Jaimey and Tina competing at the Grand Prix CDI in Devon with Dover and Amicelli
Tina and Jaimey's system of training comes directly from the German legends of classical dressage. Both trained in Germany with Holger Münstermann, the well-known World Cup competitor, who himself trained with the highly respected masters: Reiner Klimke, Willi Schultheis, and Harry Boldt.
Tina and Jaimey continue to work with Holger, who flies into Canada and Florida to train the Irwin family. At the same time, they are passing their knowledge and experience on to their own students, who are achieving top results both in the show ring and in achieving their personal goals.
Jaimey and White Socks in Wellington, FL
March 3, 1978
Jaimey was born in Peterborough, Canada and grew up in Lakefield, Ontario on Stoney Lake at his family's resort, The Irwin Inn.
He began riding at the young age of 6, and his competition career began by competing at the local fairs with his first horse. He later went on to do some eventing, and hunter jumper shows. It wasn't until Jaimey was 16 years of age that he decided to commit himself fully to Dressage.
