NEW services being offered November 2012

It has always been our main focus and will continue to be. But with less horses on the farm, April has more time

The Blazing Colours Family...
April as a breeder and young horse trainer: has an incredible ability to understand
horses and use their strengths to her benifit. She has years of experience with stallions, broodmares,
young foals as well as starting/backing young horses.
She uses ground work to develop an understanding of body language and respect.
Building confidence, willingness and trust in horses is very important for a successful
future, be it in the show ring or as a pleasure mount. Creating a relationship of mutual
respect and understanding between horse and rider is cruvial in developing a lasting partnership.
Owner, Rider and Manager of BCF
is the owner and founder of Blazing Colours Farm.
A long time equine enthusiast, April started her involvement in horses at the age of 3 and it has been her passion ever since.
She attended equine college for 4 years where she studied and graduated with two diplomas, one in
reproduction and the other equine husbandry. After completing college, April established Blazing Colours
Farm with the vision of breeding coloured Warmbloods to compete in the English disciplines.
She wanted to compete in the hunters and jumpers but could not find a suitable stallion prospect in North America.
So she looked to Europe where she found her first stallion, Mirabeau . Soon after she went to Virginia where she
purchased Arts Aero. Then she incorporated coloured Thoroughbreds with the purchase of Sato. She is passionate
about unique coloured sport horses and educating people about these horses and their abilities.
April, as a horsewoman, now has over 25 years of hands-on experience in the equine industry.
She is a dedicated horsewoman
and takes great pride in the day-to-day care of the horses. She is a hands-on owner who manages everything
from the feed program to turnout to
training to medical needs. She has a keen eye and notices changes in behavior, feed intake and way of going
before they even become an issue. Her attention to detail and care she provides is second to none.
Lindsay has been riding and showing, primarily in the hunter and equitation disciplines, for over twenty years.
She has had many successes and year-end awards at all levels of the hunter circuit, from the Niagara Challenge
(now Cup) Series to Trillium to A Circuit levels. Her most notable partners include Ardmore Up Top, Just Because
and Rodeo Drive. She has also picked up many 'catch rides' at competitions over the years.
Lindsay has great awareness of her body position and how it affects the way a
horse responds to her in and out of the saddle. She is a wonderful rider that instills calmness to the horse and
she has a way with youngsters
who can sometimes be nervous or sensitive. She has amazing balance and strength, and can regularly be seen doing an entire ride
with no stirrups!
A very quiet, soft and supple rider who enjoys a challenge.
Lindsay currently lives in Oakville and is engaged to be married the in the fall of 2011. She works in Toronto
leading the Commercial Management group in the Supply Chain at a major public utility company, and fits riding

feeding, doing stalls and completing night check while in school. School then took her away but Lindsay has continued to
come back to BCF over the years for breed inspections and riding.
