Jenny Hibberd graduated from Florida State University, in 2014, with a Bachelor of Science in Business Management.

Her passion for horses was cultivated at a very young age and consequently, her involvement in the equine industry has been a lifelong pursuit. Growing up in Kentucky, Jenny rode at her aunt’s farm, all the while embracing the equine opportunities of The Bluegrass State.

Following this, Jenny moved to Florida in 2009 to compete. With multiple championships during that winter season, Jenny’s love for top performance horses grew. In 2010, she worked for Flying Colors Farm as a handler for broodmares and stallions. In this position, Jenny learned about the basics of the breeding industry and she played a critical role in breeding season. She then joined the Town and Country Tack Store as a sales associate, which offered her an opportunity to network within the area’s equine industry.

Jenny is thrilled to be a part of Advanced Equine Imaging! She realized sports medicine would be an area of interest in her career path after volunteering as a Veterinary assistant for the Winter hospital in Havana, FL. Jenny is excited to gain the knowledge and hands on experience that is necessary to help heal and maintain performance horses, so they may succeed at the top levels of competition.
