For those of you who do not know Jennifer, she grew up riding at Saddle Rowe and has maintained a relationship with both Tina and Sue throughout her very successful riding career. She has a strong background competing in the hunter, jumper, and, as a junior, equitation ring. Early in her career, she trained with Canadian Olympic medalist, Jay Hayes. Since turning professional, Jennifer has competed and trained juniors of all ages. This summer, she had incredible success, placing top 4 in every international derby, and 8th at international derby finals. She joins us from Grazing Fields Farm where she has worked for the past 7 years. Jennifer will be taking over Jen Olsen’s lessons and training rides after the transition is complete.
Jen fell in love with DJ due to their shared passion for horses and the couple was married in 2015. DJ started his riding career at his family farm, Huntersbrook Stable. He spent his junior years working with George Morris at Hunterdon Farm where he learned all the tools of proper horseback riding and horse training. DJ has had a very successful career in the equitation and junior jumper ring and has competed in the Grand Prix ring with success. This summer, he had top results in the 1.30s and has helped junior riders achieve their goals while working with his wife at Grazing Fields Farm. At Saddle Rowe, DJ will focus on sale horses, and the jumpers.
