Sheri has been involved with horses her whole life. From the age of 10 she rode hunters and Jumpers inOntario. Her first glimpse of dressage captured her attention and after one lesson was transformed. "Isaw horses more supple, athletic and happier and I wanted to ride like that".She started to train in Ontario and then after the birth of her son, and her move to Calgary, she becamea student of the sport. She started training in 1989 with Betty Briggs and that was it. Betty became hermentor, advisor and friend and they are to this day. Sheri also started training with Olympic teammember, Tom Dvorak. "Torn is the best. An excellent rider and trainer who never skips the basics and•keeps the horses relaxed". Tom has come to Horizon 4-5 times a year for clinics for the past 27 years.

Sheri started Horizon Equestrian Centre in 1994. This full service training barn specializes in dressage of all levels. Sheri believes that basic dressage is just good riding and anyone can benefit. At a higher level, we specialize in what is needed in a dressage horse and rider, both at home and in the show ring 

Sheri has had many successes, too numerours to mention here, showing both young horses and up all the way to Grand Prix with Kadans, a Dutch warmblood imported from Holland at 17 months of age. Kadans was Grand Prix champion in 2006. She has shown her 11 year old mare, Champagne and Roses since she was 4 years old, winning the FE4 ,5,and 6 year old classes with a top score of 88%. This same pair were Provincial and Western Regional Champions in 2013. Her goal for 2015 was ir level with this wonderful horse. Sheri reached that goal with Reserve Champion for Alberta . In 2016, Sheri won every Prix St. George class she entered except for one, finishing Champion FEI rider at Claresholm horse show as well as overall HI Champion at the Tilted Tiara Show as well as Amberlea meadows Sparkle and Spurs show.
