Jessi is our office and reproductive centre manager. She oversees booking appointments, ensuring clinic inventory is up to date, maintains the breeding facility, and cares for the horses at our facility. It is Jessi that answers the office phone or texts you back when you get in touch. She is a busy lady!
Jessi is an avid rider and also competes in the hunter jumper disciplines. Her picture shows her with her retired mare, Color Me Perfect, and her young rescue dog, Java. Jessi also owns a new young hunter named Rum Quest, and is well known in the show ring with her finished hunter, Brinello.
Bobby-Jo Conrad is our fearless summer student. Coming to us from Lucky Seven Ranch in St. Alphonse, MB, Bobby-Jo possesses a wealth of knowledge and experience with horses. She rotates between going on calls with Dr. Dobson and helping Jessi out with the stallions, mares, and foals at Elm Creek Equine.
Bobby-Jo is currently enrolled at the U of M studying Biology with aspirations towards equine veterinary medicine. We know she will be successful!
Bobby-Jo rides English, Western, and drives draft horses. Her horse is a Morgan mare named Freedom. Freedom also has a pony that is piloted by Bobby Jo's Bichon Frise, Pickles!
