We are happy to share that Jessel has found a home with Alexandra in Spokane, Washington! Alexandra, an accomplished rider, had just lost her 17 year old mare to colic. Alexandra’s experience is a perfect match for Jessel and her continuing education under saddle.

Before her adoption, Jessel was in training with Joel Conner in Ellensburg and had been started lightly due to her age. She already showed a ton of talent and athleticism, and had been introduced to some cow sorting and was very keen on the idea of being a working horse.

Alexandra’s sister, Natalie, had posted a very sweet in search of ad on social media. She wrote that Alexandra had recently lost her one-of-a-kind mare and was just putting feelers out to see if any available horses matched her “ideal” partner. The ad was forwarded to our Operations Director Terry. She recalls, “When I read what they were looking for I literally got goose bumps. I knew Jessel was a perfect match and I called them that night!”

The next week they came to meet our feisty little filly and the pair looked like they had been made for each other. Alexandra loved her size, spunk and the great foundation Joel had given her. Terry said, “I have to admit Jessel is one of the SAFE horses I remember as ‘the one that got away.’ She is an amazing mare and I am so happy that she has found such a wonderful and loving home.”

Alexandra says, “She is such a joy each and every day and I am so grateful to you for bringing us together.” We are all blessed that this wonderful pair found each other! Looking forward to many years together.
