JMD Spotlight Client, Rachel Gaines is a 15 year old Junior Rider. Rachel began riding with Jen in 2010, competing on her various leased horses and then her own pony “Bigger Than a Breadbox.” Rachel has shown at many USDF recognized dressage shows with scores up to the high 60’s under Jen’s instruction. Rachel is a sophomore at Archibishop Mitty High School and just purchased Fabrizio, an 15 year old imported 3rd level Hanoverian. “Fabs” was previously owned and ridden by Jaclyn’s client Elise Cutini. When asked about Jaclyn and Jen, Rachel says, “I think I can speak for all of Jacky and Jen’s clients when saying that they never fail to create an encouraging and positive environment in the barn that anyone can thrive in. Their teaching styles compliment each other nicely, and they are both so passionate when it comes to helping their clients be happy and successful. They have transformed me into the rider I am today, and I couldn’t be more grateful for that. To me, Jacky and Jen are more than simply my coaches. They’ve always been people I can confide in and feel comfortable around. They’re my role models, and I could never imagine riding with anyone else.”
