Shelly has a long-time association with horses. Growing up she was always around horses since both her father and grandfather owned them. Shelly was involved in 4H, showing horses, barrel racing, and gymkhana events. A 25 year career as an exercise rider has taken her to racetracks across Canada and in the US. For the past four years Shelly has been with North American Thoroughbred Horse Co. working at Hastings Racetrack. She now joins the office staff as an Administrative Assistant and is responsible for keeping track of the details of Glen Todd's horses including their whereabouts at any particular time, be it a training centre, racetrack or downtime at the farm, medical history and training schedules. As well, Shelly is the liaison between North American Thoroughbred Horse Co. track and office personnel. Her personal knowledge of the horses and the people involved in the training and care of them is a great asset to the North American Thoroughbred Horse Co. family.
