Originally from Maine, Jeffrey Lord a USDF Bronze and Silver Medalist is an accomplished dressage rider and trainer. At an early age Jeffrey was on the backs of these amazing animals learning the language of the horse. Jeffrey had a unique start to riding, his introduction to riding and horses was Vaulting. His first two years of riding were spent on the lunge line jumping on and off the horses, For two years he never sat in a saddle or even held a pair of reins, which proved most valuable in giving him the natural balanced, independent seat he has on the horse today. In 2005 Jeffrey started seriously pursuing his career as a professional Dressage trainer. Jeffrey started his studies at the Trakehner breeding farm Valhalla, from there he studied under many Florida trainers, worked with many different breeds of horses and finally wound up in Wellington, FL working for Jan Brons.
Jeffrey has worked with several well known and top trainers including Rafael Soto,
Henk Van Bergen, Andrea Woodard, Kathy Connelly, Sharon Poulin,ﾠCourtney King-Dye, Lendon Gray, Walter Zettl and many more.
Through a love of horses, over 20 years of hard work, and thousands of hours in the stable, Jeffrey Lord has learned not only to ride these amazing animals, but to open the lines of communication and work in unison with even the most challenging of horses. Jeffrey works in harmony with the horse to create a beautiful picture of horse and rider floating effortlessly across the arena as one. ﾠHe believes that the horse must want to work with the trainer and must never be forced.ﾠ Jeffrey’s passion and natural talent for working with these animals has allowed him to live his dream as a Professional Dressage Trainer.
