Trainer- Jennifer Foss
Jennifer has more than ten years of training experience, growing up riding at a dressage academy in River Falls, WI. She then spent years riding under the instruction of Adam Steffens, who she still rides with. Jennifer also studied Arab show horse training while grooming for P&H Horse and Cattle Co. In owning a large facility Jennifer has the pleasure of welcoming other trainers into the facility. She has been able to work closely with Ken Larson learning natural horsemanship and young horse starting techniques that have greatly benefited the training program at Ivory Hills Stable. This training has allowed Jennifer to start horses and get them going in the right direction. Kris Hansen was also a very influential mentor to Jennifer and helped her identify Pathomechanics of the horse. In addition, she taught Jennifer about specialized care and how to bring along and maintain special needs horses. Miss Kris introduced Jennifer to a number of equine professionals that have helped keep the horses in her program happy, healthy and sound. These professionals have extended their services to IHS and Jennifer's training horses, making frequent visits to the facility to help maintain our animals. Jennifer frequently attends clinics and lessons with many trainers including Julie Julian, Olivia Weltz, Anne Cizaldo and Allison Sader Larson to name a few. She has achieved USDF Rider Performance Awards through Second Level and is a Bronze Medalist. Jennifer is working on achieving her Silver and Gold medals all on self-trained horses. She has also started a small breeding program striving to produce quality dressage horses.
