Jessie Arrowsmith

jessie and encore

Jessie has spent the last 20 years assisting with our lesson and education programs here at Eclipse Equines. 

Jessie was taught by Marti, and when she wouldn't listen to her mother and longer she took lessons with Jack Trainor and has schooled with some various judges and clinicians most notably, George Morris. Specializing in the little ones and beginners, Jessie equally enjoys intermediate and adult riders.  

She enjoyed competing as a child and does now as an adult, especially in the eq ring, but loves time out in the field hacking or hunting just as much. When she isn't in the barn you'll likely find her  enjoying time with her husband Jeff and their three daughters, Hayden, Addy and Eleana.
