Trina was raised in Duncan BC, where she was involved with horses and 4H from the age of 6. After graduation she moved off the island to pursue barrel racing. She worked and lived
at Douglas Lake Ranch for 20 years, leaving a couple times to pursue other opportunities such as riding with cow horse and reining trainers in Texas and Oklahoma, and in Alberta working at a Hunter Jumper barn. She has always loved all aspects of horses, but mostly spends her time barrel racing. Trina and her family have lived in the Kamloops area for the past 2 years and she has been a veterinary assistant with the Kamloops Large Animal Veterinary Clinic since December 2020.
