Jessica Phoenix - Road to Rio!
$4,865 of $10,000 goal
As you can imagine the costs for both horse and rider for such travel can be staggering and every contribution is greatly appreciated. In addition to this page, we are also having a celebration in Wilfrid on July 21 starting at 6pm with a silent auction and a 50-50 draw. I have created this page as an opportunity for those who wish to support my Olympic journey and are unable to attend. In particular, I also wish to thank A Little Romance’s owners Don and Anita Leschied, who have given me this tremendous opportunity on such a wonderful horse.
Thank you so much for your support! It is people like you that help people like me get to the Olympics!

Jessica has made it home safely, Blue is still hanging out in Miami with Sandra Andresen waiting to come home.
Jessica and A Little Romance finished 38th in a very tough Olympics. They had their personal best dressage score of 52. With a demanding cross country, and the first rider out on course, Jessica went out with pure determination. Blue with her cat-like jumping ability, they made it home safely.
Thank you to everyone for their kind words of encouragement and support. To everyone who helped with donations for the silent auction. Thank you especially to Don & Anita Leschied for giving this amazing opportunity with A Little Romance. Jessica and Blue could not have made it to the Olympics without you!
Last night we held the Road to Rio Send Off party, which was amazing! It was wonderful to see so many familiar faces and to celebrate an exciting trip ahead.
Again, Thank You to everyone for their kind words and generous donations over the past week!
We will be leaving the GoFundMe account open until Sunday July 24th until 9pm.
Jessica, Blue and Benny are on their way to Florida to make the final touches to their training at Training Camp for the trip to Rio.
Wishing them Safe travels.
