Jenn Bruner, Owner/Head Coach
My name is Jenn Bruner, I am the owner, the full time barn staff, the head coach, a horse rescuer, a horse trainer, classical dressage rider (and student of course) and basically the sticky glue that holds this barn together. I’ll admit it, it’s all me, this is my dream, and my passion. I started out as a kid taking weekly riding lessons at an affordable barn. If I hadn’t found that affordable barn I wouldn’t have been able to start back then. I wouldn’t have made it to where I am today. I am thankful for my parents for getting me involved, and for the barn that was able to offer lessons to kids who really couldn’t afford this luxury sport. This is why, regardless of the quality of lessons I bring to the table we aim to keep our prices as affordable as possible. Many of my clients are young students who pay for their lessons themselves and are just thankful to their parents for driving them each week. These are the students who try the hardest and who get the most out of riding, they try so hard and they want to be there.
Riding is excellent exercise, and it is a great confidence builder. Often when you get on a horse it feels like nothing else matters, the worries of your day are gone and you are able to focus on the now. I want everyone who wants to experience it, to be able to.
I am passionate. In many ways. I want to bring along students who understand the horse, and who are able to think like trainers themselves and help the horses they ride improve with each ride. I strive to bring up great horses as well. I teach my horses manners and ground work so they know what is expected of them, they understand their role thoroughly and they can be happy and enjoy their job, just as I enjoy mine.
