Endurance World Heather Reynolds and Jeremy Reynolds. Heather approaching the end.Biography

I (Heather) started endurance riding when I was 11. No one in my family is into horses but there was a local endurance rider, Maryben Stover who took me in and taught me about riding and endurance. I now have over 20,000 miles of competition and have raced over 80 different mounts. My husband Jeremy and I ride and train together 24/7. We are fortunate to do horses as a full-time passion. We train horses, coach riders, breed horses, race flat track Arabians and Jeremy is also a farrier.
He got into endurance through an ad to Condition endurance horses when he was in college. We met at his second endurance ride. Jeremy has close to 13,000 miles of competition on over 70 mounts.

Notable achievements / palmares

Heather Reynolds won the Pan American games in 2001, and was the silver medallist at the North American Championship in 2003, she was on the USA Endurance World Championship team in 2002, 2010, 2012 and 2014.
She won the Tevis Cup in 2003 and 2014 and the Haggin Cup (Tevis Best Condition) in 1999 and 2003. It is very rare to win both cups in the same year. In 2003 her horse was the 5th horse in 49 years to win both cups.
She has also won multiple National Championships.

Both double cups, Tevis and Haggin Cup winners.

When did you start riding?

Jeremy started riding in high school working at a dude string and also fox hunting and working with carriage horses. Heather really started riding when she was 11 with Maryben. Prior to that she would rent an occasional horse by the hour. Riding horses is not something that runs in the family.

Why horses?

Horses give a sense of freedom as well as being amazingly fun to spend time with. There are the highest of highs and lowest of lows in endurance and it keeps you trying to improve.

We love traveling and seeing new places and getting to ride in beautiful places that you would never get to see otherwise, although Jeremy has done 100 mile ultra runs without his horse!
So, he would be able to see these sights on foot!

Own horses or ride for somebody else?

We ride and train our own horses mostly but we do occasionally race a client’s horse as well.

What else do you enjoy?

We enjoy trail running and hiking, movies, traveling and spending time with friends and family.
