Jessica Lund has been riding with the Mounted Eagles program since 2009 and has become a very accomplished rider. Her current riding partner is Lily, who Jessie says “sometimes has a mind of her own.” Even when Lily wants to do things her way, Jessie has the riding experience to work with Lily and get her to complete what she is asked to do. “Lily knows me and is a pretty good listener, so we can get things done during our lessons” says Jessie with a big smile. Jessie always has a positive attitude and is willing to try new things during her riding lessons. Jessie is very talkative and keeps up on everything that is happening around her. She says that riding at Mounted Eagles has helped her to concentrate and follow through on directions. She also finds riding very relaxing and of course lots of fun! Jessie comes to the barn with her friends Erica, Colleen and Natasha who also ride in the Mounted Eagles program. Jessie encourages her friends during their lessons and wants to make sure they are having fun. Along with riding, Jessie also enjoys grooming Lily “to make her look really nice.” Lily likes the attention during the grooming sessions and just seems to know when she looks nice! When Jessie is not riding, she likes hanging out with her housemates and playing with The housecat “Dolly” who is a rescue cat. Jessie loves to plan parties and along with her friends, have created what they call “Series Sundays.” Jessie explains that all you do is pick a series show to watch, invite your friends and have snacks ready. Sounds like fun! Between the party planning and working five days a week, Jessie loves to read on her Kindle. Nicholas Sparks is one of her favorite authors. When asked, Jessie admitted that she is not all that interested in cooking, but she does love to eat, especially pasta and pizza. Jessie loves to help her Dad out on the farm in Baudette. On the farm they have a dog named “Jack” and a barn cat named “Baby.” Jessie is very proud to say that her brother Jared is a doctor, her sister Janet is a nurse and that she is very excited to be an Aunt! Jessie, we are certain that you will be a wonderful Aunt!
Congratulations on being selected as Rider of the Quarter!
