In her hometown of Edmonton, AB, Tani Zeidler began her riding career at the age of fourteen under her own tutelage. Since discovering her passion, she has found immense international success in the equestrian scene.
Tani’s years as a junior competitor were spent showing at the Thermal Desert Circuit in Indio, CA, and the Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington, FL. In 1994, as a fresh graduate from Pepperdine University, Tani placed seventh at her first World Cup Grand Prix in Monterrey Mexico. Receiving numerous Leading Lady Rider titles, she continued on her winning streak and finished second in both the 1994 Grand Prix of Paris and the 1995 Grand Prix of Zurich. 1995 was also notable for being the year that Tani joined the Canadian Equestrian Team Short List and received the Firestone Development Scholarship. That same year, Tani finished seventh in the du Maurier in the “Masters” tournament at Spruce Meadows.
A year after giving birth to her daughter, Julia, Tani earned her spot on the Canadian Show Jumping Team. At the 1998 National Horse Show in New York City, this new mom proved herself to be a formidable addition to the team after earning the best Canadian result in the Nations’ Cup.
Tani is now dedicated to giving back to the sport that she loves through the Zeidler Farm breeding program and by offering world class educational programs facilitated by world renowned riders.
