The 95th Royal Winter Fair opened with a live performance of RISE – by Elyse Saunders. This was the first time ever a song opened The Royal. Jessica rode Abbey GS on both the Friday and Saturday night of the Indoor Eventing Competition, sponsored by Horseware, and Tipperary. The pair were faultless on the Friday night, and in 2nd place heading into the final round on Saturday. They put in an exhilarating round and captured the win!
During this jam-packed weekend, fans had the opportunity to meet Jessica as she hosted not one but two clinics, as well as two autograph sessions/meet and greets, held at the Ontario Equestrian booth, where one also had the opportunity to buy copies of the book RISE:The Jessica Phoenix Story. Both Jessica and her sister and author Julie FItz-Gerald were on hand to autograph copies of the books.
What a week!
