How it began
Esmee Ingham grew up in West Vancouver. Her love of horses started at a young age and was further encouraged on her aunt’s farm in Pemberton.
As a child, Ingham rode many different ponies and horses at her aunt’s and attended various Summer Camps at Aspengrove Equestrian Academy. When she was 12 she came into contact with the sport of dressage at Dreamcatcher Meadows.
As the families knew each other, Ingham was given the tremendous opportunity to train with Wendy Christoff in Ladner. Her schoolmaster, Canadian Sport Horse bred Caboose, introduced her to the world of warmblood horses. After a while, Ingham’s family bought the horse Norseman, (nickname Normy), for her, a Swedish warmblood. Together with Normy she rode to international level, representing Canada several times at Junior, Young Riders and Small Tour level.
