Continuing Education: Several horses go with Jeanne every year to Wellington for part of the winter season to enhance education and performance in dressage. The experience of being a rider in training during those couple months brings new ideas and deeper understanding every year. When not in Wellington, Jeanne gets regular instruction to keep "out of the comfort zone." Clinics, symposiums or USDF programs are attended throughout the year. Continuing education is a top priority.
Biography: Raised on a farm that boarded horses and harvested hay in Indiana, dressage education was peppered into everything that we did with horses. I was surrounded by many breeds and personalities and explored different styles of riding. After graduating from Purdue University, I enjoyed the advantage of mobility. I worked at professional barns in several locations throughout the U.S. and learned from many wise and generous people. I decidedly focused on dressage while gaining more skills in ground training and management of the equine athlete. Even though I still cross train all the horses in my charge, I focus my performance exclusively in dressage and enjoy reaching for lofty goals in competition. I have dubbed my current show horses, "The Grey Girls". I backed them as three-year-olds and trained them through the levels. Both have already been successful through Intermediare and are continuing to work toward Grand Prix. The debut is planned for 2019.
