"I have known and worked with Jen for over 20 years. She is a truly gifted instructor. She has a knack for meeting a horse and rider and immediately pinpointing their needs. She introduces effective exercises to assist in the horses development and help the rider "feel" the progress achieved. Furthermore, Jen is dedicated to pursuing her own professional development. Over the years, I have watched her horsemanship evolve, in constant pursuit of best practices to strengthen the bond between horse and rider."
