Tracey Edwards started riding at age 19 and soon after, purchased her first horse. She showed hunter/jumpers and competed on the A circuit in the 1970s and 1980s. Her interest in horse racing led her to become a Quarter Horse jockey from 1980 to 1982, when her daughter was born. In 1988 Tracey became a Level 1 coach while teaching at Hoskin Stables in Blackstock. In the 1990s, she was hired to judge a hunter show at the then-new Dreamcrest and started taking lessons with Ian. Although it took Ian two years to convince her to try eventing, once she tried it, she was hooked. Tracey started teaching at Dreamcrest in 1993 and under the mentorship of Ian and Kelly, she achieved Level 2 Coach status in 2001. Tracey has since become an Eventing Stadium Jumper Judge with Equine Canada and is working toward her Three Day Eventing Judge status.
“My 20 years at Dreamcrest have been very rewarding both professionally and personally. I have come to think of everyone there as family!” says Tracey.
