Jaralyn is FEI trainer and competitor, a USDF ‘L’ graduate and recently completed the USEF ‘r’ training program. She has her USDF Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals and Gold Bar for Musical Freestyles and in 2017 earned her CenterlineScores.com 5-star rating. Jaralyn operates her training and sales business, Finesse Dressage LLC, in Maryland from May-December and White Fences, near Wellington, FL from December – May.
Jaralyn believes in a systematic approach to developing horses and riders, based on the training scale of classical dressage. Her clients include riders and horses of all ages and levels. She is available for lessons at Wyndham Oaks, most reliably Tuesdays-Thursdays due to showing and judging commitments on the weekends.
“Team Finesse” typically participates in 8-10 licensed shows and one or two schooling shows per season. Jaralyn is very proud to have had over 20 students earn their USDF Bronze, Silver or Gold medals while in training with Finesse Dressage. Each year, Finesse Dressage has several horses qualified and competing at Regional Championships, and has had several clients and horses compete at USDF National Finals in Kentucky.

She hosts 4-6 clinics/year with these trainers which are open to her clients and the local community.
