Marianne Loughlin grew up in Ajax, Ontario and started taking lessons at Dreamcrest in 1986 when it was in Claremont. Marianne pursued a Bachelor’s Degree in Anthropology at Trent University, but returned to Dreamcrest (then on Shirley Road) in 1991. She competed in dressage and eventing and developed several young horses. Her passion for teaching inspired her to become certified as a Level 1 coach in 1997.
Marianne is now a Level 2 coach with dressage specialization who continues to hone her riding skills with coaches Ian Roberts and John McPherson. She is developing her talented young warmblood gelding Tanzy as a dressage horse and when she’s not at Dreamcrest, she enjoys spending time with her husband and two daughters.
