Ingrid Schulz was born in Germany and grew up on a horse farm near Frankfurt am Main. Her parents operated an Equestrian Centre with a riding school, boarding horses and had a small horse breeding operation.
At the age of 15 she was competing in advanced Level Dressage, Show Jumping to 1.30m and Eventing to CIC**. She has also introduced many young horses to the German Young Horse Championship Classes in all three disciplines. She attended the German Junior Eventing Championships and was long listed for the European Eventing Junior Championships. During her competitive career in Germany she competed against the likes of Ingrid Klimke, Michael Jung, and many other German team members. Because of her location, she was able to access high level instructors in all three of her disciplines and she still maintains contact with them.
After High school she finished her Bachelors of Professional Business. During that time, she also completed the Trainer Certifications C, B and Trainer A and was working as a Rider and Instructor at her parents Equestrian Centre.

In the spring of 2013, she moved to Alberta to work for Meadowview, a breeding and training facility in Sherwood Park.

Since arriving in Canada, she has been an active participant at horse shows in the sports of Eventing, Jumping and Dressage, as well as designing and running several successful clinics and events at Meadowview.
In 2014 she finished her second Master Certification in Germany, this time for Breeding and Management, Pferdewirtschaftsmeister Zucht und Haltung. In 2016 she became a Permanent Resident of Canada, which gives her the freedom to increase her riding and training business.

Special clinics are being planned at her home base, as well as other locations in Alberta and other parts of Canada.
