2004 Competing in the 4-Year Old Jumper Development 

Series with Vistosa

Christina owns and operates Keurwood Equestrian Christina has been riding, training and breeding horses since 1992, and has a gift for working with sensitive and hot horses that have been deemed unsuitable for other riders.  Christina competed with many such horses on both the Central Western Trillium Hunter Circuit, and the National A Circuit.  Her accomplishments include 5th overall out of nearly 50 competitors in the 1994 Trillium Children's Hunter division (10 show series), several wins at the National level in the lower jumping classes as well as placings in the 4-Year Old Jumper Development Series with her mare, Vistosa, Champion and Reserve Champion in the Hunter ring with Jamaica, and clear round placings in 1.20m and 1.30m with Travola.

Christina continues to train and bring along many young and made horses including her Grand Prix jumper, Travola (2000), as well as her up-and-coming hunter prospect, Cirque du Soleil (2009).  She prides herself on her soft and patient riding style and ensures that her horses have mastered basic dressage and lateral movements prior to starting any jumping. Dressage and reining techniques are regularly incorporated into Christina's everyday riding to develop core strength, flexibility, engagement and suppleness for supremely versatile athletes.

2016 Flatting with Cirque du Soleil (2009) - Cirque du Soleil demonstrates her natural frame and rounded back. Christina has never used draw reins, lunging systems or any other devices to assist with "Zaia's" self-carriage. Zaia is ridden in loose-ring a Sprenger KK.

   

Christina imported several horses from Europe, mainly Sweden, Germany and the Netherlands, and has been breeding Warmbloods since the late 1990's. 

   

Christina is an entrepreneur who embraces a collaborative and open-minded approach when it comes to horse training, management and care, while striving to increase her knowledge and skills. Respectful of all disciplines, Christina employs and accommodates a variety of equestrian training and management philosophies and practices.  Christina has always appreciated the distinctiveness and quirks of each equine individual, has developed several unique and highly effective horse handling skills, and believes each and every horse at Keurwood is special and should be treated as such.

   

2016 Baby loving from Fait Accompli

   

Christina holds an honours degree in Biomedical Sciences and focused on animal genetics, immunology, nutrition and animal physiology.  Christina has also furthered her academic training in equine nutrition, stallion/mare management and breeding management with Dr. Walter

Threlfall at Ohio State University, and has provided strategic consulting to Gencor's (now EastGen) equine breeding department. 

   

Christina spent 10 years in the pharmaceutical industry in senior management positions prior to the inception of Keurwood Equestrian. In 2016, Christina embarked on a new venture and founded Horse Laser, a non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical approach to providing therapy to injured horses and maintaining peak performance.
