Young professional Jacob Pope has won what many riders can only dream of. The Champion of the 2012 ASPCA Maclay National Championship and USEF Talent Search Finals—East, Pope also brought home a team gold medal from the 2015 North American Junior and Young Rider Championships (NAJYRC) and topped the 2011 Emerging Athletes Program (EAP) talent search, a testament to his horsemanship, riding ability, and intelligence.
Pope graduated with honors from Rollins College in 2017 with a degree in International Business and is now the head rider at Team Rakowsky Equestrian in Wellington, FL, and Lexington, KY. This winter in Wellington, he rode to countless championships in the professional hunter divisions and also received top results in the open jumpers, riding for Rakowsky, Margie Engle, and others. He did so while riding in Equiline saddles, including the Marghe and Closer.
Equiline is proud to welcome Pope to its team of sponsored riders in 2018! Get to know him in our latest video feature!
