JESSICA STARCK DRESSAGE

Jessica Starck is a USDF Gold Medalist offering lessons and training in Ocala, Florida.

ABOUT JESSICA

Jessica was introduced to riding at the age of three by her mother, and she would continue to build a solid foundation of horsemanship skills as a member of the St. James Pony Club in Chicago, Illinois. In 2006, she left her work in Neuro and Clinical Research to pursue a dressage career full-time. Jessica has competed client horses at all levels and brought her own Holsteiner mare, Ultra Sonic, successfully to Grand Prix with a high score of 72.5% in the freestyle. In 2015, Jessica acquired her USDF gold medal and freestyle bars.

Jessica is passionate about continuing her education and is always striving to improve her riding, teaching, and training. She has a classical perspective and approaches her training fundamentally for the horse and rider’s understanding. She has been influenced by some of the Spanish Riding School’s past and present greats. While training for Tempel Lipizzans, Jessica had been lucky enough to work closely with Conrad Schumacher—whom she credits for teaching her a heightened feel of thoroughness, the horse's back, and systematic German approach.

Jessica has enjoyed helping students achieve their medals and personal riding goals. As an instructor, her objective is to create independent and confident students—in and out of the show ring. She enjoys helping horse and rider combinations of all types and skill levels find harmony in their partnerships.

Jessica Starck is now available for lessons, training, and clinics in the Ocala area.
