Judi Gorsline

Judi started competing as a very young girl and started “catch riding” horses at horse shows in her teens. Judi won a number of Spruce Meadows Scholarships and received instruction from Spruce Meadows riding master Albert Kley. She continued riding for other trainers, including Claudia Cojacar at shows throughout Western Canada, having great success in the hunter ring and progressing to the open jumper level. Long time Canadian Team member, Gail Ross, gave her two open horses, including the renowned “Pinnacle”, which she successfully competed at the open jumper level. She began taking on training of young horses on her own and also assisted Carol with teaching young riders. Together they developed many successful competitors over the years. Judi has continued to compete with her own horses, and as a professional rider for others at all levels. Some of her notable achievements include:

        Shield of Excellence for Outstanding Junior Jumper at Spruce Meadows 
        Spruce Meadows Chrysler Derby Champion
        2 time Chrysler Leading Canadian Rider Award
        Selected as top junior to compete for Canada in Equador
        Winner of numerous Spruce Meadows scholarships
        East/West Challenge team member at Toronto Winter Fair
        Strathcona County Top Female Athlete Celebration Award
