Emily joined Schramm Equestrian as a working student in 2016 and became head groom and barn manager in 2017. She is the glue that holds the team together and a highly accomplished rider in her own right. She produced her Thoroughbred gelding, Martial Arts, from Beginner Novice to CIC* level in one year and is aiming for the Ocala Jockey Club CCI* to cap their 2018 season.

McKenna earned her Bachelor’s degree from Carthage College and owned two horses throughout her college career. After college, she took lessons with an eventing trainer to learn more about dressage, and joined the Horsemasters section of the United States Pony Club. She started participating in her club’s clinics and mini events and got hooked on eventing. McKenna joined the Schramm team in the fall of 2018 as a working student to gain experience training young event horses, including her own OTTB Areion.
Jenni started training with Dom and Jimmie in 2016 after a string of eliminations at starter trials with her water-phobic OTTB mare. That inauspicious start led to her competing Jimmie’s former Advanced partner Bellamy at Training level — an absolutely priceless learning opportunity. Dom and Jimmie helped find her new horse, Derry, and are coaching Jenni towards her CCI* debut in 2019. She is also team photographer and webmaster, and cheers louder than everyone else at shows.
Gail Mink is a mom and 6th grade teacher whose childhood passion for horses and riding was rekindled after a ranch vacation out West 10 years ago. Gail and her OTTB Trebuchet have been partners since she acquired him as a 5-year-old in 2012. She has been in training with Dom and Jimmie since 2016 and events at the lower levels just for fun. Whether traveling to Ocala for winter training or to Bromont to help groom, she loves learning from, helping out, and cheering on her Schramm fam every chance she gets.
