Head Trainer/Clinician -  Matthew Doyle 

Discovering the Horse is proud to be the home ranch for Matthew.  


DTH founder and part owner, Matthew has dedicated himself to relational horsemanship.  Mentoring under Josh Nichol since he was 16, Matthew's unique and whole approach to the horse creates a balanced, trusting and willing equine partner.

It is Matthew's focus on self discovery and the discovery of the horse that inspired Discovering the Horse.  As his knowledge expands, he brings home and shares so Discovering the Horse can become at it can be.

Trainer - Eva Peck

DTH is over the moon to welcome our second trainer Eva Peck


Eva comes to us with 15 years of horse back riding experience.   She began riding English and transitioned to Western riding about 10 years ago. Eva worked at a barrel racing barn in Ontario during University where she studied Equine Science from the University of Guelph and Psychology from Queens University. She spent her summers working for the YMCA, teaching riding to youth in the back country of the beautiful Ya Ha Tinda. She transitioned to full time work at Camp Chief Hector YMCA when she returned from Ontario and helped to build their youth riding programs.


Eva and her lovely 32 year old horse Lady moved to Discovering the Horse and began volunteering in the lesson program here! She has now transitioned into working with us to build the lesson programs and is offering private and semi private lessons. Eva’s coaching style consists of intentional horsemanship, focusing on making both horse and rider feel safe and secure in order to help them work confidently together. She learns and studies the methods provided by Buck Brannaman. With a different foundation and different experiences her similar coaching style will give DTH clients a wider perspective on horsemanship.  We have already heard from students that they love her calm nature, her friendly approach and her unique style.  We know our clients will be in the best hands. 

Eva will be leading the intermediate portions of our Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday classes and will be offering private sessions on Saturdays.
