Jamie Gardy, Owner, Head Trainer & Coach at Gardy Training Centre.
Jamie has over 11 years of experience in the industry, starting out her riding and showing career from a very young age! Formerly the Assistant Trainer and Coach at Kelly Simpson Training Centre, Jamie started her youth show career under Kelly’s guidance, winning multiple year-end awards in both Area 3 and Ontario, and placing 7th at the All American Quarter Horse Congress in Novice Youth Hunt Seat Equitation.
After finishing her youth show career, Jamie attended Georgian College and became a Veterinary Technician all the while apprenticing under Kelly. Jamie worked alongside Kelly as her assistant for several years until Kelly announced her retirement from Kelly Simpson Training Centre in 2017. Jamie along with her husband Chris took this as an opportunity to open their very own training center. This past year has been the greatest experience for Jamie, she was an assistant promoted to Head Trainer and Coach at Kelly Simpson Training Centre, while in the background was getting ready to build and open her own facility.
In 2017, the first year stepping out on her own as Head Trainer and Coach, Jamie won Champion and Reserve Champion Level 1 Green Trail on two of her client's horses, along with Champion Green As Grass Trail for Area 3. Over the year, all of her clients had an incredibly successful show season, achieving their goals and earning multiple year-end awards. It is incredible to see Jamie following in her mentor's footsteps as Kelly has been the past leader of winning multiple Green Horse Trail awards in the Area 3 circuit.
