Meet our May 24th Trail Judge:

Katie Jackson - Owner of Sneek A Peek Farm in Spotsylvania, VA. I have been riding for over 20 years. I began my horse riding in career in New York where my aunt bred Appaloosas. I began riding western (pleasure and barrels) and didn't switch to english until I moved to VA. I started mainly in the hunter ring and completed in the local and rated rings through the 3'3" hunters. Mid-way through college I made the transition to the jumper ring where I competed through the 3'6" jumpers. While in high school and college I competed on AIRC and IHSA teams. Three years ago I adopted an OTTB and began training and competing as an eventer. I currently compete locally and rated at the Novice level (3'). I have a passion for equine health and performance. 18 months ago I became a certified equine nutritionist. I focus on genetic metabolic disorders such as PSSM, IR and HYPP as well as common issues such as obesity and malnutrition.
