Jenny Cook

Michigan Equine Trails Representative

with Michigan Trails Advisory Council
Kalamazoo, Michigan

Living in Michigan with its diverse seasons, terrains, and waterways, Jenny Cook has had wonderful opportunities to enjoy nearly every outdoor recreation activity. As an owner and operator of bikes, boats, camping gear, fishing equipment, hiking, horses, hunting equipment, off-road vehicles, skis, and snowmobiles she understands and respects every trail user group and realizes they each have their own goals and priorities.

Jenny is thankful and honored to be appointed and reappointed by the Michigan Governor for two advisory council positions as the Michigan Trails Advisory Council Equestrian Representative (MTAC) and the SW Michigan Equestrian Trails Subcommittee Representative (ETS) where she represents horses and people with horses to all Michigan public land managers and all trail user groups. The MTAC is comprised of representatives from every outdoor recreation activity.

As an educator, Jenny has implemented a “Horse Course” at four middle schools in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Jenny has enjoyed shoreline horseback riding in Florida, Hawaii, Indiana, Michigan, and Mexico and introduced shoreline horseback riding at both Indiana Dunes National Park and the State of Michigan Parks.
It is Jenny ‘s pleasure to help introduce the benefits of horses for people.

Jenny has camped and competed with her horses throughout Michigan and beyond as the National and State of Michigan Competitive Mounted Orienteering Champion Team Member. Jenny has participated in 4H, Pony Club, endurance rides, fox hunts, therapeutic and leisure trails rides. Jenny has witnessed and discovered the health benefits that therapy horses provide for people by volunteering at the Cheff Therapeutic Riding Center in Augusta, Michigan.
