The World Conformation Horse Association welcomes Kate Jackson, Cisco, Texas as a new administrative consultant. Kate brings several years of experience from inside and outside of the arena with her to WCHA. In addition to competing as an exhibitor, Jackson has worked on the management and communications teams for breed associations as well as management roles in large horse shows.
Jackson truly knows no other way of life besides being in the horse industry. “When you are the product of parents who are two horse trainers, you really don’t have any other options,” laughs Jackson. Although her involvement might have started as involuntary immersion, her love for the industry has proven true as it has guided her entire professional career.
After graduating from Murray State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Agriculture Communications with an emphasis in Public Relations she joined the Pinto Horse Association of America, Inc. in the Communications Department and also served as the Director of Youth and Amateur Activities. From there her path led her to the Appaloosa Horse Club (ApHC) where she served as the Director of Marketing, working to promote the Appaloosa Horse. While working for the ApHC she relocated to Cisco, TX and teamed up with Three Nails Ranch where her husband, Jarrell Jackson is the Equine Division Manager for ranch owners, Billy and Suzonne Franks.
Jackson said she is thrilled to be jumping on board with WCHA. “I never knew my life would lead me to have such an appreciation and respect for the conformation horse. I look forward to using my experience and skills to prove that respect.”
From Executive Director Don Falcon, “We are both thrilled and very fortunate to have Kate accept the position as Administrative Consultant, everyone in the western horse show world respects and adores her outgoing personality and she comes to us highly recommended by other associations. A real bonus for our membership is that Kate will be attending many APHA, AQHA, PHBA, ApHC, ABRA and ARHA events throughout the year and will be our WCHA Ambassador in the field. On behalf of the EC and BOD, welcome to our team Kate Jackson!”
