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After spending hours searching on the web, she became frustrated with the outdated, irrelevant information available.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 Jacki 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 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.
Her background in both tech and marketing combined with her lifelong love of horses spawned the idea to create Equivont.
Board Member, San Juan Capistrano Equestrian Coalition and USDF Bronze and Silver Medalist.
