Sheila White

Membership Director 
With over 30 yrs experience in the horse industry in various capacities, including EC English Competition Coach, Pony Club, Judge, Examiner, and Director, I am looking forward to another educational, competitive & fun year with our existing and new members.

Kelsey Hamer

I jump in wherever I can to help, but I primarily organize the summer & fall derbies. 

Arlene Hamer

Cross-Country Director

I have been an avid rider since I was a small child. Growing up in northwest BC I have always been adventurous on my horses I enjoyed galloping across open fields, cantering through the bush, crossing water and climbing hills. When Kelsey introduced me to cross country jumping I could not believe how much fun it was. The women of SPHC have been so supportive and a great group of women to be with. It inspired me to step up and volunteer. Thank you for the best summers.

Abby Stilwell

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. 780-933-9975 Abbystilwell28@gmail.com
