Local Equestrian Strives For Olympic Gold

Only a select few ever have what it takes to make it to the Olympics. And of those few, only one can win the gold.

Tallahassee's Jenna Wyatt hopes she's the one and has devoted her life to training for that big moment.

Jenna Wyatt was destined to ride horses. Riding is in her blood. It's all she knows and all she's ever wanted.

"My family had horses before I was born, my mom was riding pregnant with me. I was born into it."

But it was her hard work and dedication that has her on the verge of the World Equestrian Games next year in Kentucky, and then if all goes well, the Olympics. A prospect that sometimes is hard to talk about.

"What would it mean to you? You know, just... A lot."

It's raw emotion that you rarely see in sports. Jenna's Olympic dream is not just her dream, it's the dream of her family, her friends, and her staff, all of whom have worked tireless hours to make this happen.

"My whole life and the life of so many others. It's exciting to think about it."

But there's more to Jenna Wyatt than just horses. When she's not in the stables, you can usually find her in the recording studio.

She's a singer-song writer, opening for acts like Ben Harper and writing music for Back Street Boys and even Paris Hilton.

"It's different when I'm on stage, it's just me. When I'm on the horse, it's the two of us. If one of us is not 100%, then it's not 100%."

Jenna Wyatt has already lived a great life, but there's a lot of life left to live. And nothing would be more special, more emotional, than an Olympic Medal.
