Jamie spent her early riding years working off lessons at a barn close to her home in Michigan. Her love of horses never dwindled. During college she had an opportunity to work at a horse rescue and ride in the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) with the Purdue Equestrian Team.  Shortly after college Jamie was introduced to the world of eventing and has never looked back. Jamie is once again moving her current eventing partner Fonzie up through the levels.

Being able to combine her enjoyment of teaching with her passion for horses is a dream come true.  Whether you or your child are just starting out with horses, are looking to try eventing, or would like to brush up on some skills for Hunter/Jumpers, she can create a program that works best for you and your goals.

Heather Tull

Heather has over 18 years of riding experience and at least 9 years of that time in training horses and coaching.  Her areas of work range from starter lessons or advanced coaching for children and adults to training young horses, resolving problem issues, and polishing up show mounts.  She has been at the Riding Club as a coach since 2015 beginning with the Easy Riders Drill Team.  Her heart and passion lie in the jumping and dressage rings, devoting much of her riding and lessons over the years to those disciplines.

Along with having ridden over 30 different breeds of horses, Heather is flexible in the skills she has to offer.  "I emphasize making the most of the experience and knowledge that was given to me by my coaches and mentors, so I can in turn pass that on to my students.  I believe one of the best ways we give back is by giving forward to those coming after us.  Positive reinforcement, striving for new milestones, learning from mistakes, and overcoming fears while being safe and pursuing good horsemanship is at the core of my teaching."
