Jessica began riding at the young age of 7. She immediately fell in love with the sport, and knew it would be her lifelong passion. She started out competing locally on the MHJA circuit with her pony, where they earned numerous year-end championships up through the Large Pony Hunter division. Her parents then purchased her a OTTB at the age of 12. She worked hard training him from the ground up into being a very competitive junior hunter on the A circuit.
To further advance her riding and horsemanship skills, she attended The University of Findlay and earned a Bachelor’s degree in English Equestrian Studies and Equine Business Management. While there, she was captain of the Findlay’s IHSA team and qualified for Nationals individually, and as part of the team. She also gained invaluable riding skills learning to ride all types of horses; from breaking out colts to riding Grand Prix and International Derby horses.
In 2013, shortly after graduation, Jessica began working at HCF. She has since achieved top successes and numerous championships competing on everything from green horses, up to international derby and prix horses under Nicole. Jessica loves using her knowledge and experience to help clients and horses reach their top goals.
Sarah grew up in Statesboro, Georgia and began riding at a young age. For as long as she can remember, her love for horses has been strong and meaningful. She acquired her first hunter when she was 10 years old and started competing at rated shows soon thereafter. At the age of 15 years old, she began competing with her junior hunter, Ne-Yo, and experienced immediate success, winning numerous championships and excelling in her riding experience. As a junior, Sarah was able to experience some personal and local training at home, but her real experience came when she was able to travel out of state to show with Liza Towell Boyd and Jack Towell, of Finally Farm in Camden, South Carolina. When Sarah reached the age of 18, she became a professional and moved to Wellington, Florida to work for a private farm as a rider and groom. During this time she was able to work with and develop multiple young horses, work with top professionals such as Heather and her father Ralph Caristo, and continue competing in derbies with her horse, Ne-Yo. In August 2020, Sarah moved to Columbus, Ohio where she joined the Hunters Court Farm team. She continues to live her desire working with young horses and helping clients reach their full potential.
