Jacqueline McCall has always had a love for animals, and being raised by a Veterinarian it was no surprise that she has spent her life rescuing and helping any animal in need.
Jacqueline spent her childhood in a barn, participating in Pony Club and Eventing. After deciding to homeschool, Jacqueline spent every moment she could in the barn. During high school she worked for several lesson programs and trainer, refining her teaching style and finding out what worked best. While not teaching she spent her time competing all over the country in USEA events on her horses. Nationally ranked in 2013 on her horse Widow Maker at Training level she had plans to move on towards prelim. After retiring Widow Maker due to some arthritis she bought her current competition horse, The Novelist, and plans to push for 1* in the Winter of 2017.
Jacqueline is now studying Paramedic at the College of Central Florida, she plans to graduate in December of 2016. Between studies she competes her horses and gives lessons at the farm.
As Farm Manager Jacqueline has a simple principle: the horses come first. Always researching the newest ways to keep horses happy and healthy and applying those techniques in the barn, Jacqueline would be happy to help you care for your horse.
Dr. McCall graduated from LSU and pursued her Veterinary career until joining the Air Force. As an officer of the USAF she studied Epidemiology and continued her Veterinary education and experiences.
