CLINICIAN: LINDA MILLER

Linda lives in Edmonton with her husband, a cat and two dogs. She has been riding since the age of five, owning a horse or pony nearly continuously for over 45 years. Over the years, she has lived in several countries and has competed with varying degrees of success in equitation, hunter trials, dressage, eventing, and general showing classes.

Stewarding was a way Linda could participate in the equine world without suffering severe stage fright, self inflicted bodily harm, or embarrassing family and friends. Her stewarding involvement started in BC with her apprenticeship being completed in Alberta. Today Linda holds an Equestrian Canada card as a Senior National Steward and the Dressage Canada designation of Senior Dressage Steward. In 2006, she obtained her FEI Dressage status. She is also a carded Steward of the Arabian Horse Association and Para - Dressage. Linda works at a variety of shows but tries to focus on dressage competitions - both open and breed.

She enjoys working with the athletes, both human and equine and always hopes for the perfect show day.  Outside of horses Linda shows dogs in obedience and agility, tries to play golf, and seems to be continuously upgrading her skills as an IT systems administrator.
