Lesson Instructor

Jane Monsson

Jane's holistic approach to teaching comes from an extensive and diverse career.  She started riding at the young age of four, in a hunter jumper barn outside of Chicago. Her competitive career started started when she was 7 until she was in her mid teens. She then switched to dressage and fell in love with the physics of equitation. In college she found saddle seat and the rest, as they say, is history. She earned a degree in Education from the university of Illinois, and remained a classroom educator until her retirement in 1989.  Her classroom management style shows through in her approach to her riding lessons as well.  

Jane teaches all our dressage lessons for our adult riders.  Her lessons are very detailed and teaches riders who fully understand their mechanics and fundamentals. Jane is also our resident artist and is generous enough to share her talents with us.
