Meet our Instructors
Jamie Novak is the owner and full-time professional
trainer and instructor at Novak Equine Center. With more than 25 years of experience with horses, she specializes in
training performance horses in the areas of Western Pleasure, Showmanship and Hunter Under Saddle. She has been successfully
competing as a professional for many years at the AQHA level and has several Minnesota and North Dakota futurity wins.
Jamie focuses on her
clients needs and goals through helping them focus on their goals and develop their riding skills and techniques. Her
training program is intense. The horses are athletes and are treated as such. She feels the only way for a horse
to be comfortable is to have it do what the horse was made to do both mentally and physically. She likes to keep their
minds fresh and looking forward to doing their job versus forcing a square peg into a round hole. Therefore, many maneuvers
and disciplines are incorporated into the training program to keep diversity in the day-to-day riding. This promotes greater
agility and performance from the horse so they can be at their optimal presentation for the show days.
Please inquire with Jamie regarding pricing and scheduling of training or lessons.
