Hilary Doucette started work at CVTRS in 2014 as a part time office assistant, but her love of all things scheduling and organizing quickly became apparent, and she transitioned into the volunteer coordinator, program coordinator, grant writer and office manager! Phew! Hilary is owned by one of the therapy horses, Friday, and loves her job both in the office and helping out wherever she is needed!

Tegwyn Harper grew up in the UK, riding horses for clients from a young age which transitioned into coaching others at her property with her horses. In 2008, Teg achieved her CTRSI certification and helped bring CVTRS to accreditation and into the CanTRA family. In 2014 became a CanTRA Coach.  “It is the grassroots teaching that matters. Biomechanics make you aware of the body and how it can affect the horse, which is essential to therapeutic riding”.

Ashleigh Masini started volunteering with CVTRS as a teenager and hasn’t looked back since. She became CanTRA certified in 2013 and is currently an Intermediate Instructor. In 2019 she also took on the role of being the barn manager and is thoroughly enjoying wearing both hats! 

Heather Lantz has always enjoyed working with people of all ages and spent much of her life riding horses. In 2019 Heather added “exercise riding” to her experiences. She loved building relationships with the horses she rode and helping them adjust to therapy work by being their “person.” In 2021 Heather joined the staff of CVTRS as an exercise rider.
