Jennifer Monk



Jennifer is our owner, founder and main facilitator for Western Winds Equine Education. From the time she was a little girl, horses have been an important part of her life. She has always been drawn to them and loves working with them every day. She has certificates as a Veterinary Medical Assistant and as a Equine Assited Learning Facilitator. Jen also holds a membership as a part of the St. Johns' Ambulance Pet Therapy Team.


Throughout her life, she has often felt the comfort of being around animals and desires to help others work through fears and gain confidence with people and horses; whether it be for personal growth reasons or to further their education of horsemanship.


Jen has learnt her horsemanship skills from studying Californian Horse and Mule Trainer and clinician Jerry Tindell and his methods of horsemanship. She strives to become a versatile horsewoman able to teach new or experienced equine enthusiasts the basics of horsemanship and give them a solid foundation of the safety and understanding needed for a successful partnership with our four-legged partners.
