JEANNETTE STERNER – TPT STERNER EQUESTRIAN EDUCATION CENTRE
Jeannette Sterner was born and raised in Germany and started at the age of 3 with vaulting. When she turned 6, she started with riding lessons. She moved to Ontario in January 2010 and made it her home.
In Germany she obtained training and schooling. During this time, she had the opportunity to ride under Grand Prix riders and mentors such as: Helen Langenhanenberg (2012 Olympic Dressage Team Silver medalist), Ingrid Klimke (2008 & 2012 Olympic Eventing Team Gold Medalist), Lars Meyer Zu Bexten (German National Show Jumping Team Coach) as well as Sabine Becker and Claudia Graff.
Jeannette is a dressage and jumping coach and has more than 30 years of experience in riding horses from which she spent 15 years as a professional trainer.
Jeannette says “I emphasize the fundamental importance of a proper seat, and the influence and effects this has on the horse, which I have extensively studied through the internationally acclaimed teachings of professor, author, and clinician Eckard Meyners”. “Additionally, I am a qualified equine physiotherapist, allowing me to promote not only the development, but also the health of horse and rider”.
“The greatest happiness on earth is sitting on the back of a horse!” that’s how I see it” says Jeannette.
Jeannette purchased a farm on Leslie Road in Roslin in March 2020 and has been working hard building a world class equestrian centre.
TPT Sterner offers training and lesson boarding programs. The barn stalls are 14ft x 13ft and their deluxe outdoor stalls are 12ft x 14ft with attached sand and grass paddocks for individual turnout.
TPT is very proud to have 2 outdoor sand riding arenas (80’ x 200’ and 120’ x 250’) and 1 grass-jumping ring. As an exciting addition, TPT Sterner has a new indoor arena built last fall, small but pretty 60’ x 120’.
Jeannette offers a customized training program for horse and rider.
Most important for Jeannette is that a rider learns HOW to give the proper aids; WHEN to give the aids and HOW it feels when the horse responds to those aids.
Jeannette concludes by saying, “I think my variety of expertise and equine passion makes TPT Sterner a special place like no other”.
To teach a horse WHAT to do when they are scared is the road to success’!
The Will of a horse is controlled by trust, Not fear.
To Carry a horse in your hand, you need Mutual Respect!
