Meet Our Coaches

Tammie Blewett

Tammie is originally from Devon, England and is a CHA level 4 and a BHS level 3 coach. She started riding at the age of 13 on a Connemara pony named Leys Laurus. Tammie worked at several stables in England, and eventually worked her way up to managing the yard at "The Manor" where she trained polo ponies, competition horses and oversaw the breeding program. In 1997 she moved to Canada to be with her husband David, and started working with Unicorn Stables as the barn/facility manager and coach. Since 2011 she has been living her childhood dream as the proud owner of this ever improving, first class facility. Tammie competes her horses in both Canada and the US,and enjoys coaching at events as well. Unicorn Stables is home to a few of Tammie's past competitive mounts, and they now help to teach the next generation of riders.

Emma Wallin

Emma has been riding at Unicorn Stables since she was 5 years old, and is now a certified instructor. She has passed her Pony Club level C2 this and is currently working towards her B level. Emma has competed on several different horses since she was 10. She now has her own horse, Strider, and also enjoys riding some of the less experienced horses at Unicorn.  Emma appreciates the many friendships she has made at the barn over the years, and loves coaching riders of all ages.


Cassidy Kerfoot

Cassidy began riding when she was 5 years old at a Hunter/jumper barn before moving to Unicorn and discovering her love for Eventing. Here she leased and competed different horses over the years, including her first horse Sugar, who she leased when Sugar was a school horse before purchasing her. Together they competed successfully at training level in both Canada and the USA. While moving up to Preliminary level, Sugar sustained an injury, and is now retired happily in a field, but she will remain with Cass for the rest of her life! At the end of 2018, she got a new horse named Beckham, who she hopes will take her to the upper levels of Eventing in the future. Cassidy was a part of Pony Club for many years where she obtained her B level. She also took courses in Equine Studies with the University of Guelph in equine management and behaviour. Cass is excited to continue her journey with horses and to be on the Unicorn team to help teach upcoming riders!
