Assistant Professor of Equine Science
Equestrian Team Director
Originally from Birmingham, Ala., Jennifer J. Hoggle has been at Judson College since 1996. Since then, she has seen exponential increases in the size of the program and expanded opportunities for her students through contacts, curriculum, and competition within the equine community. She continues to work to select good, sound horses for the stables, cultivate personal relationships with her students, keep creativity in classes, and expand extracurricular opportunities.
Interested in horses from the age of five, Jennifer had always wanted a horse of her own and finally received her first one from her father at the age of 14. She immediately entered a showmanship class with hardly any experience, and, with the help of a friend giving her directions from outside the ring, she walked away with a first place ribbon and trophy. After that, horses and competition were in her blood.
Jennifer is active within the community of Marion, including the Marion Rodeo, the Marion Perry County Riding Club and Miss Rodeo Alabama. Jennifer was also the first person from Perry County or Judson College to be an elected member of the Alabama Horse Council. Besides working with horses, Jennifer also enjoys shopping, spending time outdoors, and eating chocolate. She is married to Robert Hoggle of Marion and has one step-daughter, Katie, and far too many pets to count!
