Jenna began her riding career with a passion for horses when she was five years old. Even at that young age, she knew this was more than a hobby – it was her life’s work.

Like any keen equestrian she started lessons at a Local stable. At age 10, she moved to Southern Cross Stables in Windsor, Ont. There, she progressed steadily through the ranks of Pony Club and the Trillium Circuit, training with Jonathon Chestler, a former Grand Prix rider. She later began to compete at Trillium and “A” Circuit shows.

In 1998, she purchased her own talented young mare. A year later, introduced to dressage, Jenna began to train with Heather Buchner, a successful member of the Young Riders Dressage Team. Under Heather’s guidance, Jenna worked her way up the National Junior levels. Throughout this period, she participated in many clinics with Grand Prix riders and trainers Gillian Sutherland and Bill Challis, which thoroughly prepared her and her horse to compete successfully up to Medium Level. 

After a chance introduction in 2002 to Jane Laframboise, a Level 2 USEF hunter/jumper coach, Jenna found her way back to the hunter/jumper world. Jane saw hunter potential in both Jenna and her young horse. Together they trained for the 2005 show season to compete in Adult Amateur Hunters. Throughout the winter Jenna competed at competitions in the U.S. while preparing for the Ontario “A” Circuit that coming summer. 

Next, Jenna embarked on learning how to produce winning hunters and jumpers on the “A” Circuit. She took a position as head FEI groom and barn manager for Margie Gayford, a successful Grand Prix jumper, at Wingberry Farms in King City, Ont.  For two years Jenna and her two horses worked alongside Margie as well as Margie’s father, Tom Gayford, who was a gold medalist in the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City. Through handling every aspect of managing a show stable—from minor to significant—Jenna seized the opportunity to learn all about caring for and training show horses at the elite level. She gained invaluable knowledge and experience throughout her time at Wingberry.

During this time, Jenna had the opportunity to travel North America to many top “A” Circuit shows such as Winter Equestrian Festival, Aiken, Atlanta, Quebec, Collingwood, the Royal and Spruce Meadows, multiple times. She spent countless hours watching ringside, walking FEI-rated and World Cup courses, and discussing different scenarios and training methods with many upper level riders and trainers. This gave Jenna insight into elite level competition and training. In working with these high level equine athletes Jenna also had the opportunity to learn from many elite Equine health care professionals. Knowing how to care for horses properly is just as important as training them. 

All this experience has made Jenna an exceptionally well rounded, knowledgeable coach and trainer. She believes that all riders need a strong training program based on solid foundations. As well, her studies in psychology at the University of Windsor enable her to help manage high-level athletes by incorporating sports psychology and coping mechanisms into their programs.

Jenna currently owns and operates Skyland Stables in Utopia along side her fiancé Andrew and two girls, Isabella and Sienna. 

Skyland offers boarding, training and sales services.  The facility is equipped with all amenities including an indoor arena, outdoor arena, grass turnout, hacking and two new barns. While she has ridden shown and trained herself, her passion is coaching and working with young athletes who demonstrate a strong passion for the sport. 

Jenna currently has students and horses showing successfully on the “A” Circuit in both core and non-core divisions from the Short Stirrup Division up to the Junior/Amateur Jumper Divisions. Many of which qualify annually for the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair.
