So, without further ado…

Dressage Today is pleased to announce Jennifer Wuorinen and Jenna Arnold as the winners of the 2019 Dressage Today Blogger Contest!

Winner of Adult Amateur Division: Jennifer Wuorinen

Jennifer Wuorinen, of Lunenburg, Massachusetts, is a mom, rider and horse owner who works full time in a technical field. She owns a Drum Horse named Trooper, takes lessons on a Prix St. Georges schoolmaster and writes with a tremendous amount of personality and humor! We laughed out loud reading her entry and we think our readers will enjoy her perspective just as much as we did!
