 Wyndham St. John has been training in England since 1998. She and Oliver, her 11-year-old thoroughbred gelding, recently completed the Olympic-level Badminton three day event in Britain. They have also gained experience with solid finishes in several three-star events, including an eighth place at the 1998 Rolex Kentucky Three Day Event. Most recently St. John competed in the Cornbury Park Advanced Horse Trials on July 22-23, placing twenty-third from fifty-four entries with a clear cross-country jumping round.

  She began her riding career at Southlands Riding Club in Vancouver at an early age. Both her mother and grandmother competed in English and Western divisions while her father was involved in training horses.

  From 1979 to 1991, Wyndham put her riding on hold to concentrate on her studies at the University of California followed by Boston College where she received her bachelor's degree in nursing. She then specialized in pediatric bone marrow transplant at the Boston Children's Hospital.

  Wyndham married Nicolas Tafuro and settled in Oregon where she worked part-time in the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit at the University of Oregon Hospital.
