Our baby girl Jessel is growing up to be a fine young riding horse! She has spent the winter in Ellensburg with Joel Conner. He has been fostering her and riding her part time. Since she is so young we don’t want to put too much pressure on her to be in full training but this light and easy approach is really turning out a nice horse! We are going to work on getting her AQHA papers this spring and hopefully see her with Joel at the SAFE show in August! Here is a little from Joel about the progress she has made so far:

Jessel is the most athletic horse I have ridden from SAFE! She has extremely smooth gates, has the potential to turn, and stop like a top-notch cow horse! I have put her on cattle and she is really keen on watching and controlling their movements. She is developing into a horse I don’t want to leave! I have turned her out now with one of my geldings and they are getting along great!  She is taking to roping the dummy and is settling into being a gentle filly!
