Juliette the Horse Trainer
Juliette is a 22-year-old horse trainer based out of Redmond, Washington. She specializes in dressage, vaulting and liberty training. She has dedicated the past 6 years training horses and people to better understand each other through gentle training methods and liberty work. She was recently touring in Asia as a rider and performer on the show Cavalia. She performed in many different acts including, Roman Riding, carousel and the six Arabian Liberty act. Her horse, Zamando, is a 15-year-old Lusitano gelding and they’ve been together for 4 years. She began doing liberty work with him because he is partially blind and suffered from severe anxiety when ridden. Over the past three years his confidence and personality have bloomed into the horse you can see today.
Juliette will be performing on all three fair days at the Rodeo Grandstand: 5:45pm on Friday and Saturday, and 1:15pm on Sunday. You can find her on social media via Facebook at JC Horse Training. You can also click here to get a sneak peak of Juliette and Zamando!
