JennMarie Equestrian

Animals were always a passion, and getting horses at 14 years old threw Jenn deep into the never-ending passion that all horse people can relate to... Horses became a therapy, and an expensive one. She found the best way to afford education in the equestrian world was buying, training and selling horses and she credits the many horses who came and went as her teachers as well as the trainers she followed. She also was building a business as a freelance artist at the same time, creating and selling artwork to pay for her training. 

 

Through lessons and mentorships, she began to build her own style and found preference for Liberty training along with her Dressage education, using positive based reinforcement training along with a relationship directed care for the mental/emotional side of animals. This adventure is far from over, she spends her time focusing on advancing the quality of her horsemanship with her herd of quarter horses, Vega, Orbit and Tana and is always looking for ways to share this wonderful connective place that you can find with a horse. 

"It took time but I feel like I found the key to the door of a horse's heart... I feel intertwined with them, more so now than ever. We can follow each others thoughts and this connection is improving everyday. I really want to help others feel this, and watching the healing that happens in people hearts when they are around horses brings me so much Joy. I truly feel God speaks love to us through these incredible animals."

Meet the Horses! 
Tana
Tana is a red dun mare, who was sold to me in her 11th year. She was considered 'troubled' and 'unpredictable' and she was one of my rehabilitation horses that I grew very attached to. I relate to her sensitivity and spirit in many ways. She loves her independence and did not respond well to her previous 'traditional' training.  She is always teaching me something, she is not always easy but she has been the most rewarding to work with and I love her!

Orbit

Orbit was the first baby I had bred: Starsgoodinvestment with Badgers Double Delight = Badgers Starry Orbit, born in 2018

 

He is a sensitive guy with a desire to figure out what is being asked of him, he prefers safety over adventure and loves his routine, I can use that desire as a motivation factor, giving him tasks that he feels safe in as a reward while challenging him to try new things. He is the first horse I started using clicker training with along with experimenting with a higher degree of positive reinforcement in my work with horses. He has a future in Liberty for sure and we are looking at possibly Ranch Riding as well.

Vega

'Wimpys in Town' 2018

I purchased Vega in 2018 when she was four months old, she was born 7 days after Orbit was. They grew up together and are the best of friends. She has a sensitive but confident personality and she loves figuring out puzzles and exploring. She is the first to check out something new, every thing I teach her seems to come naturally. Her favorite moves are the rear, lay down and spanish walk. She has strong reining lines and has a future in the Reining world. She also is talented in complex liberty work and during her saddle start, she showed me that she can excel with bridleless at 2 years old. I'm very excited to see where she will take me!

Past Training Horses

I have had the privilege to work for a Friesian farm for many years, training up the young horses for sale as well as working with their Stallion in their breeding program. I also have had many, many wonderful clients over the years for training and lessons. Things have changed and I currently have limited slots for clients as I focus on my own horse's futures.
