About us & our farm

 

Jennifer began riding in 1966 and has been seriously involved in dressage since 1969. As a young girl, Jennifer enjoyed 3 day eventing (on her horse Devish below). In 1971 she attended the Von Neindorff Riding Institute in Germany. In 1980 Jennifer received her Bachelor of Science from UC Davis in Plant Pathology. In the early 1980's she earned the USET/ ASMIS Scholarship grant which allowed her to return to Germany to ride with Olympic veterans, Karin Schluter and Margit Otto-Crepin. Upon returning from Germany, Jennifer settled in Carmel Valley, California and began importing warmbloods, training and continued competing in dressage.

Along with training and competing, Jennifer began a Lipizzan breeding program in the early 1990's. Her goal is to improve the quality of Lipizzans in the United States and promote this endangered breed.
