Calling All Cars - Calling All Cars, aka Carson is now retired on the farm at Sherwood Park. He was Tricia's partner in International competition for 6 years. He has been the horse of a lifetime. Bold and careful, he was a phenomenal jumper, a wonderful dressage horse and rarely ever had a rail down in stadium

My Beau - Ridden and trained by Tricia to the Advanced and CCI** level, My Beau is currently being ridden by Amy Tryon...who partnered him to many prestigious wins and placings including a 7th at the renowned Badminton International Horse Trials and was named to the Athens Olympic Team for the U.S. He was purchased from the Northlands track in Edmonton as a 4 year old and was a favorite mount until he was sold to the U.S.
