Lise' grew up with all sorts of animals. The family had a dog when she was a baby and as she got older enough she was allowed her own pets -dogs , cats and champion cavies. She learned about cattle , horses and riding during summer visits to her grandparents in Arizona It was there that her love of horses took hold, riding through the desert, taking picnics along or racing down the dirt roads. When her father left the Navy and the family settled in California in her junior high years, she convinced her parents to give her riding and jumping lessons and eventually to buy her and her sister a horse. College came along and the horses had to go on hold while she earned first her bachelors degree, then her animal health technicians license (AHT) and finally a teaching certificate in mathematics, which allowed summers off to pursue horsey endeavors. While working on her AHT license, she bought her first horse, a Thoroughbred off the track to retrain for pleasure riding and jumping, then an ancient gelding for friends to ride, Next came the Appaloosa mare that was the foundation of Jumper's Appaloosa Sport Horses. Over her 25+ years she trained the farm's Appaloosa stallion, JAS Rockin Robin, to a Reserve World Champion ApHC Dressage Suitability Stallion title as a 3 year old & to numerous wins around the northwest in rated dressage shows including 3 qualifications for and 1 trip to the Region 6 Dressage Championships. She handles the stallions for servicing mares and started many of their young horses on the path to championships with their owners in dressage, jumping and eventing. In 2013 the farm acquired the KWPN registered Pinto Dutch Harness Horse stallion Vincent, then early in 2014 Robin passed. These 2 events led to the decision to take the farm into the larger sport horse market, making Lise' the head trainer for their renamed farm Jumper's Sport Horses.
George provided the 'Jumper' for Jumper's sport Horses when he and Lise married. He had little experience with horses, but jumped right in, supporting Lise in all aspects of the farm- handling the mares for breeding, playing with and helping train the youngsters, riding out with Lise on his horse to introduce the young horses to trail riding, driving all over the country to horse shows and being the 'groom' at those competitions. At their one trip to the Region 6 dressage championships, when given the choice of the "Owner" or "Groom" badge, he choose "Groom".
