Board of Directors

Sheila White

Membership Director 
Sheila has had more than 30 years experience in the horse industry as an EC Competition Coach, Judge , Pony Club Examiner and Director.

Sheila was self taught from a young age before gaining formal education through "Misty Pines Pony Club" in Lac La Hache, B.C. Through Pony Club, Sheila's passion for horses and training flourished. She gained her "B" level testing before aging out of Pony Club. With one door closing, another opened at the Kelowna College's Equine Studies Program. This was the next adventure that lead Sheila to obtain her Equine Canada Competition Coach Certification. Since then, Sheila has enjoyed coaching and training many riders and horses over the years. 
Sheila is looking forward to another educational, competitive & fun year with our existing and new members.

Chloe Herczeg

 Derby  & Communications
 Director

As an equestrian with 20 years of experience, I am excited and proud to take on this role and be more involved with SPHC. I grew up on the south shore of Montréal where I owned a couple OTTBs, trained and competed in hunters, jumpers, and eventing. 

In 2013, I was a part of the team to coordinate and execute Bromont International CCI*** Three-Day event. In 2017, I was a working student for Artisan Farms and Canadian Olympian medalist Tiffany Foster and traveled through out USA and Europe. In 2020, I was a riding instructor at Wynbrook Riding School in Ottawa, and finally in 2021 I purchased my new jumper/eventer project; a 10year OTTB (pictured).  I look forward to an eventful 2023 and meeting you all at the XC clinics and derbys!

Arlene Hamer

XC & Social Director


Arlene has been an avid rider since she was a small child. Growing up in Northwest BC,  she found that she was always adventurous on horseback and enjoyed galloping across open fields, cantering through the bush, crossing water and climbing hills. When her daughter, Kelsey, introduced her to cross country jumping she could not believe how much fun it was.


Arlene is thankful to the Directors and Members of SPHC because they have been so supportive and a great group of people to be around. It is the SPHC community who inspired her to step up and volunteer on the board.

Abby Stilwell

Stadium  Director
Abby was riding a horse before she could walk. A few highlights from her youth include representing the zone 8 equestrian team at the Alberta Summer Games on two separate occasions and showing in the 1.10m at Spruce Meadows. Over the years Abby brought along her own horses and was fortunate to have some wonderful equine companions. At the age of 18, university, a career in education, marriage and having children took precedence and Abby stepped away from riding for 15 years. After that long hiatus, Abby purchased a young horse in the spring of 2019 and has found her heart again – back in the saddle. South Peace Horse Club provided many opportunities for Abby when she was younger, and so giving back to the club by being a director is her small way to give back to the equestrian community.

Caitlin Lamb

Horse Show Director
Katie's equestrian career began when she was still in diapers. She grew up watching her mother's passion and love for the sport (and clearly its genetic). Katie was entered into her first horse show at the age of three on her mother's 16.2hh TB competition horse. At the age of four she got her first pony, a 14.1hh pinto named Panda. With Panda, Katie was able to do anything she put her mind to. She rode Western, English and even went over her first jumps. 
After years of Pony Club, riding, and competing, Katie's journey has continued to flourish. While being a stay at home mom, Katie continues to work towards obtaining her coaching certification as well as her judging certification.

Tiara Chambers-Mader

Horse Trials Director
Tiara has been apart of the horse club since 2003 and has stepped up into many different roles over the years. She has stayed so involved so that she can give back to the equine community and help everyone feel that their goals and dreams are achievable. 
She continues to help by being a leader and mentor and supports the conversation that we are never done learning. No matter what stage we are each at, we can all succeed together.
She is proud to call the Peace Country Area her home, and is honored to help  bring knowledge of equestrian sport here. Helping the next generation succeed is very important to her. As a Coach, Facility Owner, Coach Developer and Athlete, she feels it's important to be available and keep the sport alive.
