Meet the Horses

Jane Nordstrom Training LLC offers a selection of high quality horses, many of which have “AA” show records and all of which are show ready and show quality. 

Some of our horses are privately owned and are used judiciously for lessons with the permission of their time-stressed owners.  This is a win-win situation; the horses are kept in supervised work while students have higher quality horses to ride in lessons.

Some horses are available for full- or half-lease (on premises lease only).
Woody, aka “My Silver Lining”

Woody is well-known and much beloved in the Northern Virginia horse community.  He has taken numerous riders from just starting out to winning at the A show level, earning to many championships to name in the 2’6” & 3’ divisions.  He is a skilled schoolmaster who can safely teach a beginner to walk, trot, canter and jump; or help a more advanced rider hone their skills.  

He has earned blue ribbons and tri-colors at local shows in hunter divisions and was champion or reserve at HITS Culpepper. Woody has never failed to bring home ribbons, no matter at what level he has shown.

Woody is a 15.3 hand, grey Appendix QH gelding who will never turn down a treat, and who long ago decided life was much easier if he went with the flow.   He is a loving, easy horse to ride and work around.
Jewel, aka “Jersey Girl” 
This appendix quarterhorse mare lives up to her name.  We describe Jewel as a “seeing eye horse for the distance challenged,” as she finds the right spot to jump every time.  Safe, sane and quiet, Jewel is suitable for both children and adults.

Jewel is comfortable and easy to ride, and has been a consistent star in the pleasure and 2’6” hunter divisions as well as a wonderful equitation horse.

Jewel is also 15.3 hands.  She’s a big-bodied chestnut roan with a blaze and one white sock.  She’s a pretty mover with a cute jump and is a barn favorite ride.
Shu-shu, aka “Galeta”  
This wonderful registered Deutche Pferde Zucht mare is sweet, honest, athletic and talented.  She is currently being shown at the “AA” level in the children's jumpers and medals, and has been in the ribbons at every show she has gone to, including Upperville, HITS Culpepper, Lexington and Swan Lake.

With experienced riders, Shu-shu can do 3’6” and up divisions.  She has a textbook jump and beautiful movement coupled with a workmanlike attitude.  Shu-shu has also been competitive at the A shows in the hunter and equitation rings as well.  She is a very classy packer with an auto lead change and forgiving heart.  Shu-Shu is available for full- or half-lease.
