Meet the Horses

A big part of what sets Century Mill apart is our fabulous school horses.  Our schoolies are happy, healthy, well-trained and well-rested, meaning they are always ready to give you a good ride!  Many are privately owned, and almost all of them show through the A rated level with our students.  Many are also available FOR LEASE!

Here are just a few of our amazing equine partners:

  •  Frog -17h Thoroughbred, fun to flat or jump!


  • Domino - 15h Paint gelding, as sweet and reliable as they come!
  • Daisy - Small division pony who is easy to ride and wins everywhere
  • Master - Fancy large Welsh pony who can teach anyone the ropes
  • Pete - Super reliable, easy to ride medium pinto pony

Jai Smith-Rezac, Head Trainer, Head Coach & Owner

Century Mill is owned and operated by Jai Smith-Rezac. Jai has over 20 years of experience teaching students of all levels in hunters, jumpers, equitation, dressage and eventing. She has trained with countless top trainers of all disciplines and enjoys passing that knowledge on to her students and bringing them to the highest levels of their chosen sport. Jai teaches many of the adult riders and juniors here at CMS, both recreational and show. Her positive and supportive teaching style allows her to specialize in bringing along the more timid rider and in helping people who feel as though they have reached a plateau in their riding. Jai particularly enjoys teaching the other instructors at CMS, and believes that this fosters a continuity to the riding and teaching styles at CMS that is a huge asset to the stable. Jai believes strongly in the well rounded horses and rider, and offers several opportunities during the year for horses and riders to expand their horizons. Trips to ride on the beach and through the local orchards are led by Jai and are very popular breaks form the show schedule! Jai also takes clients on international riding trips to other countries. Recent trips have been to Hungary, Austria, Costa Rica and Provence, France.
