About Us

Jacob and Lauren Johnson, owners of Downtown Stables LLC, are fulfilling their dream of owning a horse farm. Growing up, both Jacob and Lauren were always surrounded by horses. Together they enjoy attending clinics, going to horse shows, trail rides, and participating in hunter paces. They are a great team and truly complement each other in all their aspirations.

Jacob and Lauren's goal at Downtown Stables is to offer a positive environment for people to achieve goals with their horse and receive the quality care they deserve.

Lauren Johnson specializes in the hunter jumper discipline. Lauren has experience riding, showing, training, and teaching horses and riders of different levels. Lauren has had the opportunity to ride and work with top professionals including George Morris, Judy Richter, Bernie Traurig, Beth Ravinsky, Deborah Brown-Moon, Joyce Daly Northup, and many other knowledgeable professionals.

These experiences allowed Lauren to learn about hunters, jumpers, equitation, dressage, western pleasure and driving. Lauren attributes her success and knowledge to the 350+ horses she has ridden and learning from some of the best.

Lauren believes in expanding her knowledge and always trying harder to be a better horse woman. Lauren continues her education, as she believes there is always something to learn with horses whether it's stable management, riding, horse care, instruction, or training; its important to stay current.

While riding is a huge part of Lauren's passion, teaching others about the sport is equally important to her. Lauren is able to adjust her teaching style to a variety of horses and riders' needs. Lauren believes every rider can improve but the key is unlocking that potential.

Lauren has a very informative, yet enthusiastic teaching style and loves challenging her students. Her focus is safety, correct techniques and having fun!
