Raylene is passionate about finding the joy in the journey! With a lifelong love of horses, Raylene has been showing Saddlebreds since the age of 13. She developed a love for Saddle Seat Equitation and earned wins as a junior rider but excelled in adult Saddle Seat equitation and Saddlebred performance classes. Proving that you are never too old to live out a dream, Raylene first became involved with ISSEA's World Cup events in 2004, as a member of Canada's silver medal 3-Gaited team. World Cups in 2006 and 2008 also provided life long memories as she shared those events with wonderful international friends and team mates including daughter Samantha. Raylene has enjoyed coaching her own students, as well as having the privilege to coach and support many of Canada's Invitational and World Cup team members, since 2009.
Raylene is honored to be named coach for Saddle Seat Canada's 2018 World Cup team and to share the experience with the Saddle Seat Canada Board of Directors, Team Canada members, supporters, and team manager/sister Lynne. Raylene and husband Rob live on the outskirts of Sylvan Lake in Central Alberta and feel blessed to have so many family members, including their beautiful granddaughters, close by!
Lynne Redmond has been a lifelong Saddlebred enthusiast as well as a coach and trainer for almost 20 years. After debuting in the show ring in the 5 Gaited Open division at just 10 years of age, that kind of adrenaline rush set the stage for an ongoing pursuit of the same and a passion for saddle seat competition. With a focus in her program for developing equitation in all ages, a love for 5 gaited and all things Saddlebred, the theme of Camelot Equestrian is "... place of dreams". Her first involvement with Word Cup was in 2008 when her first student competed in South Africa and she was able to watch her dream come true of being there. That was to be the first of several WC events in SA and in the US for Lynne and her students, where incredible friends and memories have been made in both countries. Lynne herself still enjoys showing in Canada and the US. Lynne is currently the President of ASHA of
Saddle Seat Canada 2019/2020 Team Coach
Saddle Seat Canada 2019/2020 Team Manager
Canada is also on the boards for the ASHA of Alberta and Saddle Seat Canada and is honoured to be the manager for Team Canada. Lynne is thrilled to be able to do this along with her sister and friend, Raylene McWade (coach) and is looking forward to a fun-filled week!
