Welcome to the Pickford Performance Horses Website!


Pickford Performance Horses is run by Jessica Pickford in Battle Creek, Michigan, which is conveniently located in Southwest Michigan.  It is just one hour south of Lansing, MI, Halfway between Chicago and Detroit as well as just an hour away from the Indiana border. 

Jessica founded PPH in 2008 after graduating summa cum laude from the nationally recognized University of Findlay with a baccalaureate in Western Equestrian Studies as well as Equine Business Management.  Her love for the versatile American Quarter Horse is what got her initially interested in showing and training all-around horses and has expanded her interests into the Paint, Pinto, Appaloosa, Palomino as well as Buckskin circuits.  Her experience in horse showing knowledge spans the traditional Showmanship, Hunter Under Saddle, Western Pleasure and Trail, as well as Jumping, Reining, Cutting and Ranch Horse classes.

Jessica's devotion and passion for the equine industry has made her not only a barn manager, trainer and riding instructor, but also as a volunteer coach for her old High School Equestrian Team and a recently approved conditional judge for the Michigan Youth Association.

Her belief in creating a well rounded, happy  horse that moves true to it's gaits allows her customers to have horses that are extremely versatile.  There is no reason that a well put together 15hh horse can't have a great extended trot or that a 16.3hh horse can't have a nice lope!
