Jody Schloss

Jody Schloss of Toronto, ON is a Grade 1 rider who is very quickly making a name for herself in the International Para-dressage circuit. Although Schloss began riding recreationally at the age of 11, her competitive Para-dressage career began in her mid-twenties after a car accident in Central America left her in a coma.

When not riding, Schloss enjoys volunteering, sailing and sit-skiing. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and English as well as a diploma as an educational assistant. Schloss began her Masters in Disability Studies but has since put that on hold to focus on riding.

Under the training of her personal coach, Jessica Rhinelander, Schloss represented Canada in May 2010 at WindReach International CPEDI3* and in March 2011 at CPEDI3* Del-Mar; Schloss was also one of four riders who qualified to represent Canada at the 2011 European Tour.

Schloss trains at Swan Manor Stables in Oxford Mills, ON and has spent the past two years competing internationally with a goal of qualifying for the 2012 Games, where she will be making her Paralympic debut in London as a member of the Canadian Para-Equestrian Team.
