IN MEMORIAM - We offer our condolences to the family and friends of Alice Dorinda 'Dinnie' Greenway, a native of London, ON, who passed away at the age of 102.
A well decorated and accomplished Canadian equestrian throughout her life, Greenway rode horses from a very young age up into her mid-nineties. She grew up riding, breeding and training horses at Brickendale Stables owned by her parents and family since 1926.
Her horses have represented Canada internationally including the Olympics and Pan American Games. Greenway first competed at the Royal Horse Show in 1927 and become one of Canada's first female riders to make her mark as a competitor and later as a judge on the international equestrian stage.
She founded the London Pony Club (Western Ontario Region) in 1940, teaching young riders to care for, compete and enjoy horses. Greenway also became the Honorary Director of The Western Fair and Lifetime Governor of the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair.
Dinnie was inducted into the London Sports Hall of Fame later in her life.
Greenway dedicated her time to countless organizations and foundations both in and out of the horse world. She leaves behind a tremendous legacy and will be remembered for her century of dedication, mentorship and the impact she had in the equestrian community.
We are proud to have Dinnie sit on the CPC Wall of Fame and thank her for all of her contributions.
