Wendy – Program Driver

Wendy finds it a pleasure transporting Urban Stable students safely from their school to the stable and back every week. She enjoys chatting with the students about their equine partners and watching the students connect with and learn from their horses. Observing the benefits of Urban Stable grow in the students and seeing the smiles on their faces amazes Wendy.

Wendy has been fortunate to have had many riding horses throughout her life. Her husbands’ family showed heavy horses, so naturally she learned to drive a team of Clydesdales too. Currently, Wendy owns two miniature donkeys and Ms. Piffles, a retired Urban Stable program horse! She loves looking after her animals and wants to share her love of horses with her grandkids.

Over the years Wendy has enjoyed the opportunity to work with youth as a 4-H leader and Sunday School teacher. Between her family’s sheep farm, a catering business, and her five grandkids, she keeps pretty busy. Wendy enjoys painting barn quilts and scrapbooking when time allows. Being at Urban Stable is her favourite day of the week!
