Jessica Phoenix

As the reigning Pan American Games champion in eventing, Jessica Phoenix has quickly risen up the ranks to become one of Canada’s most respected and well-known eventing athletes. Representing the maple leaf, she rode Exploring at the 2007 Pan American Games in Rio de Janeiro and in 2010 was part of the silver medal-winning team at the World Equestrian Games in Lexington, KY, this time aboard Exponential. Proving her talent for training top international eventing horses, a year later she captured individual gold and led the team to a silver medal at the 2011 Pan American Games in Guadalajara, this time riding Pavarotti. For her outstanding performance at the Games, Phoenix was named Equine Canada’s Equestrian of the Year. In 2012, Phoenix rode Pavarotti at the London Olympic Games, finishing a respectable 22nd and helping Canada earn a 13th place finish in the team event. The duo also helped the Canadian Eventing Team finish sixth at the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, qualifying the team for Rio 2016. During the 2015 spring competition season, Phoenix was injured during a fall on cross-country, but proving herself a fierce competitor, she has already bounced back from her injuries and is ready to once again ride for the maple leaf.
