At Journey's End Lessons and Training, our philosophy is simple: Good riding is only possible when there is an equal partnership between horse and rider. Our trainer, Jenny Karrick, has spent her long career developing a comprehensive understanding of the communication that makes that deep partnership possible. Her unique style of training incorporates a rigorous course of Classical theory in a relaxed, and friendly, environment. Ms. Karrick will evaluate your current level of riding expertise, and tailor an individualized training regimen that will help you meet (and exceed) your goals.

Throughout her career, Ms. Karrick has honed and perfected her training techniques to foster in her students both a thorough knowledge of Classical English Riding Theory, and great respect for the horses who make riding possible. A life-long resident of the greater Ann Arbor area, Jenny has contributed to the equestrian culture of Washtenaw County by training a large number of local and regional students. The success on the Hunter/Jumper A-Circuit of the retired race horses whom she has trained has brought the practice of Off-Track Thoroughbred Re-Training into the regional spotlight.

Whether during her education at the hands of Olympic level trainers, or via her own experience as a world-class competitor, Jenny's emphasis has always been on the Joy that a rider feels when horse and rider perform as one. She wishes to share that joy with you.
