Belgian Judge

Kyle was born and raised on an equine ranch in Virden, Manitoba, Canada. Kyle grew up showing a hitch of Clydesdales with his family across western Canada. At age 19, he moved to Oklahoma to pursue a career in the draft horse business. This opportunity provided Kyle with jobs in both Missouri and Texas for 5 years, showing a six horse hitch of Clydesdale geldings, winning a number of National Championships.

In 2011, Kyle and his wife Marcia moved to Sunderland, Ontario, where they managed and trained the Country Lane Belgians. Kyle and Marcia started a family, with 2 daughters, Hadley and Ryleigh. Over a period of 7 years, they accumulated a number of achievements with the hitch.

In the fall of 2017, the Forsyth family moved to southeastern Idaho, to continue their careers with the Double S Belgians. They added another daughter, Everly in 2021. Their family continues to successfully campaign the Double S Belgians for the Smith family at a number of shows across North America.
