Taylor Mcfall- Academy Instructor/Trainer

With a lifetime spent around horses, Taylor McFall’s passion for equestrian sports runs deep. Growing up at Dragonfire, Taylor had the privilege of being exposed to high level coaching and riding from a a young age. This exposure to the world of horsemanship inspired Taylor to pursue a professional career as a Three-Day Eventer. Skilled at competition- she has competed up to the 3 star level and has even been scouted as a team member of the NAYC Eventing Junior Championship team. Taylor is great at connecting with kids and since 15 she has been sharing what she’s learned as a riding instructor for young students. As Head Academy Instructor; she coordinates the majority of kid’s activities provided at Dragonfire, from the cheerful Jingle Bell show, to the Summer Camps, to the Derbies. With lot’s of horse know-how and dedication she produces a great learning environment where students learn to care for horses, ride, cheer on their fellow equestrians, and of course-Have FUN!

Cheron Laboissonniere- Breeding Manager/Scheduling

Dragonfire owes its existence and direction to Cheron, Jennifer’s mother. Her vision and ability to see it through, has made Dragonfire Farm what it is today. Her love of producing tomorrow’s champion continues to be her greatest passion.

Cheron schedules all lessons at Dragonfire and also teaches a popular weekend group of enthusiastic “mature ladies” and greatly enjoys doing so. Because she started her riding career as an adult, going on to win World titles in Dressage, she has a unique ability to relate her knowledge of horsemanship to her students, assisting in conquering their fears for riding. Horses, friendship and home-baked goods are the foundation of her classes, which many ladies enjoy.
