Jenn is a native of Oklahoma and grew up in Texas. More an anomaly of the equine world than not, she didn’t grow up riding; as her first horse wasn’t a part of her life until she was 12 years old. She is a graduate of Tarleton State University (Stephenville, TX) where she majored in Marketing and competed in the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Assocaition rodeos in the goat tying, breakaway roping, and barrel racing. Currently she resides in South Dakota with her cowboy on his family’s 8,500 acre ranch. Primarily the ranch is a Black Angus cow/calf operation and raises Registered American Quarter Horses. She has been training horses for the public for about 10 years and giving riding lessons for around 15 years. Jenn enjoys telling the story of the joys and sorrows of living on a South Dakota working ranch.

Potato pancakes

I love potatoes. In fact if you don’t like potatoes I’m pretty sure we can’t be friends. I realize they’re probably not the best thing to eat if you’re trying to lose weight, but since the Super Bowl was this past weekend and I busted out some homemade potato skins, I had leftover potatoes.

My favorite Super Bowl Ad

The Chevy Ad with the Hereford bull called “Romance” takes the cake. That commercial is just genius. Genius I tell you!

Coffee From Haiti for Haiti

I made some great friends, met folks who’re involved in ag from all around the world, learned a lot, and of course had fun! I got to visit the Kentucky Horse Park, […]

The Colt Cam Chronicles

Saturday, I put ride #10 on Fridge. It was our second ride in the big pen (read- outside the round pen, but still in the barn), and his second time in a snaffle. Because I have trouble “letting go” I haven’t ridden him much in a bit, because I un-intentionally inhibit his forward progress. I’m […]

Self Awareness through the Horse

I was supposed to head to Texas on Tuesday to run at my favorite barrel race. BUT Avie turned up sore, my tennis elbow isn’t cooperating, and as such, no barrel race for me. If you’ve followed me for any length of time, you’ll know that we practice Buck Brannaman style horsemanship at the ranch. […]
