Tommie Turvey

An accomplished performer in many disciplines, Tommie works in all aspects of the entertainment and equine industry. You’ve probably seen him in feature films, television commercials, as a featured performer at dinner theaters, a specialty feature act at a touring circus, a main character in a wild-west show, to performing his “extreme” shows at horse expos, equestrian events, rodeos, fairs, and numerous international horse shows around the world. His trust building techniques are what has enabled him to roman ride over a wall of fire, leap through rings of flames and in an amazing feat of courage and trust performs a death-defying stunt by roman riding his horse while he is engulfed in flames.

The Canadian Cowgirls 

Flags flying proudly in the wind, and the heavy sound of thundering hooves… the proud and patriotic Canadian Cowgirls burst into the arena with a presence that brings the entire audience to their feet!

The Cowgirls are acclaimed for their musical performances, which dazzle audiences across North America with their precision riding, stunning costumes, and dangerous and daring maneuvers. They are an elite rodeo-style drill team tied together by a common bond – pride in being Canadian.

The Silver Stars

The Silver Stars Drill team is Windsor’s competitive equestrian drill riding team and was established in 2004. An equestrian drill team is a group of horses and riders that perform choreographed maneuvers to music. The team is comprised of 12 riders ranging in age from 13 to 24. All of the girls have been riding for many years at Lazee G Ranch riding school in Windsor under the instruction of Brenda Gagnon, Hanna Gagnon-Colenutt and Diana Dobson. The Silver Star’s team goal is to provide quality entertainment, show sportsmanship, horsemanship, team work and dedication and positively represent Windsor and Essex County at all events.

The High Flying Haflingers

The High Flying Haflingers are a drill team of jumping haflingers and girls that range in age from 15 to 36! They love to demonstrate the versatility, willingness, and athleticism of their haflinger horses.
