BNR Stables goes to World Championships
Jessica Cieri started riding horses at B’N’R Stables at the age of 7, immediately loving the excitement and connection with horses; her true passion was discovered! Over the last 15 years, she worked hard and made her way from weekly lessons to part boarding, and then showing at local shows and fairs on a number of different horses. This past year she, along with her coach, Brenda Langendoen, decided to take a big step to the next level of showing and compete in Ranch Riding at the AQHA (American Quarter Horse Association) shows, the highest level of showing in Ontario. The goal was to learn and gain experience with no expectations. To everyone’s surprise and delight, Jewel (the horse she leases from BNR Stables) and Jessica performed fantastic, coming home from every competition with 1st and 2nd placings.
Jessica thought the season was over until a notice was received that she had qualified for the Lucas Oil AQHA World Championships! It had always been a goal of hers to show at the AQHA level, but to qualify for Worlds in her first year was unbelievable!
Jessica and her coach, Brenda Langendoen recognized what a special opportunity this was and worked together to turn the trip into a reality! On October 30th, the 11 day journey began. So many wonderful experiences were had and it was an absolute dream come true for both Jessica and Brenda. Jess and Jewel were the only competitors in their classes from Canada and learned so much – such an incredible experience!
Jessica and Brenda would like so send a huge thank you to everyone that made this trip possible and to the entire BNR Stables’ family for all your support! This fantastic opportunity wouldn’t have been possible without you and we are forever grateful!
