Jessy Gibb

Degree: B.S. Animal & Nutritional Sciences, Equine Management and Agribusiness Management & Rural Development minors, August 2015

Career: Gibb currently works at Garrison Forest School in Owings Mills, Maryland. The facility is an all- girls boarding school that is home to 75 horses and an equitation program. Gibb is responsible for the daily care of the horses and administering routine first aid, assessing fitness, and communicating with the veterinarian, farrier, and other service providers.

Internships: Gibb interned at Dark Hollow Farm, a Thoroughbred breeding farm where she assisted with the management and care of broodmares, weanlings, and yearlings. She also completed an internship at Days End Farm Horse Rescue, a rehabilitation and rehoming center for horses also in her home state of Maryland.

About Attending WVU: “Keep an open mind and intern at a broad range of places to get a feel for what you enjoy. If you would have told me my freshman year that I would be working with horses right out of undergrad I probably would have laughed at you. But, the knowledge and skills I gained from the equine courses was in-depth and the push I received from advisors to pursue internships helped prepare me to work with horses in the real world.”
