Jane Turner began her riding career when she was six at Carriage Hill Farms in South Florida, a Hunter/Jumper barn that is still going strong today.  She competed in Hunter/Jumper shows as a junior, starting in the Short Stirrup Division, all the way to the Medals and Junior Hunter Division.  These wonderful years provided an unbeatable foundation for a lifetime of riding.  She formed the closest friendships of her life and has the fondest memories of those years.  It has been Jane’s lifelong dream to create this kind of environment for her own students.

During College, Jane began teaching and riding professionally in the Northern Virginia area.  She gained invaluable knowledge from the trainers and horse people she was fortunate enough to work for over the years.  Most of all, she has learned from every student and horse she has had the opportunity to work with.  She continually strives to learn to be a better trainer, through teaching her students, training horses, studying the works of great trainers, and learning from trainers of all disciplines. 


Jane opened the doors to Willowin Farms in 2010.  Since then, Willowin Farms has grown from a one pony operation with a handful of beginners to a full service Equestrian Center with a sturdy herd of school ponies/horses and an amazing team of riders.  Jane has found immense joy in teaching riders of all ages.  She also enjoys providing the best life possible to the horses and ponies she has the good fortune to care for.
