Located on 106 bucolic acres near the central coast of California, Sweetbeau provides the ideal location for the untouched mustangs. Horses can be desensitized with obstacles, trail riding, dogs, ranch equipment, people, livestock, and even solar panels.
- Ranch Manager/ Trainer/ Coordinator
Jess moved to California from New Jersey in November 2018 to join Sweetbeau Horses. She is one of the two trainers here, ranch manager, and program coordinator.
Jess’s background with horses contains primarily Off The Track Thoroughbreds (OTTB). After receiving her first OTTB project, she then went to work for a rescue, retraining ex racehorses to ready them for their new homes. When she moved to New Jersey, she rescued a few horses from kill pens at auctions, destined for slaughter. She’s always had a passion for saving the misfortunate and advocating for the voiceless, so she was thrilled to join the Sweetbeau team where she could combine her skills and passions for a greater good. Her three Huskies are the resident oddball ranch dogs.
Kaelanne began work at Sweetbeau Horses in July 2019 after graduating from Cal Poly SLO to continue her passion of horse training. Her passion began at 4 years old when she first started riding lessons and continued to gain momentum for the next 18 years as she continued to ride, train her own and other horses and learn about the finer details of Equus through her B.S. in Animal Science and Minor in Equine Science.
Kaelanne’s background is in Working Ranch and Western Dressage Quarter Horses and growing up along the Central Coast of California gave her many opportunities to explore those disciplines. Though she has not limited herself to the ranch lifestyle, Kaelanne has also dabbled in jumping, gymkhana, rodeo and has done her fair share of trail and beach riding at her favorite spots in Montaña de Oro and Oceano. She is excited to start her first career out of college gentling and starting wild mustangs at an organization that promotes all the things she loves about the horse industry.
