Owner, manager and trainer of Avalon Farm, Jessica, a USDF Gold, Silver and Bronze medalist, has accomplished a great deal in the art of equine. Jessica is also an “L” Graduate with plans to pursue the "r" judging program in the near future, because she believes that in order to be a well-versed trainer/ rider one needs to be knowledgeable in every aspect of the sport.
Jessica found her love of horses at the early age of 4. (Jessica's parents threw her a pony party where she rode her first horse, and she has never looked back).
Though Jessica started riding and training as a Hunter, she found her true calling when she starting riding Dressage in 1999.
While working with many top trainers, clinicians and at prestigious barns, Jessica has developed her skills in overall horsemanship, riding and training. She has also learned high standards of horse care and the overall development of a top equine athlete. Jessica still continues her education by attending clinics, symposiums, and working with her coaches as needed.
She has achieved the ability to apply these principles in her everyday riding as well as teaching others in a patient and relaxed manner. Jessica specializes in the ability to readily communicate the "how to's" to her students. Each student/client will receive personalized attention to help ease the path towards their personal goals, whether it be for competition or pure enjoyment of their horse.
