hunter/jumper professional rider
Matthew Jenkins is a dedicated hunter/jumper professional with a variety of exceptional experiences. He became a professional rider/trainer in 2013. He has campaigned at some of the best shows in North America earning top honors in prestigious competitions at USHJA Finals, HITS Ocala, HITS Saugerties, and the Devon Horse Show.
Matthew has ridden most of his life. He competed, mostly as a catch-rider, in the hunters, equitation and medal classes into high school. Riding as a catch-rider helped hone his ability to get to know a horse quickly, and how to deal with a range of equine personalities, challenging problems, and sometimes hidden talents.
Matt enjoys all aspects of the horse business from barn operations to working closely with vets, grooms, and the range of equine health care specialists.
An integral part of the Reinbow's End Farm program, Matthew brings a range of experience in hunters, equitation, medals and jumpers, a passion for learning and teaching. When not in the show ring himself, Matt has great success preparing clients and their horses to bring home the ribbons.
