JAELYN JORDAN is from East Syracuse, N.Y., and rides at Spruce Valley Stables in Erieville, N.Y.  She has been riding for one year and her main discipline is Dressage. Jaelyn’s goal is to become the best rider she can be and to be successful at riding. Her pony is a 7-year-old Paint cross named Indigo Girl and Indigo’s favorite treats are Mrs. Pasture’s Cookies. Jaelyn’s favorite thing about Indigo is how personable she is. Outside of the barn you will find Jaelyn playing the French horn, dancing and participating in drama and art club. 

If you see Jaelyn and Indigo at a show make sure to say HI!

Each month, we will feature a Rising Star Program participant in our newsletter.
