Five Oak Farms offers superior instruction for riders of all levels, from beginners to those competing in the Grand Prix ring. Our head trainer, Jeri Lou Paul, has been a horsewoman her entire life. Growing up at her parents' riding school in Virginia, Jeri Lou trained with such legends as Joe Fargis and Conrad Holmfeld. She rode and trained in Europe and later owned Port-O-Call Farm, a hunter/jumper barn in West Palm Beach, Florida, for many years. Jeri Lou also has competed in many Grand Prix, winning the Virginia Governor's Cup on a horse named First Serve. She trains our resident horses and provides lessons to our boarders as well as visiting clients on a haul-in basis. In addition, Jeri Lou is well known for her ability to create horse/rider combinations that lead to happy memories and success in the show ring.
Jenifer Warren is the barn owner, along with her husband, Eric Bailey, and also teaches the novice lessons at Five Oak Farms. A lifelong rider and successful competitor in the amateur ranks, Jenifer introduces students to hunt seat equitation and shepherds them through low-level jumping. She maintains a host of high quality schooling mounts for her clients and offers riders the ability to enjoy their first horse show experience at local events. Jenifer also offers horse camp for several weeks during the summer.
