More about our hosts:

Sally Spickard is a 32-year-old marketer and journalist from Missouri who now resides in San Diego, California. She is an unashamed Harry Potter nerd and Kansas City Chiefs fan, and she can rarely be found without her long-haired Chihuahua, Cooper (and for this reason, you’ll never find her on a United flight!). While she’s currently horseless, Sally is an event rider who hopes to one day ride like Michael Jung. Alternatively, she’d just settle for learning how to sit the trot without looking like a sack of potatoes!

 

Jessica Payne is a 32-year-old international event rider who is rarely seen without her long-haired chihuahua under her arm. She was born in London, Ontario, but grew up in Franklin, Tenn. and graduated from Auburn University with a degree in Animal Science. She once lost the tip of her pinky finger clipping her 4* horse, and husband Doug says she can “talk to anyone including a wall….and they will like it!”

 

Justine Griffin is an award winning 30-year-old journalist who has written about everything from horses to high profile CEOs to her ovaries. (She donated her eggs once.) Two things she loves the most? Whippet puppies and cheese. Justine is a firm believer in unicorns and feminism. So take everything she says with a grain of salt.
