A Colorado native, Jessica's inherant love for horses started from a young age; growing up in a non-horsey family, she is fortunate to have parents who support and encourage following the childhood dream of riding and competing in the top levels of Eventing.

 

In 2003 Jessica traveled across the country to Southern Pines, NC to train with the legenendary Denny Emerson at Tamarack Hill Farm.  For seven months, she remained as a working student with Denny and eventually branched off with his assistant trainer of 14 years, Lynn Coates-Holmes.  Lynn established LCH Enterprises in Aiken SC where Jessica worked as an assistant while attending college for a BSN in Nursing.  Under Lynn’s training Jessica competed through intermediate HT and two long-format CCI 1* with her self-made Jamocha.  With Lynn’s clientele Jessica rode and competed a variety of horses and learned the ins-and-outs of running an event barn with an emphasis in both training and selling horses.

In addition to eventing, Jessica worked as an exercise jockey breaking and training young Thoroughbreds in Aiken for Dogwood Stables for 5+ years as well as Canadian Mike Keogh and for Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott in Saratoga, NY.  The experience gained in cross-training helped to develop a strong background in starting young horses and retraining OTTBs.

 

Jessica's most notable top horse, Lock N Load, was purchased as a 3 year old OTTB near Suffolk Downs.  He was testing from the start with the talent and drive of a true UL horse, and the amount of patience and skill learned from the horse was insurmountable.  The patient efforts it took in developing a partnership eventually led to great success in competition including wins in The Ocala CCI* from start to finish in 2009 and a win in the VA CIC2* in 2012 before moving up to the Advanced level. Since then, Jessica has continued produce both personal and client horses for sale and for competion, with the aspiration of competing at the top levels of the sport. 

After purchasing the farm in Aiken, SC, Jessica continues to strive to build an honest and reputable business in the community, resulting in many long-standing clients.  Her passion and dedication to the sport has helped to develop a strong program training and developing both horses and riders.
