Lisa Jacquin was born in Arizona and began riding at an early age. She competed as a junior for many years, while training with top riders. After graduating college she rode and trained on of the most successful show jumping thoroughbreds to ever compete, For The Moment.
In 1987, Jacquin took home the silver medal with the U.S. Show Jumping Team at the Pan American Games. She continued on to win six grand prix events, including the prestigious Budweiser American Invitational in 1988. Later that year she placed third in the FEI World Cup Finals in Paris, France. At the 1988 Olympic Games, Jacquin and For The Moment helped the U.S. Show Jumping Team win the silver medal.
Under Jacquin’s training and guidance, For The Moment, was named AGA Horse of the Year in 1991, 1994 and 1995. The pair captured their final victory at the Budweiser AGA Show Jumping Championship in Wellington, FL. Immortalizing their partnership in 2006, For The Moment was inducted into the Show Jumping Hall of Fame.
Lisa Jacquin now uses her knowledge and skills as a trainer. She runs BDJ Enterprises out of Coatesville, PA, but travels to Wellington during the winter months for the Winter Equestrian Festival. Along with training young horses, Jacquin loves to work and develop children’s skills.
