Jaeckle Centre Horse Shows and Events
While many hunter/jumper folks are taking a break from horse shows over the winter, or have gone to Florida for the winter circuit, the Jaeckle Centre in Thompson’s Station, TN is providing show opportunities for folks in the mid-south to continue showing indoors. The Jaeckle Centre hosted a Mid-Winter horse show December 27-28, 2014 and the Snowflake I hunter/jumper show January 24-25, 2015, which saw one of their largest turnouts ever! The Snowflake II show is coming up February 21-22, 2015. These hunter/jumper shows are approved by MTHJA and KHJA.
In conjunction with the shows, the resident veterinarians give free seminars on specific horse health issues. January’s clinic focused on Lower Limb Lameness. Dr. Mark Wooten, DVM, Director of Equine Performax Veterinary and Rehabilitation Therapy Services, held three 45-minute educational sessions in the Jaeckle Center Lounge on January 24-25, 2015. Since the lower limb is the most common site of lameness in sport horses, owners and trainers need as much knowledge on the subject as possible about how injuries and diagnosed and the role of the veterinarian in the diagnostic and healing process. The seminars gave participants tips on what to look for and the treatments that can make a difference with early intervention.
Champions at the Snowflake I show are listed in the companion document.
Several performance clinics are scheduled for the spring months. On March 21-22, “Ask the Judge” clinic with USEF R-rated judge Karen Healey.
On April 11-12, dressage and show jumping clinic with CCI 4-star eventer and combined training coach Ralph Hill.
On April 18-19, Professional Barrel Racer Christy Loflin offers a barrel racing clinic.
