Monday Video from Tredstep Ireland: Emma Erickson and Jumbo’s Jake

It’s been two years since we last saw Jumbo’s Jake at Rolex with James Alliston, but his competition days are far from over thanks to a new partnership with young rider Emma Erickson. After the now 17-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding by Jumbo retired from the upper levels, the Erickson family purchased him to show Emma the ropes.

They’ve been competing at the Novice and Training level for the past year and won the Junior Training Rider division at Galway Downs this past weekend, finishing on their dressage score of 31. Frankie Thieriot Stutes caught up with Emma and Jake in the barns in this exclusive interview.
