The Doyle Family
Together we run Discovering the Horse, a place where you can come as you are and find the path to your best self. Since we began in 2018 we have been on a journey of discovering our path, our horses and ourselves. With horses and people as are our passion we have been proudly teaching riding in the area for well OVER a decade we are excited to be out on our own, sharing the foundation that helps us stay strong. We believe that there are many approaches to horsemanship and we are proud to present ours. We believe in the power of determination and togetherness. It's because of this that we work as a tight knit team, bringing our best to every encounter.
As a family we live by our motto....
We may not have it all together...
but together we have it all...
Leanne - Art Director
We met the INCREDIBLE Leanne in 2010 and have been working with her on various endeavours ever since. Leanne is a major asset to the DH team in ways that can't be described. Her warm, calm, welcoming nature is unlike any other, she truly lives believing in everything good. A gifted Artisan, when we began to integrate art into our camps, team building and ladies nights she was glad to join the team...officially and become the DH Art Director. Everything she touches turns to magic and every encounter leaves you smiling and feeling like you've known her for a lifetime. When not horsing around you can find Leanne on the parade route with "The Wildies" a local parade group that DH is proud to be a part of, to support and participate in.
Melinda - Communications Director
Our newest member of the team, her profile and picture will be posted soon. Mel is an incredible addition to the DH team and we can't wait to introduce her!!
Vital to the day to day operation of DH, Lesson Assistants ensure safety and smooth running in our lessons. They each bring unique skills to enhance both learning and horse welfare. Our approach to lessons is as a team, so as we collaborate to give the best experience for riders, DH owners learn to improve programs because of the skill that they bring.
Hannah - Lead Lesson Assistant

Gaby - Lesson Assistant
NEW in 2023
With an aging herd and a growing rider base, we're thrilled to have brought on a new aspect of the DH staff. DH Assistants are seasoned riders with excellent riding ability. They can be seen helping riders get ready for classes and then riding with classes on horses that need their buckets filled.
Jr Lesson Assistants
New here at DH we are taking our in house leadership to a new level. With bringing on 3 youths as Jr. Lesson Assistants we are giving back to some riders by employing them sometimes for the first time. As a Jr Lesson Assistant they are tasked with ranch chores, catching horses, grooming and catching in preparation for lessons. Be sure to thank them for all thier dedication
