MICHAEL TUCKER

Michael TuckerDuring the day, Mike Tucker pulls electrical cable and at night/weekends he is an accomplished horseman. Tucker lives on a tidy private training and boarding stable and is one of Niagara’s most prominent horse trainers and show ring judges. He has been involved with horses for the past 20 years, he presently owns Quarter Horses and Thoroughbreds. 

Using a gentle but firm approach towards horse handling, he demonstrates daily that Wild West bronco-busting methods are dangerous, unnecessary and usually counter-productive. “You have to build a good foundation of trust between rider and horse”, Tucker said.

Tucker uses his four watchwords - patience, persistence, kindness and firmness, to train both horses and their owners, whether it be for the trails or the show ring. “You have to remember that a horse has a mind of its own. By nature it is a creature of flight and it must never resent what you are doing with it. The biggest challenge is keeping its mind fresh”, Tucker says.

Michael TuckerTucker, was encouraged to venture into judging by his friend and prominent horseman/judge Peter Cameron of St. Catherines. Tucker became a junior judge in 1981 and a senior judge in western and stock seat equitation with the Canadian Equestrian Federation in 1985

Tucker has judged some of the finest horseshows in the United States and Canada. Here are a few of the shows he has judged: Canadian National (Toronto, Canada); Cape Breton Exhibition- 6 days/all events (Cape Breton, Nova Scotia); Appaloosa Horse Club of Canada Breeders Futurity; Appaloosa Horse Club of Canada (Nova Scotia); Central Canada Exhibition (Ottawa, Canada) and various Open Horseshows.
