Who We Are



Valerie Broadfoot, DVM



Val has practiced veterinary medicine in

the High River area for some thirty-five years.  She graduated

from Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 1971 and was amongst

four of the first women to do so.  Val hung up her stethoscope and surgery gloves a few

years ago, and since her retirement, when she is not stuck at home feeding horses

(thanks mom!), she can be found in the backcountry West

of here on the back of a horse, blazing trail. She is

the heart and soul of what we do.



John E. A. Kidd



JK’s life is the stuff of fairy tales and so

is his equestrian background.  The man and his mount jumped

7’3” at the Royal Winter Fair in 1968.  After retiring from his show jumping

career in the early 70s, JK turned to polo, and during that time became one of the highest

rated amateur players in England, achieving a five-goal handicap. Even

better than all this, he recalls seeing Absent in real life at

Denmark’s Concours Hippique International

Officiel in Copenhagen in 1962.



Cynthia Swensen



Cynthia had the good fortune of growing

up the daughter of two veterinarians and living her whole life

in the country surrounded by animals.  She rode for a number of

years at Spruce Meadows under the tutelage of Jonathan Asselin, an alternate rider on

Canada’s Olympic Team (Syndney 2000, London 2012).  Before that, she rode under Olympic Silver

Medalist Michel Vaillancourt.  In 2006, her riding career ended when she broke her neck at an eventing clinic.

Cynthia has a Master’s Degree in Philosophy and is a trained Broadcast Journalist.

Since 2006 she has become an Lifetime Member (#05372) of the

American Society of Equine Appraisers.
