Jennifer Gates, owner of Evergate Stables and one of the United States’ top up-and-coming U25 riders, has announced a new training partnership with Harrie Smolders (NED), currently ranked no. one in the world on the Longines Rankings. 

Gates, who graduated from Stanford University in June, will focus full-time on her riding before entering medical school. Her plans for the coming year include competing in several grand prix events on the Global Champions Tour and other high-level show jumping competitions. Gates is excited to elevate her competition through this new partnership with Smolders.

“Harrie is incredibly talented, and I’m looking forward to training with him. It’s an exciting time for me to be graduating from college and shifting my focus to training and competing full-time this year,” said Gates in a press release. “Harrie is not only a world-class competitor with an unparalleled ability to shape great riders, but also a wonderful horseman. I am eager to learn everything I can from him.”

“I’m looking forward to working with Jennifer to help channel her ambition, passion, and work ethic to reach the highest level in our sport,” said Smolders. “It’s going to be a fun year and I’m excited to see the success she achieves as she focuses full-time on riding."
