Continuing Education: Several horses have gone with Jeanne 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. Continuing education remains a priority.
Horse shows: It is not necessary to be interested in showing to be welcome at Karver's Creek. However, Jeanne and many students do enjoy some competitions around the region. Jeanne has great success in the show arena and loves the environment. While in Florida, horses participate in shows at White Fences and Global Dressage Festival.
Biography: Raised on a farm that boarded horses and harvested hay in Indiana, dressage education was always my primary interest. However, dressage was not yet popular in the midwest. We also jumped, showed western games, drove pony carts and rode in parades. I was surrounded by many breeds and personalities of horses. After graduating from Purdue University, I finally 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. My personal horse, Wonder, is schooling the Grand Prix currently and we aim for a debut in 2019. I raised and trained Wonder her entire life.
