Jessica Lawlor

Jess Lawler, B.S.
Director of Education

Jess Lawler has been with the High Knoll Team since 2007, and wants to help riders and horses find balance and peace in and out of the saddle. Jess is a USDF Silver Medalist, licensed trainer by the state of Massachusetts, holds a B.S. in Animal Science from the University of New Hampshire, and is a FEI National level Grand Prix competitor. Jess enjoys all aspects of teaching,including working with competitive and recreational riders of all levels in dressage.


Jess comes from a background working with a variety of horses which allows her to create an individualized yet, systematic approach to riding and training using the classic Training Scale. Her goal is to develop knowledgeable riders who care about all aspects of horsemanship, and healthy horses that enjoy their work. Her favorite experiences were getting the opportunity to train in dressage at Escola de Equitacao, in Alcainca, Portugal, and competing FEI dressage in Wellington, FL. Jess is always working to build on her own education, and since 2005 has trained under a USDF Gold, Silver, and Bronze Medalist, audits many clinics, and is currently enrolled in the USDF “L Program”.
