Instant Connection



Jordyn Isgrigg, in only her third ride with Reedann's Fantastic Design, was top three in the competitive Kentucky Equitation 17 and Under class under the direction of Helen and Jimmy Robertson of Infinity Stables. Isgrigg normally competes in equitation with her horse Blues Strutter but barely more than a week ago her horse was knocked out of competition for the rest of the show season with an injury.

 

Helen Robertson happened to be talking to Joel Dorignac, who rode in the equitation division with  Infinity and then returned to work as an assistant trainer, about Jordyn losing her equitation horse so unexpectedly. Dorignac now works for Dr. Alan Raun at Reedannland Farm so he asked Dr. Raun if he had a horse that he thought might work. Dr. Raun immediately offered Fantastic  Design who had been competing in the show pleasure driving division. Jimmy Robertson called Dr. Raun and they worked out a plan. Jimmy judges Illinois State Fair, got home Saturday morning at 4am and left at noon that same day to drive to Cumming, Iowa to pick her up.

 

Jordyn practiced a couple times and in the ring they went Saturday evening and made it look easy in their first show together. "I was nervous," said Jordyn. "I'd only been on her back three times but it turned out to be great."
