Janie Huot has been working as a professional riding coach/instructor for 10 years., helping private individuals, as well as putting on Confidence Clinics around the area and coaching the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) western show team. However, prior to that, Janie held AQHA Amateur and NRHA Non-Pro cards: AQHA since 1976 and NRHA since 2000. Janie has owned and shown some remarkable horses to : AQHA Top 10 (nationally) Western Riding, 1988 AQHA World Show Qualifier in 6 events and finalist in horsemanship and western riding; multiple MQHA High Point Amateur Awards, winning 50+ All Around AQHA Awards on 4 different horses. In 2000, Janie moved into the world of reining. Showing Talk A Blue Streak, she was the NCRHA 2001 Saddle Winner in the Rookie Division and in 2002, NCRHA Reserve High Point Limited Non-Pro. Janie will tell you, however, that moving out of Amateur/Non-Pro ranks and changing her focus to others and teaching riding technique and confidence on horseback has been the most rewarding experience for her to date.
