The Horses and Their Breeders
Jessiman Equine breeds and raises performance and sport horses. Canadian Sport Horses are bred to excel in any discipline from ranch, to three-day eventing, to pleasure riding. The Jessiman’s have been breeding horses for decades. Gord used to breed horses for the pregnant mare urine program (PMU) and bring his foals to The Home Ranch to share bloodlines in a unique market in Colorado. Now Gord brings his foals to The Home Ranch to sell because he knows they are going to have good lives, and be put in good homes. From their first interaction on our ranch, they are in gentle hands - learning human interaction, lunging, and being put on a lead.
Typical Horse Breeds and Prices
The horses are a cross breed with Draft horse and either a Quarter Horse or Thoroughbred. The average price of the foals is $675.
After the Sale
We have kept tabs on many of the horses sold and many of these horses are on the hunter/jumper circuit. One is a pickup horse in the rodeo, one is fox hunting in Alabama, and many have been added to our dude string as they are so reliable, with great dispositions and great size. Our neighbor Sharon uses Guiness for pleasure riding and just started him driving a wagon.
"I found your information while doing some random surfing. I just thought that I'd get in touch with you, as I realized that I have a horse that probably came from your sale originally. His sire is Ice Caper and his dam is Jewel. His name is Guinness and he is registered under the Performance Horse Registry as Its Good for You. I just thought you might be interested in him and what he's doing.
I bought him from a dressage trainer just before he turned 3. I am an eventer and originally worked with him with help, from a dressage trainer. I have been working, more recently, with jumping trainers and now another advanced level eventer. Guinness went on to compete and place 4th in the Young Event Horse competition at the Colorado Horse Park, I was so proud of him. He also has done several schooling dressage shows, in which he has always placed.
He gets noticed by riders and trainers everywhere he goes. He is a brave cross country horse and a talented dressage horse. Most of all, he has an amazing mind."
