The world of dressage entered Natalie Pai’s life rather than the other way around. She had no choice but to embrace it. When Natalie was only two year old her mother, Melanie Pai, established Canaan Ranch in Texas to breed top horses for the dressage international stage. Natalie grew up watching foals come into this world. She followed each youngster as they advanced into extraordinary dressage athletes like her mom’s Oldenburg stallion, Donates.
