Nora Fedoryak is a certified Equestrian Canada Level II Hunter/ Jumper coach currently working full time in Business Development for the FCNQ, a federation of cooperatives in Northern Quebec. Having started riding at age 7, Nora has had the chance to work, ride and show with some top Canadian professionals such as Lisa Carlsen, Jay Hayes, John Pearce and Mark Hayes and top American trainer Lisa O’Neill.
Nora eventually found her passion in coaching and taught over 130 students a week for eight years working for Ann Hodgson and the Académie Équestre de Waterloo. When Nora achieved her level II coaching certification, she decided to go out on her own as a freelance coach. Coaching a provincial team, Nora achieved one of her life long goals to qualify and coach at the Royal Winter Fair – the National Championships for Canada.
With a passion for continuous learning and evolution, Nora has developed THE KNIGHT FOX COMPANY which produces educational equestrian events for all equestrian disciplines. KNIGHT FOX has been very proud to include top clinicians such as Canadian team members Jacqueline Brooks, Gina Smith, Tom Dvorak in Dressage, John Anderson, Angela Covert, Jonathon and Amy Millar in Show Jumping, International dressage judge Cara Whitham and American Grand Prix rider Darren Graziano to name just a few. One of the objectives of these events is to support current and up and coming athletes in the industry by creating visibility and marketing platforms for them. So for this reason Nora is no stranger to keeping an eye on and spotting young talent.
Nora is also an Award Winning Ambassador of Just World International and it is with great honor and enthusiasm that Nora is joining the team at Athletes Dream as our Equestrian Specialist.
