Elgin, IL – September 12, 2014 - Divide and conquer seems to be the theme of the Jayne family’s Our Day Farm of Elgin, IL. The diversity and flexibility of the family team allows them to train clients and horses at all levels and all locations. The proof lies not only in their ability to divide up and attend different events, but the real proof is in their results. From the Olympic level to junior jumpers to starting young horses, the multi-talented family can tackle it all.
Charlie Jayne, 28, has Olympic level knowledge and experience from his international career. Charlie most recently returned to the United States from the World Equestrian Games in Normandy, France, where he was the alternate for the Bronze Medal winning US Team with his Pony Lane Farm mount, Chill R Z. Charlie then traveled to participate in the Zoetis $1 Million Grand Prix in Saugarties, NY, where he competed over Olympic size jumps to earn a fourth place spot among some of the world’s best show jumping horses.
From there, Charlie will attend the Central Park Grand Prix on September 18th, for $200,000 in prize money at the Trump Rink during the four-day celebration of the horse in New York. Charlie’s resume includes numerous laurels including alternate rider for the 2012 London Olympics, winner of the $50,000 Idle Dice Stake of Devon, fourth in the $200,000 Amrican Gold Cup and the list goes on.
Meanwhile, Haylie Jayne Rolfe, 26, was in Bristol, WI, with 15-year-old Giavanna Rinaldi and her GPS Brilliant Disguise at the Evergreen Invitational. Haylie and Rinaldi came home with the blue ribbon in the Show Jumping Hall of Fame Junior/Amateur Jumper Classic. Rinaldi has moved up the ladder since joining the Our Day Farm Team about a year ago. She has gone from the Children’s Jumpers to Grand Prix’s in that time with some major wins including Champion Junior Jumper at Devon and Leading Junior Rider, the Equiline $25,000 Spring Grand Prix in Wellington, and the NAL Low Junior/Amateur Jumper Finals at the Pennsylvania National Horse Show to name a few.
Back at home, Maggie Jayne, 27, and successful horseman and father, Alex, were getting horses ready for the local IHJA ‘A’ Finals Showplace Fall Classic Championship Horse Show in Elgin. With horses in every division from baby green hunters and jumpers to the grand prixs, the group stays busy collecting Championships all week long.
In addition, Alex and Haylie will be heading to the $45,000 Young Jumper Championships in Kentucky with some of their talented young jumpers.
