Jessica Schnell

Jessie graduated from the University of New England in 2009 with a degree in biology that led to three years as a veterinary assistant and technician in an ER and General Practice followed by a career with IDEXX Reference Laboratories; a veterinary technology company. She started and led the University of New England's Intercollegiate Horse Show Association Team from 2005 to 2009 while gaining experience by working and training at multiple hunter/jumper barns including Meadow View Equestrian Center and Chez Chevaux Equestrian Center.

Jessie has been riding and competing for 20+ years and teaching since 2013, with a focus on the hunter/jumper discipline. She currently serves as a member of the board for the Maine Hunter Jumper Association (www.mainehunterjumper.com) and cross trains in dressage and eventing with Patricia Garthwaite Towle of Tatra Farm in Clinton Corners, NY and Allison Springer of Allison Springer Eventing at Beverly Equestrian in The Plains, VA. 

Most recently, Jessie took the second half of the 2018 season off to focus on home and family with her partner, Jon. They welcomed their son, Carson, on December 22nd and can't wait to bring him to the farm for his equine debut! Heading in to 2019, Jessie looks forward to picking back up with consistent training, teaching, clinics, and a successful show season.
