Johanne & Francis
JF Stables is owned and operated by Johanne & Francis, who relocated from the east coast of Canada to Detroit Lakes in 2008.
Francis (a recreational rider) and Johanne (a keen competitor), sought to provide an affordable facility for year round riding, accessible to all disciplines of rider.
Johanne enjoys Dressage, Eventing & Show Jumping. Francis enjoys the occasional trail ride on his trusty steed "Thunder".

Profile coming soon!
Jennifer (Jennie) Schroeer has been working at our facility since 2013 and we are delighted to have her on our team!
Jennie is responsible for the day-to-day care of the horses and the running of the barn. She is our "man on the ground" who makes sure the horses are brought in, cared for, and fed their daily supplements before being brought back to their freshly cleaned stalls.
She specializes in natural horsemanship and is available for starting and training horses. With some 14 years experience, she also offers retraining for your horse.
Jennie gives instruction in western riding, and her laid-back attitude makes learning to ride (or improving your skills) a relaxed and fun experience.
Contact Us today if you're interested in taking an English riding lesson with Dominic!
Dominic Horne recently starting instructing at JF Stables, and we are thrilled to welcome him to our team!
He teaches English riding lessons, specializing in jumping and dressage.
Dominic grew up around and worked with horses his whole life, and even trained under Derek McConnell ("World Cup eventing representative for Ireland!") to improve his own jumping skills!
He brings considerable talent and expertise to JF Stables, and we are lucky to have him!
We are so excited to introduce to you some of the hardworking individuals we are proud to call our team!
Every single member of our team is vital to the success of JF Stables. Because our employees are responsible for the care and wellbeing of our horses, we have carefully chosen those who we feel represent the spirit of J&F Stables and will do their job in a way that's best for the animals. We have gone to great lengths to find the hardworking, animal-loving, committed, driven, caring, people whose experiences and skill sets produce a talented, well-rounded, drama-free, and complementary team.
