JB Equestrian (JBEQ) is owned and operated by Jacqui Basquil and run out of her family property in a small village in the Southern Highlands, since 2016. We are located about an hour and a half out of Sydney and two hours from Canberra putting us in a prime position for many events around the state.
Jacqui was born with her passion for horses and lucky for her, was taken to riding lesson in Terry Hills at the age of four and had her first pony, Honeybell by five. There haven't been many days since that she hasn't been riding.
She is currently completing the EA coaching level 1 course to improve her skills as a coach and a horse professional.
Today, Jacqui's focus is to continue to study the classical dressage theory and practices of the training scale to best pass on knowledge. This forms the foundation for all disciplines of riding. She aims to create a positive learning environment for the JBEQ community to succeed.
With her team of horses she has ambition for reaching top level Dressage and Showjumping.
Her current horses include JB Django, Converse and Bloomfield Fiadora.
Django is a 8yo homebred TBxWB out of a Vivant mare by Another Warrior. While Django is 3/4 thoroughbred and is bred to event, he is a big moving powerhouse that Jacqui has decided to develop for his dressage career. In his early life, he competed up to prelim level eventing but was cut short when Jacqui decided to specialise in dressage and showjumping alone in 2018. Today Django is progressing really well now he is starting to learn how to balance and has just started the flying changes journey.
Bloomfield Fiadora or Fifi was bought at the end of 2019 as a 2yo in hopes she would be developed into a dressage horse. Typical of a Bloomfield horses, she has a beautiful nature and very easy to deal with. She is currently training the basics and getting use to the idea of going out to new places.
