The DH Team

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....

Our Staff

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.  


Helia - Lesson Assistant 
Helia joined DH as a volunteer in the Summer of 2021.  We quickly learned that her years of experience were a beautiful compliment to the horses and humans at DH.  Helia is a brave, strong, kind and beautiful woman that is an excellent teacher, friend and confidante.  A perfect role model, her approach to teaching is fair, firm, clear and consistent.  Her welcoming nature has made her a favourite in each class.  We can't wait to see where our journey with Helia goes as she grows with DH.  Pictured Helia is in full costume with DH's "Heartly" at a local parade with "The Wildies".  Now it's not mandatory to become a Wildie, but they are equally lucky to have Helia as part of the group...she brings radiant light to all she meets.
