Meet our Instructors:

Jennifer has trained under Lyndi Prettyman “R” hunter and jumper judge, Carolyn Krome, Sally Cousins and Claudia Kleinsmith. She has her bachelors in psychology from UMBC and is a certified life coach.

She has competed in hunters extensively up to the A circuit, as well as successfully competing her home started and trained horse through novice level eventing.
