Jennifer Grant had the great fortune of growing up in Colorado with horses as a centerpiece. From a very young age, she was exploring the National forests on horseback, starting colts under saddle in the round pen, and competing in versatility events. After completing a BA in Liberal Arts, she spent 4 years working as a mounted park ranger in Boston.
In 2000, Jennifer’s passion for horse training drew her back to a career in dressage, where she has been able to nurture her insatiable thirst for learning. Among the milestones on this journey are the USDF Instructor Certification, L Graduate with distinction, USDF Silver and Bronze medals, and many other competitive successes. Continuing education is always a priority with a focus on basics as a touchstone for all the work at every level. She continues to train with Pamela Goodrich after spending time with Pam as a working student. Jennifer has also ridden in clinics with Lilo Fore, Olivia LaGoy Weltz, Jeremy Steinberg, Lendon Grey, Steffen Peters, Courtney King Dye, and Jane Savoie.
Jennifer provides a custom program for each individual with practical application of classical theory and horsemanship. From seat lessons on the lunge line to providing tools for progressive learning of the movements, Jennifer provides thoroughness, compassion and dedication to harmony and joy in the horses and riders she works with. Her students include riders new to dressage or overcoming fears, as well as those competing through the FEI levels. Some of her students have earned their USDF bronze and silver medals, while others have conquered their fear of cantering or regained their joy of riding after a long hiatus.
