Lori Gingrich – Quater Horse Trainer

Horse’s have been my passion my whole life and my livelihood for over 30 years. I have trained and shown Quarter and Paint horses on a national level.  For the past 20 years I have focused mostly in the Quarter Horse Industry.  I was also an instructor at the University of Findlay specializing in teaching the western pleasure to juniors and seniors and helped with beginner freshman.

I am a self-employed horse trainer specializing in western pleasure and hunter under saddle horses along with guiding youth and amateurs in the all around events.  I have trained and guided horses and non-pros to World Champion Wins, All American Quarter Horse Congress Wins (including two wins and several top ten placing’s in 2014) NSBA Wins and several Futurity Wins.  I hold my AQHA, NSBA, and PtHA judges cards and have had the privilege to judge some prestigious shows such as The Tom Powers Futurity, Southern Bell Futurity, and Pinto Horse Congress to name a few.

I moved my business to Irongate Equestrian Center in September 2014.  One of my great clients/friend, Tera Gore, from G and G Feed and Supply in Mount Vernon, Ohio, leases part of the facility where I have 24 training horses.  I have several outstanding experienced staff that work with me.  Services offered under my guidance are boarding & training, lessons, showing and sales.  We also offer the following services for any breed of horse: rehab injured horses, conditioning horse for sales, ground work, ect.
