Meet the Trainers
Rachel Jansen Jones, Owner and USHJA Certified Trainer
Coach – ASU Equestrian Team, Crossroads East Valley High School Team
Rachel founded Crossroads Farm in 1998, after working and showing for several hunter/jumper barns in Arizona and the Midwest for over 15 years.
She found that there was a need for an “A” Circuit barn in the East Valley, that catered to teaching Juniors and Amateurs all-around horsemanship, in addition to riding and showing.
“Our riders win at the State and Zone levels, but they also know how to bandage a leg, lunge their own horse, or treat a sick horse.”
Rachel was President of the Arizona Hunter Jumper Association for 2 terms, and is currently on the board of the AHJA, a member of the United States Equestrian Federation, the United States Hunter Jumper Association, and the Arizona Hunter Jumper Association. Her students and horses have captured many year-end awards with the USEF, AHJA, and USHJA. Some of the highlights include winning the Sallie B. Wheeler Yearling Hunter Breeding Championship West Coast, coming in 3rd in the International Hunter Futurity Finals in Kentucky in the under saddle, winning the International Hunter Futurity West Coast Reserve Championship, qualifying Juniors for the National Junior Hunter Championship as well as the National Pony Finals, and numerous year-end Championships in the rated Hunter/Jumper Divisions, from Baby Greens, to 2nd Year Greens, to Junior Hunters, to Junior/Amateur Jumpers.
Crossroads Farm attends about 15-20 “A” rated shows each year, from AZ, to CA, to NM, as well as numerous schooling shows, so all levels of riders can achieve their goals. The farm also hosts schooling shows, warmblood inspections, and clinics with world-famous riders and trainers each year.
Rachel is a USHJA certified trainer. She is also the coach of the ASU IHSA Equestrian Team and Crossroads Farm has partnered with the Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA) to bring the sport of horseback riding to students in middle and secondary schools and to promote and improve the quality of competition and instruction in the East Valley.

Haley Reeves- Assistant Trainer
Haley’s love for horses began at the age of 12 after taking her first riding lesson. From there on, she rode at a few different barns around the Chandler/Gilbert area before finding Crossroads Farm in 2011. She rode her horse Kaydin on the ‘A’ circuit where she competed in the junior hunters, medals, and equitation. Haley attended Sweet Briar College in Amherst, VA, where she showed successfully on their Fall Hunter Show Team, competing at HITS Culpeper, Raleigh, and the Virginia Horse Park. Haley was champion of the SWVHJA Adult Medal Finals in 2013 in a wide competitive college region. She was also a part of the winning ANRC National Championship Novice Team in 2014, judged by the famous George Morris. During her summer breaks she surrounded herself with opportunities in the horse industry, such as being a working student for Jason Berry (Jason Berry Stables), and working at a summer camp in Monmouth, ME, where she taught lessons ranging from beginners to course work with more advanced riders. Haley graduated from Hollins University with a degree in English, and is thrilled to be back at Crossroads working with the students and their horses, as well as helping to coach the ASU Equestrian Team!
