Youth of the Month - Jaclyn Adams
I would like to nominate Jaclyn Adams as Horse Previews Youth of the Month. Jackie, the daughter of Chuck and Pam Adams, is 13 and in 7th grade at East Valley Middle School in Spokane where she is involved in sports and maintains a A- grade point average. Her love of animals, particularly horses and dogs, is evident the minute you meet her; she joined Pony Club at age 7, began lessons with trainer Monty Collison and started showing at age 9, and is currently showing her outstanding hunt seat horse, Jet's Paradox. She and "Mindy" have teamed up to win numerous championship, scholarship, and high point awards, including the prestigious Doncliff's Jura Memorial High Point Award two years in a row. In addition, she qualified for the Region 5 Championship Arabian show on "Shiraz." Jackie always sets high goals for herself and the horses she rides, and this show season hopes to be among the Top 5 statewide. She has a positive attitude and is always willing to help out friends and competitors; at a show, you might even find her bathing or grooming someone else's horse after she's finished her own preparations. She enjoys boating and fishing with her parents, and loves taking care of the "family herd" of 4 horses, 2 rescued dogs, a bunny, and a cat. I'm proud to be Jackie's friend and "assistant horse show mom" and I feel she's most deserving of the title Youth of the Month.
