Jesse Lussier from Ste. Rose du Lac, Man. will be challenging for the Trainer’s Challenge title at the 2nd Annual Saskatchewan Equine Expo next February at Saskatoon Prairieland Park.
Raised on the family ranch, he competed in High School Rodeo, making the All-Star Wrangler Team and qualified for the Canadian and National Finals for three years. After graduation he attended Vermillion College where he participated in College rodeo. He also took in many colt starting and horsemanship clinics and was enthusiastic to learn from professional trainers.
By working with many individuals, Jesse developed his own style and training techniques. He started and worked with many young quarter horses on the family ranch; many of which were sold across the prairies and into the U.S.
Jesse has competed in Team Roping, Cutting and Working Cow Horse competitions.
He wears many hats, owning a herd of purebred Black Angus cattle, a commercial herd, and a small band of mares. He is involved in the grain end of the family farm; works for the local Co-op part-time, hauls heavy equipment for a drilling company, and he continues to train at MJ Quarter Horses.
He married Ashley Saquet in July 2010 and they welcomed their daughter Iyla Rose into their busy life in late August of this year.
