Tatiana has been a dedicated equestrian professional since childhood, with over 20 years of experience and a highly successful track record in international show jumping competitions, trading, coaching, consulting, and business management.
Tatiana is a passionate horsewoman and seasoned competitor with a strong desire to bring out the best in horses and riders. Since the age of 8, she has won numerous national and international competitions in Europe and North America on thousands of different horses. She has extensive experience managing teams of horses that achieved great success in competition while delivering investor returns. She has fostered an impressive professional network involving some of the most prestigious athletes and industry professionals worldwide.
Tatiana began her riding career at a local riding school in Edmonton, Alberta when she was 7 years old. At 8 years old she began her career as a working student with Heather Archer and Cam Smith, who together guided Tatiana to a two year winning streak in the AHJA pony hunter and jumper divisions.
At age 10, Tatiana relocated to Toronto, Ontario where she continued as a working student for Canada’s premier hunter trainer Wayne McLellan. Under Wayne’s guidance, Tatiana became one of Canada’s leading junior riders by campaigning WGM Stables investment horses, catch riding other client-owned horses, and one of her own.
At 15 years old, she was recruited to the US by respected trainers Bobby Braswell and Christina Schlusemeyer as a working student, where she lived with Braswell and his family at Quiet Hill Farm in Ocala, FL for over two years. Tatiana advanced her career in the US working full-time grooming, training, and campaigning their sales horses in the most prestigious American hunter and equitation competitions.
In Tatiana’s last junior year, Bobby and Christina gifted her the opportunity to work with renowned international trainer Missy Clark. Through Missy’s tutelage and generosity, Tatiana gained access to horses capable of competing in the highest levels of junior competition, where she achieved consistently outstanding results in all hunter, jumper and equitation divisions. Amongst the best junior riders in North America, she ended her junior career in the top ten USEF National Rankings.
At 18 years old, Tatiana transitioned into her professional career at Stephex Stables in Belgium - one of the world’s leading sport and trading stables - where she gained extensive experience both in international competition, and in the business of horse trading.
After 14 months at Stephex, Tatiana then focused on growing her own business and spent the next eight years successfully competing, trading, and coaching between Canada, the US and Europe. During this time she worked with and learned from some of the top equestrians in the world including Jos Lansink, Jan Tops, Ian Millar, and Nick Skelton, and made a name for herself as highly competitive international athlete.

From 2016 - 2021, Tatiana put her equestrian career on hold and settled in Toronto to pursue a formal education. During this time she completed a bachelor's degree in Psychology and Neuroscience at Ryerson University, became a certified yoga practitioner, and explored her passion for music.
Tatiana’s education and life experience offer a unique perspective and holistic approach as an equestrian professional. She currently operates ENLIVEN Equestrian between Toronto, ON and Wellington, FL - focusing on sport horse development in training and competition, sales, and helping others achieve their equestrian goals.
