Jennifer Margosian has been an avid rider since childhood.
Pictured here on her Appaloosa, Chip, she is relatively new to Gymkhana competition, having started about five years ago.
Jennifer has been a riding instructor for over fifteen years, and has participated in numerous Competitive Trail Rides and
Endurance Races. In addition to helping out as a member of our Ring Crew, she is also the unofficial
Trail Ride Coordinator.
Frank Alessandrini, owner and operator
of Color Run, started riding when he was 40 years old - in 1995. In 1999, he partnered with Jackson, an 8 year old Paint
Gelding with an attitude - and a desire to win. The human-equine team of Adrenaline Junkies has been playing together
ever since, competing in Gymkhana, learning some (a little) Dressage, playing Horse Soccer, and traveling countless miles
of trails. While both Jackson and his jockey are getting a little "long in the tooth", the attitude is still
there. Frank serves as Color Run's Event Organizer, Scorekeeper, and most important,
Head Groundskeeper. He also works as the Gymkhana Show Manager for the Schaghticoke Fair.
