Abbey is Jesse’s daughter, and has grown up with and around horses. She began vaulting at the age of two and began competing at four. Abbey paused the sport when she was eight but continued to stay loosely involved in her mother’s business as she loved the horses. At ten, Abbey expressed an interest in Hunter/Jumpers and began lessons. For the next two years she was in a competitive Hunter/Jumper program. After leaving the program, she resumed her vaulting and purchased a slaughter rescue. She is now training for Junior World Championships in her vaulting while developing her rescue, Max, as a Dressage and Hunter/Jumper prospect alongside her mother. She has trained under multiple experienced trainers and has received her entire dressage education under Jesse. She is an advanced amateur, excluding competition experience. In her vaulting, she consistently helps with private lessons, younger children, and camps. In her riding, her timing and patience allows her to be applicable and open to working with any horse.
