“There will come a time in your life where you will need to get a shot in your butt, and you will be wearing your disgusting schooling tights, your shirt will be wet with sweat, you’ll smell, and the doctor will be the hottest guy ever…”
Sometimes, even as life seems to be kicking you down, it also finds a way to boost you up — which is how Ainsley Jacobs and her horse JJ find themselves heading to Florida for a month of training in warmer weather!
“Dress for the job you want, not the job you have.” Ainsley Jacobs makes a good case to apply this saying to riding: “ride for the horse you want, not the horse you have” to help change your horse’s attitude, mood and energy.
It’s been a year and a half since Ainsley and her horse JJ last tackled a three-phase competition, sidelined by human and equine injuries. We’re pleased to share the story of their first competition back in action!
