About Jodie Distad

For over 20 years now my focus has been on breeding, raising, training top quality paint horses and coaching their talented riders. In the last 15 years, I have shown and coached over 42 PtHA World Champions. I have shown and coached 4 APHA World show Champions,Top 5 and Top 10 APHA world show horses, and have Congress Champions and Reserves, in APHA and PtHA, also 4 x PHBA world champion! I specialize in starting young horses and turning them into show horses. I have a keen eye for movement and quality, and can assist in the buying and selling of the right horse for the right person. I love working in both western and english events, my talents range from specializing in starting horses, to show horses, to barrel horses! Many references available.

Jodie is married to Andrew Distad. They married in 2010 at the farm. They have 2 children, Cole Janssen who is 15 and Devin Distad who is 9. Both boys enjoy helping mom out in the barn and coming to visit the customers. Cole is in 9th grade at Albert Lea High School. He loves spending time with his dad, riding his horses, friends, football, wrestling, and baseball. 
Devin is in fourth grade at Sibley. He loves riding, anything outside, and his favorite activity is being grandpa and dad's helper!
