MEET THE TEAM

 

MEET THE PEOPLE

TAMI BRAND
OCCUPATIONAL THERAPIST, EQUINE ASSISTED LEARNING FACILITATOR, OWNER

Tami’s passions are people and animals.

Tami grew up in North Vancouver, BC where she got the “horse bug” when her mom took her at the age of 8 to see if she would be interested in horses… she loved them and has been immersed in their world ever since! She began training and showing horses to a National level, winning awards along the way. When she graduated from University, she moved to Alberta and bought her own farm, where she now raises Paints and Arabians, training and riding them daily and sharing her love of horses with her son and daughter.

 

While going to the University of BC to become an Occupational Therapist (OT), Tami worked as a Therapeutic Riding Instructor for multiple programs. She has over 16 years of Pediatric Occupational Therapy experience in a variety of settings. Currently, she works as an OT with the Pre-K and Kindergarten aged children with special needs in a number of school divisions in Alberta.

 

Tami has decided that she needs to spend more time on her farm sharing her passion for helping people and her love of horses. In 2017, Tami became a Certified Equine Assisted Learning Facilitator and now is the proud owner and operator of Silver Horseshoes Development. She is excited to take this next step in her journey as she shares with others the dramatic positive changes that horses can make in people’s lives.

 

MEET THE TEACHERS

CASEY
EQUINE ASSISTED LEARNING TEACHER

The first love of my life, Casey was born to my first Arabian mare in 1995. He has been my GQ boy ever since and has really taught me everything! He is a 23-year-old purebred Arabian gelding. Casey had a lengthy show career in hunter pleasure, western pleasure, halter, show hack and dressage winning numerous championships! He retired from showing and learned to live as a “horse” out in the field which he took to fabulously. Casey continues to have a great attitude, and no one would ever think he is as old as he is when he gallops around the field kicking up his heels. Casey will be a wonderful teacher as he has many experiences to draw from when working with his students.

DUCHESS
EQUINE ASSISTED LEARNING TEACHER

Duchess is a 14-year-old quarter horse mare. Prior to coming to our farm, she was ridden and shown in multiple divisions. Duchess likes to know who her person is and will rely on them for leadership and respect. She is an independent soul who makes her own decisions and often chooses to be on her own with the herd in the distance. Duchess definitely stands back and assesses the situation, but once she trusts and is connected responds in a quiet, friendly manner.

MAGIC
EQUINE ASSISTED LEARNING TEACHER

Magic is a 14-year-old Paint mare. She came to us as a two-year-old from the auction.  She was a gangly filly with a big head a no hind quarters. As she matured we realized what a beautiful mare she was, and she has been producing stunning babies for many years. Magic got her name from her ability to get to the other side of the fence with no evidence of how or where she did it. She is the head mare with other horses and is a great leader with a kind gentle nature.

REMI
EQUINE ASSISTED LEARNING TEACHER

Remi is the newest teacher and comes with a ton of experience. She is a 20-year-old smaller quarter horse cross. Remi is a 'been there, done that' horse and most recently was owned by a young girl who rode her in pony club. Her main training is English and jumping, but she really will do anything. Remi is as steady as they come and anyone with the “nervous nellies” will become calm with her as their teacher.

BANDIT
EQUINE ASSISTED LEARNING TEACHER

Bandit is the Shetland Pony of the herd, who may be little, but, is a big teacher. He is a 6 year old black and white gelding. Bandit came to us from a wonderful family, where he was a companion horse for a very large 17.0 hand horse and a buddy for a little girl. Bandit likes to go for walks around the farm and explore anything he comes across. Because he is so small, he fits just about anywhere. Bandit is highly responsive to his leader’s actions and will be a great teacher for those both big and small.
