Our Trainer

Waters Edge Farm's owner and trainer, Breann Jencka, has over 15 years experience as a professional rider and trainer.  Breann received her Bachelor's degree in Equine Studies from Virginia Intermont College in 2004. While in college she was fortunate to train with top notch professionals Eddie Federwisch, Sue Glover, and Amy Sherrick.  Upon graduation Breann moved to Charlotte to begin her professional career and she has been coaching riders in the area ever since.  Breann has extensive experience in training both horse and rider in hunters, equitation, and jumpers.  Her riders have been very successful both on local circuits and USEF rated shows.  Many of Breann's students have qualified for PSJ, BRHJA and NCHJA equitation finals as well as receiving year end awards in the hunters, jumpers, and equitation for BRHJA, NCHJA, SCHJA, and PSJ.  Breann has also been an active IEA coach since 2015. IEA Riders Breann has coached have qualified for both Region and Zone finals. Breann enjoys working with riders of all ages and skill levels and loves to see her riders accomplish their goals.  She focuses her lessons on learning in a safe and patient environment.

Lessons

Waters Edge Farm offers lessons for riders in the hunter/jumper discipline and lessons are available for beginning through advanced riders. Breann includes flatwork, lunge line work, gymnastic exercises, and jumping course work into her lessons to ensure horses and riders are as well rounded as possible.  Riders are encouraged to set goals for riding and showing and lessons are tailored for each rider to work toward achieving those goals. Riders wanting to work toward their showing goals are encouraged to lesson at least twice per week.

Our riding facilities include a 100x170 outdoor arena, a 100x200 jumping arena with full course of show quality jumps, and an indoor arena perfect for rainy days.  

Don't have your own horse?  We have four quality lesson horses to learn from, each with their own tack and supplies. We also offer leases on our lesson horses, please contact us for more information.

At Waters Edge Farm we focus on giving quality lessons, therefore we only do private or small group (up to 4 riders) lessons.
