Our Story

Jennifer Bull is a graduate of the WDAA Train The Trainers programKari Wegenke is a certified ARIA Instructor

At LongShot Farm, we believe in taking the time it takes in developing both horse and rider.  Whether you choose to pursue reining, dressage, pleasure, ranch, games, or trail, we strive to help you teach your horse to carry himself properly to enhance physical health and wellness.  Our variety of training and lesson options promote both physical and mental health for a positive partnership between horse and rider.  At LongShot Farm, we strongly believe in combining Classical Principles with traditional Western Horsemanship to create safe, sound, pleasurable, and versatile horses.  Working with concepts presented in the Classical Training Scale can improve every horse, no matter it's profession or pedigree.


​In 2023 LongShot Farm relocated to Red Rock Stables in Eau Claire, WI. This was an amazing Full Circle move for us.  Both Kari and I are Eau Claire area natives, and we are beyond grateful for the opportunity to bring our program to the Chippewa Valley.  Thank you Jan and the entire Red Rock family for your continued parnership!  - Jenni
