Holly Gellner | Horse Trainer
We are fortunate to have Holly Gellner as our resident trainer at Jackson Valley Ranch. She has been professionally training for 18 years, 15 of which have been in the Monroe, Duvall area. Holly comes from a varied background in the horse world including Morgan, Arabian and Dressage show circuits. She specializes in amateurs and Jr. riders with an emphasis on safety and having fun.
Holly was raised in a horse family, as both of her parents were trainers as well. Her disciplines of choice include Hunter & Western pleasure, Saddle seat & Harness horses. She also gives lessons in entry level dressage (intro-1 level), as well as western dressage. She uses entry level dressage concepts on all of her horses to establish a strong and healthy horse, both mentally and physically. She enjoys taking dressage lessons herself, and finds that it keeps her lesson program fresh and full of new ideas.
Holly also enjoys sharing her knowledge with her family, her husband Scott & 2 children, Isabelle (6), and Lane (4). The horses are a fun way for her family to spend time together doing something they all love. When she's not at JVR, Holly enjoys cooking and spending time working on her family’s small farm just 5 minutes from JVR in Duvall.
