Jess and Rhys Stones really need no introduction into the equestrian community, they have both been equestrian professionals from a young age. They combine an extensive and extremely successful background and knowledge of show and show jumping horses to create J and R Equestrian.
Jess and Rhys are both successful World Cup Show Jumping riders and producers of up-and-coming young horses. Jess is one of Australia's most decorated Show Riders having won a plethora of Royal Show Championships plus multiple State, National and HOTY Titles. Rhys is also a Royal winning Show Rider.
With a crazy busy schedule, we'd like to thank Jess for taking the time to answer some quick questions for us!
