May 12 - Allentown, N.J.
Not only did Jessica Phoenix’s husband, Joel, surprise her by coming to watch her compete at the Jersey Fresh Three-Day Event with their son, Jacob, but she also won the CCI*** competition on Exponential, making for a very special Mother’s Day.
Going into show jumping, they were second behind Buck Davidson and D.A. Adirmo, and when Jessica took down a rail, she doubted she'd end up in the winner’s circle.
However, Davidson had two rails on the relatively green gelding, giving Jessica the win.
