    My daughter was able to ride with Kelsey at KJ Equestrian this summer. The indoor was wonderful for the Wisconsin winters. The horses were healthy and well-cared for. Kelsey is just the right kind of trainer: calm and encouraging. I highly recommend.

    I have been riding with Jennifer for about 3 years and I have learned so much from her, how to ride, train, and understand horses. I have had many opportunities to ride some incredible horses and do some amazing things with them. Me and Pearl (the horse I ride) have learned and achieved so much with the help of Jennifer. All the instructors are super willing to help me with all of my equine goals no matter what they are. I couldn’t ask for better instruction and horses to help me grow as a rider!

    The main thing I LOVE about Idylwood is that the focus is on the horse. The training I'm receiving is definitely contributing to an improvement in my skills, but first and foremost I am asked to be a horsewoman, not just a horse rider. From the first moment I am with the horse I'll be riding, Jaime helps me be a better partner to the horse by coaching me to think about the animal: its state of mind, its comfort level, its habits, its particular personality. I am looking forward to a long, productive, and satisfying future at Idylwood - and I sincerely hope that whatever horse I'm riding will always feel the same about me!

      About

      Having grown up on a nature-based horse farm and riding school in rural NY, I have an instinctive and primal love of horses. My mother started our USPC, the Garrison Pony Club, and by the age of 12, I was helping her teach riding lessons and summer camps. I earned my B rating at the age of 14 and decided to slow down when my horse was diagnosed with navicular. I'm very empathetic to the horse's experience and continue to bring a sensitive eye and heart into the arena. As an adult, I studied movement arts and therapies, namely dance, martial arts, yoga, authentic movement, and the Alexander technique. All of which inform my focus as a rider, trainer, and instructor. I provide group, semi-private, or private lessons in equitation, Dressage or jumping. I enjoy helping people understand and be sensitive to their horse's body language and develop a collaborative working relationship with their partner. Must provide own horse.
