Jennifer (McCallum) Fulton seemed to be born with a passion for horses. Many little girls dream of having a pony, only to abandon that dream in favor of boys and friends during their teenage years, yet Jennifer's passion for horses never waned. She knew early on all she ever wanted to do was work with horses.
She began riding at a young age at Talland II Equestrian Center, at the time a world renowned BHS & ABRS approved equestrian center offering top class tuition in dressage, show jumping, and cross country, under international dressage rider and trainer Pammy Hutton, FBHS and her husband Brian Hutton, BHSI.
Jennifer attended Sweet Briar College in Virginia; an institution known not only for outstanding academics, but also for its nationally renowned riding program. During that time, she continued to compete at Three Day Events.
After graduation from college, Jennifer retired her eventer's hat and began to ride show hunters under Col.Don Nance and Donna Gittings. During this period of her equestrian career, Jennifer and her mentors found she had a talent for the "challenging" horses. Jennifer could- and would- ride any horse that came her way.
Somehow, word got out that Jennifer had a knack for "fixing" problem horses. Utilizing nutrition, holistic healing, environment and the Classical Method of Dressage, Jennifer is able to successfully heal horses with not only physical trauma, but psychological trauma, as well. Jennifer's focus is the whole horse. Riding challenging horses paved the way to where Jennifer is today: an Equine Wellness Specialist.
Jennifer has attended dozens of clinics with the legendary Buck Brannaman, Mark Rashid, Pat Parelli, Brent Graef, "Dressage, Naturally" founder, Karen Rolf, Olympian Laura Graves, among others. Jennifer studied countless hours with dressage masters Holly Hansen, Eddo Hoekstra, Walter Zetl, and Stephanie Grant Millham, a longtime student of Nuno Oliveira. Jennifer continues to study with Julia Wolffe, a BHS and USDF certified instructor.
Today Jennifer Fulton considers enjoying such a long period of learning, with many different horses and challenges, as being one of her great strengths. This is why she places great emphasis on continuity at her own farm.
