Local Rider Helps OSU “Rein” In National Championship

Posted on: 6:49 pm, June 5, 2013, by , updated on: 12:49pm, June 7, 2013

MOSCOW — Reining is a unique sport in which a rider guides a horse through a precise pattern of maneuvers in a western riding competition.

The Double J Ranch in Moscow, PA is home to the reining industry three time world champion, Jenna Blumer.

Riding since the age of two, 21-year-old, Jenna has a special connection with her championship horses, something that can’t be taught.

A winning reiner can get the horse to spin, stop and display specific maneuvers in a coordinated fashion.  As a senior at Oklahoma State University, Jenna had the highest scoring average at the national championship, an honor the cowgirls equestrian team took home.

Ariel Hug came to Double J Ranch as a teenager, and is now a full time championship trainer of the horses.

A world champion trainer and rider, both are on their way to winning many more titles.
