Danica is an international show jumping rider with a strong background in eventing, which has earned her numerous accolades; including being shortlisted for the 2011 Pan Am Games and selected for the

Canadian High Performance Training Lists.

Danica has taken her knowledge and experience into the show jumping ring,

ultimately aiming to fulfill her goal of riding for Team Canada.

​Having competed at the Grand Prix level with her partner Camouflage, Danica is now focusing on producing multiple exciting up and coming young horses with aims for Grand Prix.

With impressive talent for developing young horses, Danica prides herself in properly producing young horses and has a wonderful ability to bring out the best in their talent.

Originally from Salmon Arm, British Columbia, Canada, Danica began riding at age nine.

Upon moving to Virginia and taking a working student position for Canadian Team rider Rebecca Howard, Danica produced several horses through the levels of eventing and was quickly recognized

as an up and coming talent for Team Canada.

In 2012, Danica opted to focus on a career in show jumping, and she took a winter riding position for Grand Prix rider Aaron Vale. She then joined forces with Meyerhoff Show Horses and has produced multiple horses through the levels; including several young jumpers, sold as four-year-olds who have continued their careers, successfully winning in the Six-Year-Old Young Jumper classes in 2013.

Danica has successfully coached children from beginner to advanced, and believes in establishing solid fundamentals and horse management skills as a base for success in today’s young riders.

Many of Danica’s students are accomplished in all areas of the sport including Medal Finals and IEA.

“It was like jumping into the

deep end of the pool with ankle

weights on. I knew starting over was

going to be hard, but I wasn’t prepared for how hard it got. I was in a new 

industry with new faces and new riding style and so much to learn. Nonetheless, I’ve worked my way back up from the bottom and can’t wait to pursue jumping Grand Prix and World Cups in the years to come, fulfilling my ultimate goals of riding for

Team Canada.” 


– Danica Meyerhoff


Show Jumping enjoys its place, both nationally and internationally, as one of the most popular and perhaps most recognizable equestrian events, aside from Thoroughbred horse racing. At its highest competitive level, Show Jumping is recognized as one of the three Olympic equestrian disciplines alongside both Dressage and Eventing. Essentially, what pole vaulting, high jump and hurdles are to track and field, Show Jumping is to equestrian sport.

Spectator friendly and easy to understand, the object for the show jumper is to negotiate a series of obstacles, where emphasis is placed on height and width, and to do so without lowering the height (knocking down) or refusing to jump any of the obstacles. The time taken to complete the course is also a factor. The show jumping course tests a horse’s athleticism, agility and tractability while simultaneously testing a rider’s precision, accuracy and responsiveness. 


The modern show ring hunter’s roots were established in Europe when gentry rode across the countryside hunting for game, often aided by dogs used to track the prey. The horses were necessary to carry their riders many miles over the varied terrain of the countryside in pursuit of their game, often negotiating the creeks, ditches, walls, and fences they encountered along the way. Although somewhat recreational from its beginning, the task of the working hunter became less rugged and more refined and competitive, thus the show ring hunter was born. Subjectively judged, the modern show ring hunter must exhibit the traits desired of a good field hunter — calm disposition, good manners, smooth gaits, steady way of going, and pleasant and efficient jumping ability — but must do so with style, presence and superior technique.

Conformation, athleticism, disposition, and jumping form all combine to define a winning show ring hunter.
