Jessie Blackmon is coach of the year.

Horse Council BC’s vvice president Allison Warren presented the Horse Council B.C. (HCBC) 2015 Coach of the Year Award to Jessie Blackmon at a celebration honouring her achievements in Langley on March 3.

HCBC’s annual awards serve to honour outstanding achievement within BC’s equestrian community. These awards acknowledge those who have stood out from the crowd over the past year and who have made a positive impact on the community as a whole. Each award recipient was nominated by two or more other Horse Council BC members for an award.

The HCBC Coach of the Year Award is awarded to an individual who has demonstrated outstanding professionalism, leadership, and mentoring skills in a coaching role overseeing a team or individual at any level in any recognized equestrian discipline during the year.

At 29 years old, Jessie is a one of a kind coach in her ability to teach a wide variety of horses, students, and disciplines. She educates her students on the full spectrum of horsemanship – from groundwork to foundation training to higher level dressage, eventing, jumping or western riding and does so with integrity and determination.

HCBC received over 12 nominations for Jessie for Coach of the Year when only two are the required amount to be considered “in the running” which shows just how much her students want to support the great work she does. Jessie is passionate about what she does and inspires her students to keep learning and growing no matter their age or experience level.
