Jennifer Bauer

Jennifer Bauer is an internationally known gaited horse clinician who conducts clinics throughout the United States, Canada and Europe. Jennifer’s education has come from classical dressage instructors and has taken everything she has learned to the gaited horse. Jennifer works with riders to create communication and trust with their equine partner. Through this, riders learn how their aides, balance, and movements affect the horse’s movement. Horse’s mirror what the rider does, the more the rider is aware of what they do, the better the rider can communicate with their horse.
