Facility Manager & Standardbred Trainer
Standardbred Special Report
Jennifer Daniels grew up riding and showing hunter/jumpers in western New York. Her interest in Standardbred racing first began while working for a track veterinarian on the Buffalo/Batavia circuit, where she met her husband, Gray, a fourth generation harness horseman. Since then she has successfully managed to remain involved in both the riding and racing world. In addition to running her own training stable, Jennifer spent nearly eight years working for the US Trotting Association in a regulatory capacity. Time well spent, it provided an unparalleled level of access to the inner workings of racing and its participants.
No stranger to off the track horses, Jennifer already has successfully transitioned both Standardbred and Thoroughbred racehorses prior to starting for New Vocations. Currently, her Laurelville, Ohio facility focuses on sport horse training. She has a strong desire to see racehorses succeed in second careers, and believes that the horse community hasn’t yet fully realized the many outstanding virtues of the Standardbred riding horse. She graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Agriculture from The Ohio State University.
