After starting out as a Zoologist, Jenny is now best known for her work on Horse & Country TV (SKY 280). Jenny joined the H&C team in 2010, presenting and reporting for the channel at all the top equestrian events.
From this, the show Rudall's Round-Up was born in 2011. Each fortnight, Jenny attends a different show or competition, reporting from backstage to bring viewers insight into the event and interviews with riders from grassroots to the very top of the sport.
Rudall’s Round-up: Greenwich was a daily analysis show which ran throughout the London 2012 Olympic Games. Jenny interviewed a panel of experts and celebrities each day from a location in Greenwich, creating an informative and entertaining show. She also reported from within Greenwich Park on the Paralympic dressage competition.
Jenny has presented sporting coverage from major events including Hartpury International Horse Trials and Bramham International Horse Trials, bringing her depth of equestrian knowledge and her enthusiasm for sport.
She has also interviewed many celebrities and members of royalty, including HRH Princess Haya, HRH Prince Sultan bin Salman, Zara Phillips, Rory Bremner, Jennifer Saunders and Martin Clunes.
Jenny is equally at home behind the camera - producing several of the popular shows seen on H&C including an in-depth show on the Household Cavalry’s Jubilee Year and, most recently, the hugely successful 'Carl and Charlotte: Golden Year'.
Jenny has a BSc (Honours) degree in Zoology from the University of Southampton, and remains passionate about animals. The rest of Jenny’s time is split between competing in eventing, coaching and producing horses. She is a qualified riding instructor and runs her own company where she encourages and tutors her clients in all equestrian disciplines.

How did you get involved with horses?
I rode as child in army saddle clubs, as my Dad was in the army, but didn’t take up horses properly until after university. After my degree, I decided to train in Ireland, as well as gaining my BHS exams, and this gave me a great knowledge in showjumping and training youngsters.
When did you start working for H&C TV?
I ran Wimbledon Village stables for many years and, unbeknown to me, one of my clients - Heather Killen - was the Chairman of the channel. When I left Wimbledon to go freelance, Heather asked me to come on board and have a go in front of the cameras. I still teach and train alongside my presenting role with H&C.
What would you do if you didn’t work with horses?
I would probably have gone into my other love, zoology. After my degree course, I started work with horses, but I would love to study animals again.
Horse of a lifetime?
I have a few – in dressage, it has to be Totilas, after I saw him at the Europeans I was in love. In eventing I’d choose Murphy Himself and Tamarillo - both were brave and clever horses, although Murphy was perhaps a little too brave! In showjumping, it’s the famous Shutterfly – that horse jumped with his hooves round his ears.
Do you have your own horses?
I am very lucky that I have owners who trust their horses Lois Lane and Frankie to me – and I will be out and about on the eventing circuit when I’m not busy covering events for H&C.
Do you have a nickname?
Several, but H&C blogger Jay Halim called me J-Rudd and it seems to have stuck.
My screen test for H&C backstage at Olympia – petrifying!
I think anyone who can get to the top in equestrianism is astonishing but I think there are few better than Andrew Nicholson or Francis Whittington cross-country, Shane Breen is a phenomenal showjumper and in the dressage world it has to be Mr Hester!
David Attenborough – not sure that needs further explanation.
There is no such thing as luck, just opportunity mixed with preparation.
