About Jannike Gray

USDF Gold, Silver & Bronze Medalist


Jannike Gray began riding at the early age of four. Her journey began on various ponies and horses of all breeds, shapes and sizes! At the age of 11, her passion shifted towards dressage where she began competing in local shows. She made her FEI debut at the age of 17, competing at the NAJYRC and winning a team bronze with the Region 8 team. 


Jannike has a passion for all around horsemanship. Not only is the journey about riding and competing, but the development of the relationship between horse and rider on the ground. Combining ground work, cross training and classical dressage has proven to be a successful combination for her horses!


Her education will always remain a priority. She has been fortunate enough to train with fantastic Masters in the industry such as Klaus Balkenhol, Carl Hester, Monica Theodorescu, Jeans Bemelmans, Hubertus Schmidt, David Collins, Sara Vanecek. Heather Mason remains Jannike's coach and mentor that she works with on a regular basis.
