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.

A June Wedding

If the low number of blog posts wasn’t an indication of how busy this summer has been, maybe this will be a clue: Here are my favorite photos, shot at a wedding in June. Yes. I said JUNE! But I suppose it’s better to share late than not share at all, so without further ado, […]
