Jed Lawrence grew up on a cattle farm in Nancy, Kentucky, and began riding horses early on. Growing up around cattle, the cow horse events were appealing, though Jed also competed in pleasure and team roping during his teens.  In his early 20s, Jed began training and competing in Reined Cow Horse and Reining events. 

Jed worked for NRHA 5 Million Dollar Rider for 3 years where he eventually became the head assistant trainer to Shawn. While at Shawn’s, Jed built up an impressive resume, from starting and riding the 2009's NRHA Futurity winner “Gunnatrashya” as a 2 year-old, to winning all 4 divisions of the Bill Horn Derby in 2009 on KR Offtoseethewizard (and beating “the boss” marking a 222!)

In 2010 Jed returned to Kentucky where he opened his own business, Lawrence Performance Horses and began training Ranch, Reining, and Working Cow Horses. Jed has had success in many different associations include the National Reined Cow Horse Association, American Ranch Horse Association, and National Reining Horse Association. He has been ARHA’s Professional of the Year Top Money Earner 2X, America’s Top Ranch Hand Champion & Reserve Champion, NRCHA Limited Open Bridle South East Champion & Reserve Champion, finished in the Top 20 at the 2019 NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity, Congress Top 10’s, ARHA World Championships, & many more. 

Jed’s successes weren't limited to time in the saddle, as he helped many Non Pros and Youth achieve their goals.  He has coached clients to many wins at some of the ARHA World Championship Show, ARHA Year End titles, NRCHA and NRHA titles as well. 

Jed intends to continue to develop his career based on a strong work ethic and driving desire to always improve.
