About Us

We have a wonderful group of customers and horses at Shadowbrook. Our clients have a wide range of ability levels in all disciplines, with juniors and amateurs, as well as a mixture of young horses and more experienced horses. At Shadowbrook, we teach the riders about responsibility, dedication, hard work, patience, and feel as they develop the skills and understanding of how to be a good horseman.  The horse learns about trust, responsiveness to the aids, strengthening and desire as they become seasoned athletes.  At Shadowbrook, we love every part of this process and enjoy seeing how both the horse and rider learn and improve daily.

​Shadowbrook’s horses and riders have also won many year-end awards in Hunter, Jumpers and Equitation for Open, Amateur and Junior Divisions. Jeni has also been the recipient of the Sportsmanship award for LAHJA and SFHJA, and in 2011 received a National Professional Affiliate award from USHJA.

Jeni grew up at her parent's riding stable, also named Shadowbrook, in southern Vermont. She attended St. Lawrence University, in Canton NY, and in 1991 she graduated with a Bachelor of Science with honors in Psychology and Mathematics. She was Co-Captain of SLU's Equestrian Team and President of the Riding Club.

Jeni is always excited to go to the barn, and truly loves the process of training the horses and the riders. Seeing their improvement is so rewarding for Jeni, she enjoys going to the shows but not because of the ribbons they win, but to witness and celebrate the progress and improvement of the horses and riders. Jeni is so proud to be a part of that process and share in their victories no matter how big or small.
