Jen Armstead

Jaid Stables is proud to introduce our Assistant Trainer, Jen Armstead.

Jen has had a passion for horses since the age of seven spending her young riding career as a working student. Jen strived to learn and perfect the skill of horse care, farm care, training and teaching techniques. Jen was no stranger to hard work!

Originally from New York, Jen started her show career in the hunter ring. Jen excelled at showing both green horses as well as top-notch hunters. Jen found her place in the equitation ring while she was completing her Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology and Exercise Physiology. Jen was the captain of the University of Delaware’s Intercollegiate Horse Shows Association Team (IHSA) for two years where she successfully led a team of over 80 members. The University of Delaware’s team qualifying for zones every year was a tribute to the team’s hard work and Jen’s leadership (Go Blue Hens! -Jen). As a further testament to her riding abilities, Jen competed as an individual rider at Nationals four times during her collegiate career.

Jen moved to Georgia to attend Life University and graduate as a Doctor of Chiropractic. She is currently working on humans, but soon plans to become certified in equine chiropractic care as well.

After completing her collegiate studies, Jen returned to her passion of training young horses and riders, finding the joy in watching them grow. Jen’s teaching style has always been based around smart, safe, and skillful riding as well as proper horsemanship on the ground. Jen’s teaching style encompasses both proper horsemanship on the ground and smart, safe, skillful riding. We know that Jen’s contagious positivity and can-do attitude will be an attribute to Jaid Stables as she encourages and trains our rides and our equine partners!
