Jessica has been riding since she was a young girl, and started off competing in dressage at the age of 13. At age 15, she discovered eventing, and never looked back. She graduated from Western Washington University in 2002 with a degree in Management Information Systems, all while successfully riding and competing at the highest international level.
As a trainer, Jessica has a gift for seeing a project through and persevering no matter how big the obstacles might seem. She is dedicated to the success of both her horses and her students and understands that communication between trainer, horse, and rider is vital to success. She tailors her training programs to meet the specific needs and desires of each of her clients (both equine and human) and encourages active participation, whether the goal is a safe riding partner or an international competitor.
Jessica understands that dressage provides a strong foundation for all riding and that it is vital to success in eventing. Her understanding and commitment to the training scale allows her to help each horse develop to their full potential. She loves bringing horses and riders along and seeing them succeed through the levels. She has experienced great success at the international level and has the dedication and commitment to help horse, rider, and owner, achieve whatever their dream may be.
