Equestrian Center Team
Jester Park Equestrian Center runs 7-days a week, 365 days a year. Even if we are not having public programming for a day, the horses that live at the center need to be cared for! We have a dedicated and knowledgable staff that makes up the team at JPEC.
Assistant Riding Instructors
The Assistant Riding Instructors (or ARIs) make up a core group of equestrians who are dedicated to the instruction of horsemanship and taking a leadership role in specific programs at JPEC.
Equestrian Center Barn Crew
Our Barn Crew are the backbone of JPEC and we would not be able to operate without their dedicated efforts. They are a passionate group who are out at the barn, rain or shine, hot or cold, to care for the horses that call JPEC home.
A small, by dedicated, group of clerks ensure that all inquiries are handled in a timely and friendly manner. Stop in and say, "Hi!" - they will likely be at the front desk or near by!
