Touch of Class

Nicole’s love of horses started from a young age, and after receiving riding lessons for her eleventh birthday, they became a permanent part of her life.


Upon purchasing her first horse at fourteen, Nicole began the journey through the competitive side of the horse world. Initially starting her career in the jumpers, her competition experience ranges from Trillium to the Ontario A Circuit.


In order to progress in the industry and gain as much knowledge as possible , Nicole sought out opportunities to work under established professionals whenever possible. This drive has allowed her to work with two Olympic level riders, both in Canada as well as on circuits in Florida. It is through these experiences that Nicole was first formally introduced to dressage.


Currently Nicole competes at Gold-rated dressage shows in Ontario under Jill Steadman, with her personal horse, a full Clydesdale named Willow.


Touch of Class has been established with a firm belief in the importance of “schooling the flat”. Whether a rider is simply looking to ride in a weekly lesson, or progress to the highest level of competition, each horse and rider team has a flat work program developed to fit their individual needs.


Nicole’s array of knowledge in multiple disciplines has allowed her to develop several competitive teams through Touch of Class. Teams range from schooling level, to the Ontario A Circuit, in both jumpers as well as dressage.
