A Drumheller wo­man’s pas­sion of show jump­ing has earned her a cham­pi­onship at a re­cent event.

Jes­sica Syvert­sen, 22, has taken a keen in­ter­est in jump­ing and she com­peted at the Bow Val­ley Clas­sic, hosted by the Rocky Moun­tain Show Jump­ing ear­lier this month at the An­der­son Ranch south of Cal­gary. Her fa­ther Mor­gan is proud of his daugh­ter.

“It’s amaz­ing, she has done so well. And the whole sta­ble that she rides with placed in ev­ery single event at the show,” said Mor­gan, “and fi­nally the or­ga­nizer gave their coach a spe­cial award for all of her kids do­ing so good.”

Jes­sica has been rid­ing since she was about 10.

“We found a sta­ble near Cal­gary that of­fered lessons and she has been rid­ing ever since,” said Mor­gan.

To­day she trains at wood Sta­ble near Acme.

“You go where you get the best coach­ing,” he said.

Jes­sica has an­other event com­ing up in Au­gust at Para­mount Eques­trian south of Cal­gary. This is on an in­ter­na­tional style course. East-
