Jayne Ayers has been an FEI 4* dressage judge for over 20 years, and has been judging dressage for the USEF for over 30 years.    She also holds an R license to judge Dressage Sport Horse Breeding classes.  She enjoyed her work as a licensed Eventing judge for about 15 years, but chose to focus exclusively on dressage when she received her FEI license. As a long-time member of the USEF Dressage Committee, she has served on sub-committees for Judge Training, Clinics, Juniors, Young Horses, Rules, Test Writing, and Sport Horse Breeding.  She is currently Chairman of the Dressage Committee.

As a judge and clinician, she has represented the FEI on the World Dressage Challenge Tour and teaching FEI Development Clinics.  In addition to a busy judging schedule in the United States and Canada, she has judged extensively in Central and South America, as well as in Europe.

Jayne enjoys helping others develop their judging skills for dressage and for sport horse breeding.  She has been a member of the USDF L Program Faculty since its inception.  She instructs judge candidates and examines them at all levels for USEF, and has been designated a Mentor Judge for the FEI.

She teaches riders at all levels at her training stable, as well as in clinics throughout the USA, Canada, and other countries.  Horses she has trained and shown, as well as those shown by her students, have won numerous national awards.  She has been long and short-listed for the US Equestrian Team.

She owns a teaching and boarding stable in Wisconsin, with her husband and two children, where they bred Westfalen horses for over 20 years.
