About Jimmy Wray
Jimmy Wray is a professional horseman with more than 40 years experience buying, selling, training and showing both horses and ponies.
Jimmy specializes in green horses and often retrains ex-racehorses. Jimmy states, “I’ve bought a lot of stallions and gelded them to make show horses.” Several of these horses have made it into the top ranks of show jumping including Bold Pisces who competed successfully at the Grand Prix level. Here’s Jimmy’s training philosophy in his own words, “I like to get a horse really soft and balanced to the jumps. The horses need to be really relaxed to get the best jump out of them. When they’re soft and relaxed, they can just rock back and fire off the ground. Then they’re jumping really well.”
Jimmy has also successfully worked to bring ex-racehorses to the hunter ring. He once purchased a three year-old that later became AHSA horse of the year.
Jimmy is currently working with several riders training them and their mounts for both the hunter and jumper show rings. Several of his students have made it to the Grand Prix level already.
