Jodie Kelly is the best of all worlds. She has the exuberance and positive attitude of someone just starting out in the sport yet has the experience and knowledge of a seasoned professional. This dressage aficionado has been trained by the best, spending her childhood summers at Anky van Grunsven's barn in Holland. The future couldn’t look any brighter for this USDF Gold Medalist and her extremely lucky clients. Kelly said, “I have an amazing group of clients who are so successful and making a lot of progress. Now it's time to take my riding to the next level, by looking for a top horse.” Now that she has built a successful foundation for her business, she wants to focus on taking her riding for competion to the next level. With Courtney King-Dye as her coach, Jodie will have all the tools she needs to find success in the international arena.
Jodie’s own dressage instruction program includes preparing Junior and Young Rider students for the Festival of Champions and the North American Junior/Young Rider Championships (NAJYRC). With a full barn of clients, superior contact in Europe for finding horses, an active showing, training, and clinic schedule, Jodie knows how to keep the word "fun" in her teaching and showing outlook.
Jodie also works with students of various disciplines besides her strong dressage base, including teaching riders in the show jumping and eventing specialties. She has helped many riders build their hunter base for the HITs Horse Shows and top event riders for International Combined Training competitions.
Jodie also loves to present her Grand Prix Freestyle at special events with her Grand Prix horse and a freestyle she created for bringing awareness to Breast Cancer. With her Grand Prix horse and beautiful choreographed music, she has wowed large crowds at the FSU stadium and special event wine festivals.
