About JM Quarter Horses
JM Quarter Horses
Following a business career for a large retailer, Jodi was able to turn her passion into her business.
After spending years apprenticing under Lindsay Grice, Jodi struck out on her own with the creation of JM Quarter Horses. Through that time she's worked with countless horses and rider teams developing their skills and talents.
A Kid with a Horse
Jodi started out as a horse crazy kid in Windsor, Ontario. Growing up her family wondered where this incredible passion for horses came from as they were all 'city folk'.
At age 10 her parents finally gave in to the constant begging and allowed her to take riding lessons. After that, she was hooked! Years of lessons and traveling to shows in Hunter/Jumper, Eventing and Dressage gave her the solid foundation needed before her parents bought her that first horse.
That first horse led to her love for the Quarter Horse.
Recently Jodi has had the opportunity to participate in the new developing event of Western Dressage. This is a 'fun' addition to the roster of typical events that clients compete in.
She also coaches several traditional dressage riders to help them improve their foundations and connection with their horses. Jodi's diverse upbringing allows her to meet clients from a variety of disciplines and communicate effectively.
Here's a video of Jodi and her horse HoneyDukes competing in their first virtual Western Dressage show January 2020. They scored 76.875% for a winning ride!
Keeping up with changing times.
Jodi has adapted her business model to include Video Lessons and Analysis. Clients are really enjoying the detailed information they are able to see in these sessions.
Feedback on this format has been outstanding and clients have already seen improved results in their Virtual Horse show placings!
We all look forward to being able to return to live horse shows in the near future and test these skills out.
Coaching & Clinics
Jodi travels throughout Ontario (and beyond) to coach riders in lesson and clinic formats.
Always striving to develop skills that will help horses and riders connect and communicate better; whether that is for the show ring or just enjoying time with your equine partner.
Thank you to Schleese Saddlery for sponsoring my western Legacy saddle. Visit their site here.
The innovative design allows for a completely custom fit for horse and rider, with an emphasis on creating a design that works for a woman’s body structure. Several clients have purchased these saddles and find it much easier to connect with their horses and to achieve better alignment in their bodies.
The horses are more comfortable and happier (as verified by independent equine body workers). Making changes to the saddles as the horses body develops are easy and inexpensive with these adjustable designs.
Thank you to Heather Doig for your assistance with customizing fit and to Schleese for the opportunity to represent you.
