The Stablebuzz Story

About Our CEO


Our founder and CEO, Colin Schmidt grew up on a horse ranch that offered riding lessons, trail rides, birthday parties, and summer camps in Chilliwack, BC, Canada. He completed ten years of 4-H Horse Club showing, both English and Western, and started Vaulting in the late 80s. In the time frame of 1995 to 2010, he competed internationally for Canada, including all World Equestrian Games. At the peak of his competitive career, Colin was ranked 16th in the world by the FEI.

Colin was the master course conductor for the coaching program in vaulting in Canada for many years. He has coached athletes from beginner to the world championship level. Currently while focusing on Stablebuzz, Colin is presently only clinching and judging. He has been judging for the last seven years and he judged his first international vaulting competition in 2018. Currently, he is working on his next level of certification with the FEI.

In the late 90’s Colin founded VaultCanada as part of the restructuring of Equestrian Canada. He has been a member of the Sports Council for many years, was the chair of the multi-discipline High-Performance Committee for six years and held the position of an EC board member for one term.
