Lucie Herendeen has over 30 years of riding, teaching and training experience and is a USHJA Certified Trainer. She has trained and shown horses from the pre-green divisions to the the Grand Prix jumpers and has been involved in the development of horses and riders that have competed successfully all over the United States. She currently represents the state of Oklahoma and Zone 7 on the USHJA Zone 7 Jumper Committee.
As a teacher, she enjoys working with riders of all levels. Her approach prioritizes classical principles, good horsemanship and dedicated practice. She is passionate that her students learn the skills to become well rounded horsemen and she believes that these skills carry over into life outside of the horse show world.
The horses in Lucie's care benefit from an individualized program that is customized and includes constant monitoring of nutrition, veterinary care, shoeing, conditioning and a progressive building of skills in a logical and systematic way that produces horses that are sound, safe and happy partners for her riders.
