Training RoR Midlands - Clinic with Jennie Sharpe

21st May, 2023

RoR Midlands are pleased to bring you a clinic with Jennie Sharpe, also well known as JK Equestrian. This will take place at her great home venue on Sunday 19th March 2023. Jennie has a lot of experience working with riders lacking in confidence both in themselves and whilst riding. She understands how a lack of confidence can affect the horse you are working with, a skill which is exceptionally beneficial for many of our former racehorses.

Jennie is providing lessons at her home venue, which is a well equipped centre based at East Haddon, Northamptonshire.

You will be able to talk through with Jennie about what you want from your lesson, progressing at your pace from the ground, over poles, building up to some grid work if that's what you would prefer. Jennie is a skilled and successful show jumper and coach and can regularly be seen across the UK at major show jumping events.

If you haven’t yet heard about Jennie yet, who has featured in several equine publications including Horse & Hound, here is her instruction in her own words.

"On 25th December 2018 I suffered a life changing injury and was diagnosed with Couda Equina Syndrome. I had major emergency spinal surgery, my L5/S1 collapsed and crushed my nerve Canal, leaving me with permanent damage and a new disability I had to come to terms with, I was told I’d never walk again unaided and definitely wouldn’t ride again.

I have been left with permanent numbness in my right leg and foot, and no bladder and bowel function. I have since had further spinal surgery in the last 12 months! I am also awaiting my colostomy bag surgery which should be done before summer 2022.

I completely lost my nerve and thought my career was over. I have suffered hugely with my mental health and confidence and the feeling of not being good enough for the professional circuit anymore.

Luckily with a fantastic support team around me and sheer determination I got back on board, and I am back competing!

Life is hard, I’m a firm believer in being kind, working hard and supporting everyone, no matter what level they maybe. I have over 100 5* reviews and recommendations and absolutely LOVE coaching. I am UKCC Level 2 British Show jumping qualified for coaching, first aid trained, DBS checked and trained in safeguarding."

We look forward to welcoming you to another collaboration between RoR Midlands and JK Equestrian.
