Jane has been working at Strathorn for seventeen years! She started riding horses when she was 34 and now has over 12 years of teaching experience in horse riding. For Jane, the best thing about it is seeing the riders grow and accomplish their goals. ”But”, she says, ”you have to be willing”. Jane teaches both children and adults. She has coached several adults who have competed in the Special Olympics.

In her spare time, Jane enjoys creative writing and playing the flute and the guitar.

I love teaching the children and seeing their confidence grow.
