My name is Jaleesa Haygood, I am a recent grad looking to take a much needed break from my studies and further my horsemanship career. I have owned and trained my own mustang from the ground up and now I would like to learn more. I have worked and several barns in the area on and off and I have numbers available for reference upon request if you need them. I just want to work in horses again in any way, some way I can continue to learn and grow as a horsewoman as well as earn a small wage. I have been to shows and have worked in environments from saddle seat show to harness racing. Please call or message me for any more information or interviews, I would love to hear from you.
