Jessica has been my 6 year old grand-daughter's riding instructor, as well as her pony's trainer. What a combination she had to work with: a green horse/pony and a green 6 year old. Amazingly, both of them are coming along and Bailey is now riding Snickers on lead. This is something I never thought would happen so soon and without many more problems for both of them. Jessica is a great teacher with patience, guidance, and knowledge. She is able to bring even the most off-task rider and horse back to attention with gentle persuasion. She teaches more than just riding as my grand-daughter is able to groom, bridle, saddle, and understand her horse from all she has worked on. There is more to owning a horse than just riding. I adore her and can not thank her enough for what she has accomplished. I will follow her, lesson and training-wise, where ever she goes.
