The importance of training
Born in 1986, Jessica began competing in dressage at the end of the 1990s, qualifying for the Federal Championships at Warendorf in both 1998 and 1999. At the tender age of 15 she began to handle the strict codes that govern equestrian competitions and the stress that goes with them.
Thanks to her passion and discipline which have honed her natural talent, Jessica claimed not only six gold and two silver medals in the European Junior Championships at only 19 years old; she also won three national titles in Germany.
Convinced of the importance of training, not only for her horse but also for herself, she began regularly and intensively practicing yoga and gymnastics in addition to hiking and running, all essential for her mental and physical condition.
During the 2013-2014 season, she took 3rd place in the Neumünster (Germany) World Cup and the German National Championships, followed by 1st place in the Gothenburg World Cup. In 2015 she added a 3rd place finish at the World Cup Quali er in Amsterdam and 3rd place in the World Cup Finals held in Las Vegas, in addition to a second 1st place win at Gothenburg.
Founding ‘The Home of the Dressage Horse’ in Aubenhausen, Bavaria, with her brother, Benjamin Werndl, has made it possible for the siblings to accompany horses and oversee their schooling from initiation on through to national and international championship levels.
