The Double J was founded on the hope of producing top performing Quarter Horses. Jesse has been riding for just under 30 years and competed in barrel racing for several years as well as helping friends train their horses before deciding to take some time off. Her first show season was with her pony she trained at the age of 6. In that season they won her first trophy and years later that pony carried a friend to third place in the pony divison. She trained with Lynn Mckenzie and won the novice competition at one of the clinics she attended. During her three years of competition she won five buckles, three trophies, and qualified for the NBHA World show in both the youth and open divisions four times, on all three horses she competed on. In 2000, she and Tee Gees Ghost were in first place at a local riding club in the senior divison before having to make a early stop halfway through the season. She trained horses with a well known local trainer and has started her own colts.
In 2012, she purchased Betty Zan Hancock as a performance and barrel prospect and bred two mares in hope of kicking off her breeding business. In 2013, with the help of her manager, the Double J was officially started and she again bred two mares for future performance prospects. This year has been the best so far, and 2014 looks to be very promising as well. It has been a lifelong dream to breed, train and compete with performance horses and that dream is finally coming to reality. Stay tuned for our 2014 colts and for the Hancock filly's introduction to riding and the show world.
