Jessica started riding at 5 at her famous family’s New Jersey farm and went on to remarkable horsemanship accomplishments at remarkably young ages with the support of her family, image below at the Tony Awards.
Her future was telescoped as a junior with her 2008 win of the ASPCA Maclay National Medal Finals. While pursuing her degree from Duke University, Jessica earned an alternate spot for the 2012 Olympic Games and she has since logged numerous accomplishments, including Nations Cup team efforts for the USA and on the Longines Global Champions Tour. Jessica and her horses split their time between New Jersey and Florida when they’re not contesting the European circuit.
