fit in well with her other qualifications. In addition she completed her Facility Management Certificate from the University of Guelph – Equine.

Jade also has a Diploma as a Developmental Services Worker, working in the community as an Educational Assistant and Support Worker for 7 years. This degree provided many skill sets beneficial to working with the public, families, children, and different learning styles & cognitive & physical capacities.

About Nicole

Nicole Neddow thrives on teaching others and giving back to a sport she is dedicated to, especially in Eastern Ontario. She currently enjoys teaching Beginners at Hot 2 Trot Stables but can always pull some tricks out to assist the more advanced riders! She has many years of experience with horses , but took a real knack for this sport about 9 years ago under the wing of Megan Desjardins, owner and trainer at Hot 2 Trot Stables, who provided Nicole with lessons and coaching for years while she competed. In those years she learnt so much about the sport and feels blessed at the opportunity to give back in some way! Nicole then hung her boots up to allow her daughter to fulfill her dreams competitively. She jumped on the Executive with Eastern Ontario Western Games Association and from there witnesses so many great things happen in the arena’s! “We are so fortunate to have so many great clubs in Ontario to keep the sport alive and fun for all!!!”
