A New England transplant (with no regrets), Meggan grew up taking English riding lessons, participating in Pony Club, eventing, and soaking up all the knowledge she could from her coaches and mentors. She went on to work as a Veterinary Technician in Vermont, California, and Montana. She also competed in eventing through the Preliminary Level, groomed for Canadian Olympic Team member Kelli (McMullen) Temple, and worked in the vet boxes for 3-Day events at Radnor, Morven Park, Woodside, and Ram Tap. Now, as an instructor and barn owner herself, Meggan combines her Veterinary Technician training, deep love for teaching, and obsession with horse care to keep all the PGHB horses (and their riders) happy and healthy!
Montana born and raised, Jess has made a career out of doing what he loves most—teaching horses and teaching people. His earlier years were dedicated to starting colts.He later took that colt starting experience to his alma mater, Montana State University, where he taught the Colt Starting Class for several years. Jess continues to take a limited number of colt starting clients, but his primary passion these days is teaching Western horsemanship and training reined cow horses and riders. As an instructor, he sets high expectations of horse and rider—but kindly supports the ups and downs of striving for constant improvement. If you want a deeper connection with your horse, someone to help you reach your goals, and a coach who has your back on good days and bad, you’ll love training with Jess.
