Under the guidance of Brent and Laura Balisky in Langley, B.C., Tiffany Foster had the distinction of winning both the Running Fox CET Medal and the Jump Canada Medal at the 2001 Royal Horse Show in Toronto. In 2006, Foster began working for Olympic gold medalist Eric Lamaze and is now head trainer at his Torrey Pines Stables. She exploded onto the international show jumping scene in 2011 and made her Canadian Equestrian Team debut aboard Southvwind VDL in the $350,000 BMO Nations’ Cup at the Spruce Meadows “Masters” tournament, helping Canada earn a second place finish. Foster has now represented Canada in 21 Nations’ Cup competitions worldwide including Buenos Aires, Argentina; Barcelona, Spain; and Aachen, Germany, as well as at the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Normandy, France. In 2014, riding her newest mount Tripple X III, she helped Canada bring home the win in the $300,000 BMO Nations’ Cup at the CSIO5* Spruce Meadows “Masters” tournament.
Getting into the Sport: Ever since her parents bought her a rocking horse for her second Christmas, Foster’s life has included horses… Began taking riding lessons at age 8… Odds and Ends: Appeared in a television advertisement for a children’s toy when she was a young girl… Broke her back in 2008 while riding a young horse, and doctors feared she would never walk again, let alone ride…
