HOPE BRANDWEIN, MAGGIE HIGGINBOTHAM & JORDAN INMAN
The Shenanigan Stables Team
Maggie Higginbotham & Jordan Inman - Owners/Trainers
Shenanigan Stables began in 2020 and was founded by Jordan Inman and Maggie Higginbotham. The barn was created to offer a competitive show program that encompasses a family-friendly barn with Christian values and a lot of fun! They both believe that excellence can be attained in their riders through encouragement and consistency. They strive to create a drama-free barn where you can enjoy the fun that the show world has to offer.
Maggie's original background is in the hunter/jumper world, but she has fallen in love with the American Saddlebred and enjoys the "balanced riding" that is taught in Saddleseat. Maggie has an eye for the mechanics of riding and pushes her students to think about the importance of each aid as they ride. Her structure and attention to detail grow riders to think as they ride instead of simply being a passenger.
Jordan grew up showing Saddlebreds in the Texas region, primarily showing in Equitation. She fell in love with American Saddlebreds for their beauty and dynamic personalities. Her passion is teaching riders to use their legs in partnership with their hands to support their horse to perform their best. As a former classroom teacher, she goes into each lesson and training session with an objective in mind. She has an eye for bridle-work and will get you if your pinkies are open!
Hope Brandwein - Instructor
Hope was added to the team this year as the lesson instructor. Hope grew up showing Saddleseat in Missouri and Texas. Hope has a true gift for communicating in a gentle, yet firm way to get the most out of our riders. Hope has a positive attitude and joyful demeanor which ensures your lessons will be a great experience! She also assists Jordan and Maggie in working and training the show horses. Hope is also in charge of our ever-growing Academy program.
