Essex Equestrian Center realizes riding is not only a passion but a way to introduce the youth of tomorrow to responsibility, team work and a strong work ethic.  Our mission is to give your children a diverse experience that will allow them to show in local and national competitions and develop new friendships that will last a life time. 

In January, Jessie Hall, along with her family and trainer Tim Leuzarder, traveled to Florida to compete in the College Preparatory Invitational Horse Show. The competition attracts thousands of riders grades 8th - 12th from around the county.  Jessie earned Reserve Champion in the hunt seat equitation out of 160 riders!

In October 2012, four of the EEC show team members finished in the top 10 in the Bit O' Straw and Marshall Sterling Finals.  Jessie Hall riding Nelissa and trained by Tim Leuzarder jumped her way into 8th in the Marshall and Sterling Children's Medal Finals. That was no easy task since Jessie competed against 90 other riders.   Sammi Mazzella riding Cadillac Jack trained by Samantha Gardner captured 8th out of 60 in the Bit O' Straw Classic!   Also, competing in the Bit O' Straw Classic Christian Amoye on Scirocco rode into 5th place and Lara Hendrian on Rumors earned 10th place . Both train with Vanessa Trzesinski.
