My name is Jess. When I was 6 years old, my dad took me for my first horseback riding lesson and I was hooked. Ever since that day, I knew I wanted to build a career around horses. As I moved through high school, Robin McGahey from RMD Stables introduced me to the American Saddlebred and my path was set.
My love for horses led me to attend William Woods University in Fulton, MO and learn from the prestigious Gayle Lampe, what it meant to be a professional trainer. During school, I had the distinct honor of working for John & Renee Biggins as well as Bill & Nancy Becker. I will forever be in their debt for the lessons I learned while under their guidance. I would graduate from William Woods in May of 2005 and return home to New England to work for Rob Turner at L.M. Turner Stables.
In 2008, I took a leap of faith and launched Verrill Stables in Danville, NH. 12 years later, I am proud to think of myself as a hard working, woman entrepreneur who has launched a business, grown a family and wake up each and every day loving what I do.
