Jennifer “Jennie” Brannigan grew up riding in Galena, IL, and became a working student for Allison Springer at age 13 after growing interested in the sport of eventing. When Allison moved on to work for Karen and David O’Connor, Jennie took a position with Natalie Rooney in California. She also spent time working for show jumper Susie Hutchinson and dedicated herself to competing in both eventing and show jumping.

Her next professional move was to Newnan, GA, where she worked for Mike Winter at his Wayfarer Eventing. During that time, she was able to continue gaining experience riding and teaching. When Mike’s wife Emma returned from abroad, Jennie moved to Phillip Dutton’s True Prospect Farm, where she worked as Phillip’s assistant trainer until the autumn of 2013.

She has seen competitive success at the FEI levels across the United States since the start of her career and continues to teach riders of all levels and develop horses to the top of the sport. She currently operates her own Brannigan Eventing, based in Coatesville, PA, and in Wellington, FL, during the winter months.
