Bantry Bay’s Diesel "Diesel" ; 13 year old Connemara/TB gelding

"Horses have always helped me to find strength in various ways."

Jordan started riding over 25 years ago. She has mostly trained Dressage, including being part of the UVM dressage team in college. Toward the end of college, she purchased Diesel when he was only about 4 years old, and they've been growing as a team since.

"They’re relaxing and comforting while also presenting enjoyable challenges."

The whole family.

In case you haven't heard me say it, I absolutely adore when dogs join in on our sessions. It's not uncommon for equestrians to have their horse on one side and their dog on the other. Luna, a. lovely Australian Shepherd, is a huge part of Jordans life. Naturally, she had to join in on the fun!

"You are too frickin’ dramatic."

Jordan has owned Diesel for about 7 years now. When training, they mostly focus on Dressage. However, these days, they mostly just enjoy a laid back partnership at a beautiful farm (CHAMP at Good Hope) in South Hero, Vermont.
