When it comes to horses, she has inherited her fathers and grandfathers lifelong passion for the breeding, raising, and showing of the registered American Saddlebred Horse. She is a member of the American Saddlebred Association.

Her grandfather, Andrew Jackson Palmer, was a farmer and carpenter who helped build the State Capitol Building in Frankfort, KY. He owned a large farm that bordered the Kentucky River in Eastern Kentucky's Madison County. Besides the many different farm animals, he always kept registered American Saddlebred horses. Her grandfather would tell her dad as a little boy, Son, always keep this breed of horse on your farm. " They will move your heart."

When her father, Judge Andrew Jackson Palmer II, graduated from the University of Kentucky Law School in 1952, he moved to Paducah to practice law. He held the office of McCracken County Attorney and County Judge from 1965 to 1974. During that time he owned a small farm near Lone Oak where Jennifer learned to ride horses, the beloved breed of the Palmers. She fondly remembers her first pony, Judy Sue. She and Judy Sue participated in many equestrian events, and Jennifer continues to compete in horse shows in Kentucky, Tennessee, Missouri, and Alabama.

Jennifer now owns descendants of the horses that her dad rode to school in Madison county , Eastern Ky. She has ridden and shown this breed of horse (ASB) since she was six years old. She says, They are truly medicine for my soul, and they do move my heart! You can look at Jennifer's horses under Customer Links on her web site.

Jennifer's older brother, Andrew J. Palmer III was KY Governor Julian Carroll's Chief Legal Assistant while he was in office. She's the step-daughter of Don Pepper, retired editorial writer for the Paducah Sun, and Joretta C. Palmer, worked as a legal secretary for many years, sister of Kentucky Supreme Court Justice Bill Cunningham.

Along the way, Jennifer has been blessed with two beautiful children, David and Katherine. David is a Design Engineer for CISCO and one of the world's 154 individuals with his certification.

Katherine is very successful in her career in Sales at COLOR MATCH in Henderson, KY. Jennifer is extremely proud of both her children who excel in their respective careers, and she absolutely adores her seven grandchildren with whom she spends time whenever she can. She says with a smile on her face, They are also medicine for my soul!
