In 2010, Jocelyn Wiese and Lamborghini, a 1996 Danish Warmblood by Michellino has confidently showed Grand Prix at GMHA, UNH, and Saugerties CDI. “It’s new for both of us but I must have a freakish gene, I don’t get nervous. I enjoy it.” Jocelyn plans to compete Lamborghini in the CDI’s at Grand Prix this winter in Florida hoping to qualify for the 2011 USEF Grand Prix Championships, while working for Pamela Goodrich at Foster Meadow Dressage.
Joceyln worked as an assistant trainer at Hilltop Farm, Inc in Maryland (2007-2009), which gave her broad experience working with young horses and stallions. Wiese showed a wide variety of horses, ranging from the Westfalan pony stallion, Popeye, to a Fresian stallion, along with many others. “My time at Hilltop gave me the boost, name recognition and experience to be able to successfully go out on my own.”
Wiese also has a 3-year-old Oldenburg gelding Dela Cruz (De Laurentis x Rhythm & Blues-Rosenthal) bred by High Point Hanoverians that she is pointing towards the Markel/USEF Four-Year-Old Young Horse Dressage Championships. Wiese had gone to look at another horse but this one stood out. “He whinnies at the gate when he sees me. He loves to work.”
Wiese teaches both amateurs and junior riders and rides horses mainly for amateur clients. “I prefer riding over teaching, however, I’ve become much more confident in my teaching ability and now really enjoy it. I like working with young riders, helping them establish the basics to get started on the right foot. I also have some wonderful, fun amateur students who are very motivated in their riding goals.”
