    Hello, my name is Jessica I'm a 24yr.old Florida girl :). I'm a Part Time Vet Assistant, and I’ll be finishing college in 2 more years. When I’ll become an Equine Vet, I work hard, I love horses and animals in general. I don't own one currently but I do lease a 16.2H Thoroughbred gelding named Zeke. Which you might be able to tell I jump (lol). I grew up with horses, my mom is an English Instructor. I own a 18 acre ranch, and yes I board Zeke at my own place. I don't own a horse because I was balancing college, a job, and moving out of the city. Which I did almost a year ago now, and I never got the change to look. But I may start I’m not sure yet, I’ve been leasing Zeke for 6 months now. I currently jump 4'6 and show 4'. I never push him very hard, mainly because I don't have time to extend it in the ring. Why waste work? I do love riding him, and he's great but some day I would love to own my own horse. I would probably still lease but still have my own horse. I always figured I would wait until after college. I've been showing English since I was 8yrs.old. I started jumping at 10, and I just moved up and when I went to college it kind of fell a bit.

    Which scared me because I’m finishing my schooling threw a stay at home online program. But I got wrapped up, and I dropped my lease on another horse a year in to college. I just kept bouncing off of different horses a lot. Which I know is horrible, but I always think leasing is a good option. Because I had to build back up to where I was at, and if you got a horse jumping say 2'6-3' and your looking to compete higher what honestly out of luck. Unless you push the horse to your level, but I didn't have the time, so I found a new horse. But Zeke is 7yrs.old and very athletic and college is almost over so I would really love to stick to him. I've also started looking for a horse to purchase which I hope you guys can later on help me out with . So anyways.. my story is getting long lol, I have 2 cats Annie & Mittens. Then 2 dogs, a Rott/German mix puppy Haley and a pit bull/lab mix Katie. I think that’s about it, and you can call me Jessica or Jess :). Thanks
