Rising Star Riding Academy | Utah Photographer

My daughter has been taking horseback riding lessons since she was in Kindergarten. She is a natural and loves everything about it – the horses, the barn cats, the hard work, the fast speeds, the jumping, and especially her trainer.

This is her trainer, Jenn. She is a dream come true and as a mother, I am so grateful to have her in my daughter’s life. Not only is she a skilled and accomplished rider, she’s an amazing trainer who teaches with love, patience, and passion. Watching her work with my daughter often brings me to tears.

As a parent, I am always on the lookout for those special teachers and leaders who fill the gaps of the inadequacies I possess. Jenn is one of those special people in our village who help fill those gaps. She’s teaching so much more than just how to ride a horse. I will forever be grateful to the life lessons my daughter learns out in the arena with Jenn.
