Jody Fontanetta is a fourth generation equestrian. Jody’s riding experience spans across many disciplines with dressage being the core of her training. She was a member of the United States Pony Club for many years. Jody has trained and competed on the national circuit in dressage through the FEI levels and participated in the North American Junior Young Rider Program. She earned her bronze and silver medal with the United States Dressage Federation. 

Currently, Jody runs a riding program for all ages with a focus on classical horsemanship and Working Equitation at her farm in Milton, TN. In 2017, she was introduced to Working Equitation and hasn’t looked back. She has earned numerous high point awards through Level 5 in Region 7. Currently Jody is competing at the Advanced level (L6) with her grade gelding, Misty Morning Stash. She is proud to be a forerunner in building interest and support for working equitation in the Middle Tennessee area. 

Jody is a L candidate for the USAWE judge’s program. She loves that working equitation gives classical training a purpose that has been lost in some modern disciplines.

USAWE Logo design by Alexandra Crippen of Crippen Designs.

The logo represents the four trials of Working Equitation and highlights the diversity for which the sport is known in the United States. 

  • The first image depicts a mule, being ridden in Western tack and attire in the Dressage trial.
  • The second image showcases an Iberian horse in traditional Iberian tack and attire performing in the EOH trial.
  • The third image shows a horse of indeterminate breeding and a rider in English tack and attire, competing in the Speed trial.
  • Together, all three riders represent a team competing together in the Cattle trial. Although the cow is not shown directly, the three teammates are working in concert. The image is intended to elicit the feeling of excitement and movement as the team moves their designated cow toward the holding pen to the far right, off the page. (Think of it as a "silent cow", much as the letter "e" at the end of a word is often referred to as "the silent 'e'" in recognition of its existence without being read aloud).
