Kristen Vanderveen

Kristen VanderVeen, the owner of Bull Run Jumpers Inc., has been riding competitively for most of her life. As a professional show jumper, Kristen has dedicated her life to buying, training and selling horses. Kristen travels to countries across Europe, searching for talented horses to import to the United States. Once stateside, each horse is trained on an individual basis to compete at various levels of performance at horse shows all over the country.

Beginning her career in pony jumpers, Kristen received many accolades and awards, including second place in the National Pony Finals and a Team victory. She later went on to receive numerous blue ribbons, trophies and checks in Children`s Jumpers, and then as a Junior Jumper, Kristen took third place in the Prix de States National Championships on Bradberry.

Even with all her accomplishments, Kristen still has significant career goals, with her dream of one day representing the United States on the worldwide stage. This dream may very much be a reality in the not too distant future, as she is currently training to compete in the 2016 Olympic summer games.

Bull Run Jumpers, located in the West suburbs of Chicago, is a professional show team and an area leader in importing high quality Hunter and Jumper horses from Europe. We specialize in training and showing these horses in the United States, with the outcome of selling them to professional trainers for use with their clients. Additionally, we have passports, show records and videos for the vast majority of our horses, many of which can be seen at horse shows nationally.

Kristen Vanderveen

We believe in selling only the highest quality horses at reasonable prices, and have the desire to build long-term relationships, strongly based on honesty, trust, and visibility. We also understand that many horse deals involve trades, and we welcome conversations about horse purchases involving such arrangements.

Almost every Bull Run Jumper horse present at a horse show is for sale at a fair price. If interested and would like detailed information on a specific horse, please feel free to contact our owner, Kristen VanderVeen.

Bull Runs Alpha and Omega

Bull Run Jumpers imported Alpha & Omega (aka Flight) as a 5 year old and his first showing season in 2008 as a six year old showed great promise--he was clean in nearly all of his 6 year old classes in Ocala`s winter season with Kristen`s brother Josh. Kristen took over the ride and brought him along to be one of Bull Run Jumpers most successful Grand Prix horses. His first full season at the Grand Prix level as an eight year old in 2010 the pair won over $60,000. He was sold in summer of 2012 after winning the $30,000 Griffis Apt. Funds Rockies Grand Prix in Denver, Co brining his total career earnings to $120,000 and placing in over 35 Grand Prixs. Flight is great example of Kristen`s ability to bring along young horses to have successful Grand Prix careers. Flight is special horse for Bull Run Jumpers and we are excited about his career with his new owners.
