Jen learned to ride with many different instructors. All of these instructors taught her different aspects of horsemanship. Because of this, she is very open minded and knows when a different approach may be needed.
Jen is always looking to expand her professional knowledge and personal riding skills. She continues to lesson and clinic with other professionals as opportunity allows. She believes that people never stop learning. She thinks of riding and showing as fantastic "life tools". They teach discipline, patience, teamwork, follow-through, initiative, competitiveness, friendship, work ethic, trust, purpose, and dedication.
