Jenna, In Your Dreams, & SuperNova Mother of Mares: Jenna S. Nuth

Founder of Reigning Phoenix & Mother of Mares, Nuth has grown up around horses and has been trailering since the days of having her learner’s permit. Not only has she structured and run multiple horse-back riding summer camps that both the children, as well as the volunteer camp counselors, have loved returning to, but Nuth is also planning to offer clinic & coaching opportunities in the future involving natural horsemanship, bareback & free riding, as well as Jumpers. While the typical Hunter/Jumper/Equitation world is much of Nuth’s experience both in competition and coaching, she continues to undertake training and enjoying other disciplines and adventures including eventing, fox hunting, trails & obstacles, beach riding, and whatever opportunity arises (mounted archery and endurance races are next on her list).

Jenna S. Nuth

Nuth has competed in the National Capital Equitation League (NCEL), the Inter-School Horse Show Series (ISHS), the Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA), the Black-Eyed Susan Horse Show Series (BEST), and the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) for lower-level show leagues (competed up to 3’6” Jumpers) up through college, and she has also had her personal horses been invited to compete in the Thoroughbred Alliance Show Series and the Colonial Classic Horse Show.

While Nuth is aspiring to be more active in USEF and USHJA competitions in the future, as well as to attend more cross-country events, endurance races, and fox hunting outings, she is quite satisfied and plenty busy balancing work as a software engineer, her life with friends and family, and her horses’ care & training.

With her experience as an everyday horse owner and rider for over a decade, Nuth is putting that wisdom into text and is currently working on final revisions for the Happy Horse Handbook guides. These guides are tailored to the everyday horse owners as well as horse riders in order to provide a first-stop reference for many questions across a variety of topics.

In addition to the Happy Horse Handbook guides, Nuth is also inspiring everyday equestrians to problem-solve, build, and create through Horse Mom Hacks with barn hacks, DIY projects, and equestrian product reviews. Nuth also works to better represent bareback and tackless riding as Bareback Rider USA (Facebook & Instagram & YouTube), alongside promoting different equestrian activities such as glow nights, mounted games, mounted archery, and jousting.

Nuth is working to soon offer bareback clinics and host shows allowing bareback riding in the future!

"I've known Jenna since we were school age and taking lessons at the same barn. When we started to get a little older, she was ever so kind to invite me to her house to ride her orses. Since that point, I've seen her as the big sister I never had. I could only afford lessons once a week, but with Jenna's willingness to let me come over and ride pretty much whenever I could, the little horse girl in me was ecstatic and grateful. Jenna's dedication to her horses and compassion towards other riders has continued to shine through over the years I've known her. She's given me many opportunities in the horse world including but not limited to: leasing RPE Celtic Class and showing her for multiple seasons in a row, going on countless adventures, and overall just being an excellent mentor and friend. I can't wait to see how Reigning Phoenix Equestrian continues to grow under her guidance."

"Horses are great teachers. They teach us compassion, communication, and so much more. Knowing the horses at RPE has affected my life very deeply. To know animals that have such great caretakers and riders that they feel comfortable expressing themselves - their pain, their joy - is such a wonderful thing. And Jenna Nuth is just as honest and kind as her horses. Together, her and the horses create a barn atmosphere of openness and education, because Jenna is the kind of leader that is always learning. Dreamer, Chloe, Mocha and Silver all have special places in my heart for teaching me different skills and being the unique individuals they are. I will forever be happy to be associated with them, Jenna, and RPE."

"I've been riding with RPE for about 2 years now. I was on the hunt for a lease horse when I happened to come across a lease ad for one of the RPE horses. When I first started riding with Jenna I was a very unconfident rider but luckily I had found the perfect place to help boost that confidence. As I started coming out to the barn more and more I learned that there is so much more to horseback riding than just riding. I've learned so much, like how to properly take care of a horse, and how to take care of a barn. Over the past 2 years I've created the best barn family I could possibly ask for as I and many others like to say RPE is my happy place. We’ve gone on so many fun adventures from horse swims to trail rides, even to the Pimlico racetrack. Jenna and her horses have taught me so many new things and different ways of doing things. The RPE horses are all so different and have taught me lots of things they’re all great confidence boosters for different things. Though I'm not able to ride as often as I would like, I know that I'll always have a great barn family and horses to come back to when i'm able to ride."

"Ten years ago when I was a freshman at Seton, it was by a stroke of luck and a hint of interest that I found myself on the ESHS Equestrian club. Nearly instantly I was captivated by the beauty of horses and the sport of riding them. The highly personal hands-on experience with not only riding, but also tacking and caring for the horses provided a genuine and passionate equestrian experience that I was unable to find at any other lesson stable.

I've recently been blessed with a chance to return to the stables with Jenna to learn the in-depth art of equestrian care and riding. It has been an incredible opportunity that I am so grateful for!"

“I worked with Dreamer as a young rider and fell in love with her. She taught me so much about myself as a rider and a person. I have never felt so connected to a horse in my life. Riding with Jenna at RPE has not only reunited me with Dreamer after a few years apart, but it has expanded my knowledge on caring for horses, different styles of riding, home-barn management, and my favorite: groundwork!

I am now a junior in college and riding at RPE in the summer is one of the things I look forward to during the school year. I am forever grateful for what I’ve learned from both Dreamer and Jenna and I look forward to making more memories :) "
