Facility Manager / Trainer

Annita Jenkins

Hi, I’m Annita Jenkins. I grew up with animals and my family has had horses all my life… ever since I can remember I have always had a passion for horses and loved learning everything I can about them. 

I have been training horses for about 5+ years now. I have experience with training anything from wild mustangs, starting colts, problem horses, and tune ups.

My Testimonial

Jordan Ridge Equestrian has been my horses home and I can't be happier for the care she receives. The staff is knowledgeable and always available to answer any questions I have. The facilities are top-notch and my horse loves her stall and turnout.

My Testimonial

I have taken riding lessons at Jordan Ridge Equestrian Center for the past six months and have seen such an improvement in my riding abilities. The trainers are patient, knowledgeable, and always make the lessons fun. I love the indoor and outdoor arenas and the variety of horses to choose from.
