Lenore Brown recently joined the team at the Loxahatchee-based equestrian public relations firm JRPR.
Brown recently made a change from being on the ground with the horses as a manager, rider, groom and veterinary assistant to being the newest account manager at JRPR.
Beginning her lifelong love for horses at her family’s Warmblood breeding business, Last Laugh Farm in Pennsylvania, Brown was placed on a horse before she was able to walk. She continued to ride and compete in the jumpers while also training as a competitive swimmer.
Brown attended Hood College in Frederick, Md., where she graduated in 2008 with honors and a bachelor’s degree in history and art history. She was also a captain of the swim team, starting her sophomore year. During this time, she also worked with show jumper and eventer Marilynn Little at her family farm.
After graduation, Brown chose to pursue a career in horses and landed a job grooming and managing for Olympic gold medalist Leslie Howard. It was this pivotal experience that gave Brown the firsthand understanding of the exciting world of Grand Prix show jumping.
Continuing to pursue her passion of show jumping at the highest levels, Brown has also had the opportunity to work for top professional riders, managers and veterinarians. She has traveled to all of North America’s premier horse show venues.
Most recently, Brown spent two years working for John R. Steele & Associates as a veterinary assistant. As she advanced as a professional in the sport, she began to see the opportunity to be involved in another fast-growing aspect of equine sports — marketing and development.
“I believe that equestrian sports are on the cusp of being mainstream in America, and I really want to be a part of that movement,” she said. “I am passionate about showing the broader public this sport that I love.”
Johnny Robb, the president and creative director of JRPR, is thrilled to have Brown join the team.
“She has already demonstrated an incredible work ethic and brings a wealth of hunter jumper and veterinarian experience to our team,” Robb said.
