Ellie Ross is well known in Extreme Cowboy circles. In 2018 she won the Ontario Extreme Cowboy Championships and then went on to compete in the World Championships in Texas with her pony Smurf. Smurf proves once again that good things come in small packages! Ellie is a professional dog trainer and has found that many of the skills that she used to successfully train dogs could be used to help train horses as well. Ellie works on true understanding of what the horse is expected to do. Because her horses understand their cues and are well trained, she can ride complex obstacle courses, or complete entire reining patterns both bridleless and saddleless! Ellie will be helping campers and their horses on obstacle skills. These skills can be used in Le Trec or in everyday riding.
