Jay started his career with horses at the age of 6 on a pony named Misty. He experimented in numerous equine venues such as endurance riding, trail, gymkhana games and jumpers thourghout his teen years. As he matured, Jay found a love in the Morgan breed. He bought his first registered Morgan, "Green Briar Dark Brown" and began training with many of the areas top Morgan trainers. He trained and showed for many years in western and huntseat pleasure as well as saddle seat. The abundance of knowledge he gained from these role models has proved to be a great asset in perfecting his present day training & showing skills.
Many would say that Jay is best known for his ability to retrain "problem" horses that are often deemed hopeless causes by their trainers. Jay has taken many of these, so called "hopeless" horses, retrained them an d gone on to win numerous awards.
Besides his abundance of versatile horse knowledge, Jay brings the veterinary perspective to the Four Seasons Family. After a school field trip to the then Rochester Equie Clinic (now Myhre Equine) in 1982, Jay was hooked on equine medicine. He began as a volunteer there at age 14, then went on to work as a veterinary technician and soon after a surgical tech. Jay's list of daily technician duties were none different than the veterinarians'. He would routinely monitor anesthesia during surgeries, read radiographs, artificially insemiate mares, administer IV medications, catheterize horses for surgery, night watch for foals and intensive care cases as well as countless other medical tasks. Boarders can feel safe and secure knowing that Jay brings a vast array of veterinary medical experience to the farm.
