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.

Tuesday’s Tales: The Great Escape

It was a lovely, unseasonably warm, early April Saturday night. There was extra family in from town, and plans were made to go to dinner at our local steakhouse, about 13 miles away, because what do ranchers eat when they’re not eating their own steak? Steak. I’d spent the day doing various chores, doctoring a […]
