PROFILE: DRESSAGE'S DYNAMIC DUO
JAIMEY AND TINA IRWIN:
Life as a Dynamic Dressage Duo
By Kim Beaudoin
On any given day in Wellington, you will find Jaimey
Irwin standing ringside as his wife Tina glides down
centerline . On another day, you may find Tina standing
ringside, as Jaimey makes his way down centerline . Life
is about balance for the pair, in the saddle as well as out
of it . Successful dressage professionals and competitors,
Jaimey and Tina Irwin run their business, Team Irwin
Dressage, the same way that they run their family: with
passion, love, and compromise .
The pair met in the late '90s, while Jaimey was
competing on the Canadian Junior Young Rider Team
with Tina's younger sister . The couple now balances
a family (six-year-old son Gavin, and three-year-old
daughter Marlies) alongside their thriving business .
"Sometimes we add my mother into the mix as well,"
exclaimed Tina . "She's also a dressage professional so it
gets interesting . We really keep it all in the family!"
