Friendly Frolic ~ 1999 OTTB Bay Gelding
Friendly Frolic, or "Fro" as he's commonly called, has been with Jessie for seven years. Initially the plan was to move up in the equitation ranks of Maine Hunter Jumper circuit. After three years of partnership, the plan evolved to encompass a focus on the hunter discipline with training background in dressage and eventing. In their long term partnership Fro and Jessie have earned numerous awards in the hunters, jumpers, eventers, and dressage. Currently he competes second level dressage with Jessie and is teaching students the ropes in the schooling and special hunter divisions.
Shake Me Like A Monkey ~ 2009 OTTB Bay Mare
Shake Me Like A Monkey, or "Monkey" as she's commonly known, came to Jessie in February of 2016 from Hemphill's Horses (owned and operated by Emily Mitchell) in Vassalboro, ME. So far, in her first four years of competition, Monkey has brought home awards in Introductory and Training Level dressage, Easy Does It hunters, Pre-Green Hunters, and elementary eventing. Jessie is looking forward to continuing down the road toward a long term competition partnership with this quiet minded, talented mare.
As many of you already know, equestrian sport and competition is one of the more expensive passions an athlete can pursue. The health, care and upkeep of her equine partners is Jessie's absolute priority. Support of the program, facility, horses, and students is encouraged and very much appreciated!
