Meet Jules

11959988_10153202101048137_4377551618251320572_nJules has a Bachelors Degree in Psychology and a number of years of experience working as a Social Worker.  She served as a Group Home/Family Support Worker, a Behavior Support Worker for the School Board, and as a Children’s Services Investigator. Over the past thirteen years of her life, she has devoted time to her children, home, and animals.  Through these experiences, she has developed a deep appreciation of the importance of relationships and attachment in life’s journey.  Jules believes that we are constantly learning about ourselves through others, animals, and humans alike.  With Rein Forth Equine, she is excited to combine her two passions: people and horses – providing inspiration to each other in life’s journey.

Jules’s experience with horses stems from a “horse crazy” mentality and over 40 years of western pleasure riding.  She has owned and cared for horses the past 20 years. Throughout this time, Jules has attended numerous horse clinics and received coaching in the areas of Western Riding, Horsemanship, Reining instruction and Cowboy Challenge workshops through numerous trainers including  Trevor Mertes (Horses that Work Equine), Tom Mowery,  Ross Hanson (Ross Hanson Horsemanship), Dan Alliban (Kaliber Equine), & Steve Rother (Rother Horsemanship) where she completed her Level 1, as well as Cowboy Challenge instruction via Jim Anderson.  Jules has also been a participant on the Wild Rose Riders Drill team for 4 years (2 of which she acted as Team Captain).  She continues to grow her equine experience with ongoing education and training – she is looking forward to an upcoming clinic with Tom Maury this Spring 2019.  Jules is a certified Equine Facilitated Wellness Learning Professional and Equine Professional through EFW-Can
