What people are saying about Equestrian101...
Jenny is a phenomenal rider and trainer. She has done wonders with my American Warmblood gelding. She understands the importance of a good dressage foundation and cross-training the horses inside and out of the arena. You can't go wrong with Equestrian101!
I've had the good fortune to train with Jenny off and in for the last 6 years. Every lesson is a clinic. She breaks down ever element until the horse and rider understand the lesson and are successful. She's supportive and patient but defiantly will push you when you really need it to get to the next level. I highly recommend her for those starting out to advanced riders.
Jenny is an excellent instructor! She is great at identifying key issues and knows just how much to push both horse and rider while still keeping things light and fun. She is a true horsewoman, passionate, and dedicated to the sport. I have had the pleasure of lessoning on her personal horse who is a great teacher as well and a testament to Jenny's training.
Jenny is an excellent and knowledgeable instructor - she has taught my daughter and her horse confidence and skill
Trainer Niall Quirk
"Jenny is a sponge for knowledge and I appreciate that she truly strives to improve her training and education with each ride. She is wonderful to teach and a lovely person."
Lisa Law Dunn
"As a small breeding farm, we require a trainer versatile enough to start horses, train with dressage principles, and also jump. Jenny Gardner has been doing this for us since fall 2014 and she is doing a great job bringing along green horses."
Emily Granum Haight
"Jenny is very professional and a pleasure to work with. She is knowledgable and thoughtful in her dealings with both horses and clients. She uses classical German techniques with a positive and kind application. I have watched Jenny work with numerous young horses and am always impressed with how well rounded, correct and happy the horses are in their work. Jenny also has a talent for explaining concepts, biomechanics, aids, and movements in a way that is easy to understand for the rider. I am grateful for the opportunity to learn from Jenny. I highly recommend Jenny to any rider looking to further expand their knowledge of riding and horsemanship."
"Coming from a hunter and equitation background, I looked for a new instructor with more of a classical foundation and I'm so happy that I found Jenny Gardner. She is a wonderful teacher because she communicates so clearly with both horse and rider. Her classical background makes for well rounded training across disciplines. I have enjoyed working with Jenny and she has inspired me to learn more about dressage."
