Jenny Vidbel is a third-generation circus performer and animal trainer who grew up traveling with her grandparents and their animals in various circuses throughout the United States. At age twelve she trained her first pony and presented him in her grandparents’ own show, Vidbel’s Old Tyme Circus, which she later owned and managed. As she grew, so did her deep love for animals. Over the years she has trained and presented a 12-pony drill team, a 2000-pound draft horse, goats, llamas, a large variety of mutts straight from the shelter, a Capybara, and an African Porcupine! This year she presents Arabian horses, ponies, and a mixed group of dogs. Jenny is very excited and proud to be performing in the Big Apple Circus once again this season!
