Equivont: Meet the Founders

Equivont Founders, Jessica DiCostanzo and Jaclyn Dunt, were both literally raised in barns. Their passion for horses is the driving force behind Equivont.

Jessica has been an active member of the California horse show circuit since she was a child. She has competed successfully on the dressage, jumper, and eventing circuits on numerous horses. Today, she and her fabulous mare can be found on the cross country course or cruising the trails at Sycamore Stables.

Jaclyn grew up riding horses near Lake Tahoe. She has competed in both jumpers and dressage and has years of experience both riding and teaching as a professional. She currently has 3 perfect (albeit sassy) mares that she competes on the hunter/jumper circuit across the California Coast. Her background in the equestrian world and experience in sales and marketing have helped bring Equivont to life.

Born and raised in California on the back of a horse, Jessica had the opportunity to move to Florida last year. As a working amateur, she began researching options for bringing her horse along with her.

Where to board? Who to train with? What farrier options were there? Who transports horses across the country?

After spending hours searching on the web, she became frustrated with the outdated, irrelevant information available. Existing directories provided a name and a phone number at best and there was no way of telling if this professional was even in business any more. After leaving countless voicemails that went unreturned and thumbing through archaic websites, it was obvious there is a huge disconnect between riders and the professionals.

In any other service-related industry consumers search online to find out what their options are. Whether it be a restaurant, a plumber, or buying a car. Why wouldn’t horse people adopt a similar approach?

This experience powered the concept of Equivont. Jessica teamed up with Jaclyn to bring this word-of-mouth industry up to the digital era.

Equivont partners with reputable and relevant businesses and professionals who WANT TO BE FOUND by the equestrians who are searching for them.

Jessica and Jaclyn share a passion for horses and the people who love them. Equivont is created to connect equestrians to products and services that share the passion for what brings us all together- our horses.
