Kate Clark


Kate stared with Tally Ho Carriage Tours in 2006 and progressed to Manager based on her vast horsemanship experience across many disciplines. She is dedicated to operating a top-notch, ethical carriage company. Based on her extensive experience and research of other carriage companies she is confident that Tally Ho is on track to be one of the best horse-drawn operations in the world.
Kate grew up with Arabian and Saddlebred horses on her parents farm on Vancouver Island where she began riding lessons at six years old. Her deep passion for horses led her to pursue a career with horses, including chasing her dreams across provincial lines for opportunities to work under Quarterhorse and Arabian horse breeders and trainers; and working at farms all over Vancouver Island in varying disciplines, including dressage and hunter-jumper.
At Tally-Ho, Kate oversees the downtown Victoria operations and works tirelessly to ensure that the company’s key goals of safety, horsemanship and customer service are achieved. Steadfast in her decisions yet open-minded, caring and honest, Kate is an exceptional manager and embodies the family feeling of the company. In addition, and keeping true to her dedication to the horses, Kate relocated to the Tally Ho farm a number of years ago where, with the Friedlander family, she helps to oversee the health and welfare of the herd. She trains new horses and drivers; ensures each horse is physically and mentally fit prior to their work day; and has been instrumental in implementing Tally-Ho’s horse and driver development program.
