Hometown: Guelph, Ontario

Michael joined the Linden Ridge team in November of 2014. He began riding on the family farm at the age of six, and began jumping competitively when he was 13. He currently competes in the Junior/Amateur divisions. 

A student, Michael attends the University of Guelph. Thanks to his family’s involvement in thoroughbred racing as the owners of Sam Son Farm, Michael plans to pursue a future in that field.
