JEAN LEWIS
RIDING INSTRUCTOR

My name is Jean Lewis and I was raised on a farm in rural Michigan. I have always loved horses. For the last 16 years I have had the pleasure of being actively involved in the horse community here in the Tri-Cities. I have been a volunteer for one of the local 4-H equestrian clubs, participated in the District 5 Mighty Columbia Washington High School Equestrian Team, held the position of point chairmen for District 5 for 5 years and now I sit on the board of the Franklin Country Saddle Club. I enjoy pleasure riding, especially in the mountains. I have tried to compete in the sport of Reining, however that was not something my horse Trooper enjoyed so now we trail ride with family and friends.

I have been an instructor for TROT for the last 2 years. The ability to bring the joy of horseback riding to those who would otherwise not have the opportunity is very rewarding for me. The horses bring out the best in our riders. It provides them with freedom, a way to gain confidence, and for many a way to gain the core strength they need to perform daily activities.
