Building Strong Equine Relationships:
Unlocking Success Outside the Turn

In the realm of horsemanship, the foundation of a strong connection is laid from the very beginning. Who doesn’t aspire to cultivate a deep and meaningful relationship with their equine companions? The journey starts the moment we lead our horses, the way we provide care for them, and the interactions that shape our daily routines. These seemingly simple actions are the keystones to establishing a harmonious bond.
With over two decades dedicated to refining the art of nurturing exceptional barrel horses, I’ve come to understand that the true champions emerge beyond the turn. The essence of success is built upon principles that transcend the conventional track.
Amidst the world of barrel racing, a fresh perspective is in order – an approach rooted in “outside the turn logic.” Rather than inundating you with run-of-the-mill drills designed to fit a mold, my intention is to provide a sanctuary of wisdom. This space is meticulously crafted to be a wellspring of intuitive horsemanship, embracing the holistic essence of horsemanship.
Embarking on a journey that takes you from tranquil pastures to the triumphant pay-windows, all while nurturing a content and well-rounded horse – that’s my commitment. An understanding of equine psychology serves as the cornerstone for building a communication bridge that leads to success in your chosen equestrian discipline. Whether it’s the exhilaration of barrel racing, the precision of calf roping, the serenity of trail riding, or the demands of ranch work, the fundamental principles remain unchanged. Over the course of three decades encompassing both equine and human training, one pivotal truth has emerged – empathy for the horse always gets you a win.
I’ll do my best to take you from the pasture to the pay-window while building a happy, whole horse.

Challenging Partners

Should you find yourself grappling with a challenging equine partner, I’ll happily guide you through the process. My experience spans nearly twenty years of helping discouraged riders and troubled horses. Remember, there is always a pathway to transformation. The troubled horse often stems from demands that they don’t understand. My mission is to empower you with the tools to rekindle their spirit, crafting a foundation of safety, partnership, and cooperation.

So, let’s journey “outside the turn” and embark on a quest to forge solid, empathetic relationships with our equine companions. Will you join me on this journey towards honing the art of developing an extraordinary barrel horse? I invite you to delve into the reservoir of insights I’ve garnered through trials, triumphs, and invaluable experiences.

Now, let’s get outside the turn and build a relationship with our horses, shall we?

Won’t you join me on my journey to build a better barrel horse?

Our Team

Meet Jenn Zeller

I got my first horse when I was 11. That was all she wrote. From 4H to college rodeos, from open barrel races to PRCA rodeos, I’ve done and am still doing it all — as much as my checkbook will allow. 

I gave my first riding lessons at age 16; Made my living training horses and students by the time I was in my late 20s. 

My goal with this membership is to share with you the things I learned the hard way. The things I learned with blood, sweat, a lot of tears and more anxiety than one would care to take on in a lifetime. 

Not only have I survived all of the above I’ve now arrived in a place where I’m thriving. Bring me the troubled horses; I’ll show you it can be done.  Because I believe it can. I believe in myself. I believe in the horse. 

My horsemanship style and philosophy is derived from decades of riding in multiple disciplines, riding for different trainers, riding for the public, and riding with different clinicians such as Curt Pate, and Buck Brannaman and my partner, Zach Ducheneaux. I’ve watched them take horses from where they are that day and improve them.

Let me help you take your horse from where they are right now to where you want to be.

My daughter rode with Jenn very early in her riding career. Jenn took the saddle off, and had her ride bareback for a while to learn balance and find her seat. That balance has been crucial in her success in Reined Cowhorse, even leading to a World Championship.

It doesn’t matter if you have been riding for many years or if you are a beginner, Jenn can help and you will always learn something. You will leave feeling like a better rider. Thanks Jenn for taking such good care of my horse while I was gone!! Can’t wait to ride with you again.

I’m a competitor that started later in life, with a horse that’s an underdog, and a disability. Jenn has given me tools that give me more confidence in myself and my horse. I’m happy to have a coach in my corner that makes me feel like they’re invested in my success.
