MARK LASKIN

A familiar face in Canada’s equestrian community, Mark Laskin of Langley, BC, has been heavily involved with the Canadian Show Jumping Team for the past three decades, first as a rider, and now as the team’s newest chef d’équipe. Laskin officially took over the role on October 1, 2012, after spending several years mentoring under his predecessor, Terrance ‘Torchy’ Millar.

Born in New York, Laskin got his start with horses when his family moved to Edmonton when he was five. His mother, a long-time horse lover, would take Laskin to the Whitemud Equine stables in lieu of leaving him with a babysitter. Since his early beginnings in the sport, Laskin has enjoyed tremendous success both as a rider and coach. In 2007, Laskin was inducted into the Jump Canada Hall of Fame as part of the gold medal winning team at the 1980 Alternate Olympics with Damuraz. The pair put in one of only three double-clear rounds to lead Canada to victory.

Laskin competed at the grand prix level throughout the United States and Canada from his base in Santa Fe, New Mexico, before returning to Canada in 1997. He now owns and operates Equimark Inc., a riding and training business based in Langley, in partnership with grand prix competitor, Brian Morton.
