When it comes to protecting my horses’ legs, I take this job extremely seriously! I have always sought out Veredus products for my horses because they are simply the best. Their XC boots are lightweight and flexible and do an amazing job protecting my horse, while not rubbing them. I don't think it's a surprise that you see Veredus' Carbon Gels on numerous win pictures no matter the discipline! Being a part of their team is something I really value, and they support me as much as their boots support my horses’ legs!
Jennie Brannigan grew up in Galena, Illinois, originally riding a variety of horses under the instruction of Jane McGirk. Jennie became interested in Eventing at age 13 when she became a working student for Allison Springer. Later, Jennie worked for acclaimed show jumper Susie Hutchinson, where she developed as a rider and a horsewoman while she improved her show jumping skills under the watchful eye of one of show jumping’s greats.
When Mike Winter sent Jennie a text message asking if she would like to work for him while his wife Emma was in England, Jennie jumped at the opportunity to follow her eventing dreams. Jennie then went on to work and ride for Olympian Phillip Dutton at True Prospect Farm, where she was the assistant trainer until November of 2013. It was here that Jennie built her business from the ground up and made a name for herself as a trainer, rider, and coach. She is now enjoying growing her own business, Brannigan Eventing, out of Wiseguy’s Farm in West Grove, Pennsylvania.
Jennie was the 2014 10th Ranked Rider of the Year and Cambalda (Ping) was the 2014 10th Ranked Horse of the Year. In 2015, Jennie and Ping had a tremendous year winning both The Fork CIC3* and Great Meadow CIC3* along with a 2nd place finish at the Richland Park CIC3*. Together they were the the traveling reserve for the U.S. Team at the 2015 Pan American Games. In 2015, Jennie was the USEA’s 13th Overall Rider.
She has her sights set on representing the United States in the near future and hopes to earn an Olympic medal for her country. In the meantime, Jennie is bringing other talented stars up the eventing ranks, as well as helping students and horses build strong fundamentals. In addition to working and training out of Wiseguy’s Farm, Jennie is enjoying being an exercise rider at Fair Hill Training Center and Vintage Farm for Michael Matz.
