HealthEquine Therapies Ambassador Riders
HealthEquine Therapies is delighted to offer our Ambassador Sponsorship Program. Meet our Riders!
LINCOLN BOSCH - TEAM ROPING
I'm Lincoln Bosch and this handsome quarter horse with me is Ben. Ben and I have been partners for 7 years in the team roping pen. I've been riding for 35 years and roping for 10 years.
My family and I have had Ben since he was 3 years old and he's as comfortable with me roping in a rodeo as he is with our 11 year old daughter trotting around a club show pen.
Together Ben and I are planning on competing in the Ontario IPRA rodeo circuit and various team roping jackpots in Southern Ontario.
When I'm not riding, I am a certified fitter/welder by trade who's always eager for the work day to end so that I can chase a few cows with Ben.
KRISTI HORBACH - DRESSAGE
My name is Kristi Horbach. I have been riding for many years. Originally, I started off in the Hunter/Jumper ring. After taking a break from horses for a while, I returned to the discipline of Dressage.
I own two horses, Dolly and Flynn, and am a hoarder of 3 ponies, Pumpkin, Chance and Lily. I care for all my horses at home farm in Niagara-on-the-Lake. My current competition mount is Ryversyde's Flynn. Flynn is an 8 year old OTTB whom I purchased as a 3 year old from the Fort Erie racetrack. Flynn has shown local shows and the last couple of years at Palgrave with placings in the top three for his classes. Flynn has proven to be a talented dressage horse and I look forward to seeing how far we can go in the dressage ring.
When I'm not at the farm, I work at our family business, Horbach's Greenhouse also located in Niagara-on-the-Lake. We are primarily a wholesaler, however, in May and June we do offer a retail section open to the public.
Katie Sormaz - Jumpers
My name is Katie Sormaz and I've been riding for almost 20 years, with a focus on the Jumpers for over 10 years.
I'm the proud horse mom to Donovan and Hennessy, who has been benefiting from Lauren's services for over 3 years. Donovan and I have partnered with HealthEquine Therapies for a couple of years, but this last year I made the decision to focus on bringing along my young horse.
Hennessy is a 2015 Clyde X Thoroughbred mare that my trainer and I backed in June 2018. While the last two years have been spent focusing on fundamentals, we are going to be competing at the Angelstone Silver Series in the 0.8m and 0.9m divisions and introducing her to her first Ontario A Circuit show at the end of the summer.
I'm excited to see what this young horse has to offer, and am proud to have Lauren's support in making sure she is always feeling and performing at her best.
Jasmine Darte - Hunters
My name is Jasmine Darte. I have been involved with horses since the age of 4 when I first started taking lessons. After many years of myself, my two sisters and my mom being involved in the equestrian world, my family and I decided to build and open our own facility.
We have been running Benchview Equestrian Centre in Niagara-on-the-Lake since 2000 where I am currently the manager. I have owned, leased and sold several horses throughout the years with my focus being in the Hunters. I have shown on the central west zone of the Trillium circuit, as well as our local circuits and brought along numerous green horses. When not working in the barn or working on the greenies, I enjoy furthering my knowledge with an abundance of books covering many topics within the horse and industry.
This year I have the pleasure to work with and bring along a newer horse to the barn. Scotty is a 4 (turning 5) year old quarter horse. We have been working on the finishing touches of becoming a hunter. This year we plan to enjoy the season showing on the Silver Series circuit. Since still young we will start small and work on building solid confidence and finesse a lovely hunter division jump by jump. I am beyond excited to see what this show season will bring us!
