Jutta Bohnenstengel began her life-long equestrian avocation in 1978, at the age of 10, when she first rode a horse. Before departing Germany for the United States at the age of 19, Jutta had already taken part in 150 dressage and show-jumping competitions, winning around 70 competitions.
Landed on American shores and during her first 3 years in Florida, Jutta furthered her studies under the professional German Olympic dressage champion, Eva-Maria Stoebe. Later, she traveled to Spain where she spent a year breaking in horses as well as working with special needs children and teenagers using horse riding as a course of therapy.
In 1992, she attained the professional accreditation of "Reitwart," graduating as a riding instructor from the distinguished Landes-Reit-und-Fahrschule Rheinland Wuelfrauth, a leading equestrian school in Germany. The following year, she received her silver "reitabzeichen," while working privately instructing a Spanish noblewoman. Jutta's duties in Spain included showing horses and parading them in various dressage competitions, as well as being the private riding instructor for a noble family.
During the next 7 years Jutta returned to the USA, where she worked as a horse trainer, preparing young horses for competition while working as a riding instructor and assistant manager at Stoebe Dressage Stables in Florida. She followed this by managing Kestrel Farms in Harbor Springs, Michigan, as well as serving as Head Coach at Bay Harbour Equestrian Club, also in Michigan.
Jutta has also participated in a number of horse training seminars with experts such as Monty Roberts, John Lyons and Buck Brannaman, an experience that then enabled her to work with traumatized horses.
Before coming to Bali, Jutta was invited to Namibia in 2008 for s short assignment breaking wild horses.
Since April 2009, Jutta has been in Bali working at The Umalas Equestrian Resort as horse trainer, private horse trainer as well as managing the equestrian center. Her duties in Bali include training the Resorts' horses; training privately-stabled horses, teaching children and adults' dressage, providing show-jumping lessons, and organizing special events such as children's camps and vaulting classes.
Jutta looks forward to welcoming people to The Umalas Equestrian Resort where she will introduce visitors to her friends, both of the two and four-legged variety.
