We are pleased to welcome Jen Byvelds to the Circle J team! 

With a Diploma in both Agriculture and Recreation, working with horses and their riders is her passion. She grew up in the hunter/jumper world and with her local pony club was the beginning of a lifelong addiction. Throughout high school she worked as a trail guide and worked along side of natural horsemanship instructors. Today she still represents Ottawa's natural horsemanship students by showcasing in horselovers weekends at Upper canada village. 

Her first year college she was introduced to Polo where she fell in love with the concept of a team sport. She was made captain of Canada's only intercollegiate Polo Team for two years, then continued to coach the team as head coach after graduating, as well as becoming a  Polo clinician and running camps and lessons for the recreational riders.

This year Jen and her horse Beau have been focusing on reining, and completing our western instructors certificate with the OEF.


A few words from Jen; "I am so excited to be welcomed to the Circle J Family and hope to get lots of fun things going this summer such as a Beginner Polo league, and a recreational drill team!"
