Equine Canada Certified Competition Coach Jessica Glassford began riding at the age of 13. She started off in the hunter/jumper ring until she discovered she could have even more fun with the addition of banks, ditches and water features. Jess was hooked, and switched to Eventing, qualifying for the OHTA Championships in 2010, 2011 and 2012.
Her patience and consistency as a trainer, combined with her emphasis on developing well-rounded, quiet riders, results in successful and competitive horse/rider partnerships.
Jess is currently coached by 2012 Olympian and Pan-Am Gold Medalist Jessica Pheonix, and augments her skills and teaching methods by regularly participating in clinics with other professionals such as David O’Conner, George Morris, John McPherson and John Kersley. She has a diploma in Equine Studies from Kemptville College (University of Guelph).
