Oklahoma artist, author and horsewoman, Jennifer Cocoma Hustis has spent over 20 years teaching art and horsemanship to all ages. In 2010, Jennifer combined her two passions, creating a small business located in her hometown of Edmond, Oklahoma called Art of Horsemanship LLC. The mission of Art of Horsemanship LLC is to offer a solid foundation in horsemanship and art fundamentals for all ages.
Known for her highly expressive artwork, Jennifer has a Master's Degree from Pratt Institute, NY. She enjoys sharing her artistic talents with all ages. As well as exhibiting and selling her own artwork, Jennifer teaches as an artist in residence, private and semi-private lessons and creates interactive educational art exhibits for museums and galleries. Recently, the artist combined her passions by writing and illustrating children’s books. In 2018, the author published her first book, The Wild Horse Who Loved the Girl. The author/illustrator’s goal is to promote literacy through visual and equine interactive learning.
From a very early age, Jennifer felt a very close connection to horses. This connection drove her to learn from, and assist many, professional and world renowned horsemen and horsewomen. Jennifer believes that working with horses for herself and others, for over 40 years, directly contributed to her successful horsemanship, animal communication and has given her greater self-awareness.
Art of Horsemanship LLC maintains a broad scope of disciplines and age groups. Jennifer’s daughter competes at the National level in Jr. Rodeo (NLBRA), while her clients do everything from pleasure riding to competing in English and Western disciplines. Jennifer currently competes in Working Equitation. After decades of only training horses, in 2018, Jennifer and her Spanish Mustang began competing in Working Equitation. In 2018, they earned a ranking in the top ten from the U.S.A. Confederation of Working Equitation and in the Western Dressage World Championship Show.
Art of Horsemanship LLC looks forward to working with you to achieve your goals in art and horsemanship or both.
