Hello Kaeco Customers,
My name is Jacquelyn Gregory and I am a student-athlete attending Mcneese State University in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Let me tell you a little bit about myself and my journey!
I was born May 20, 1993, and I have been around horses my whole life. I rode my first horse when I was 5 months old. Since then I have been in love with the creatures, growing up my brother and I went shoeing with my parents every day. While shoeing, with my parents, I would go around and pet all the horses and if they were being bad, I would stand on their heads to calm them down! I have been home schooled since 4th grade so it enabled me to spend more time riding and practicing for rodeos. I would do my schooling as fast as I could in the mornings, so I could go out and ride and rope the dummy if my parents weren't around. Because of all the practice I got to put in those days, I won my first All Around Cowgirl saddle in 2006, I had just turned 13. I have won around 40 buckles (I haven't kept good track of the exact number) 4 saddles, 3 of them being All Around and one Missouri State Champion Breakaway Roper title. I have qualified for the Junior High School National Finals Rodeo in Breakaway, Goat Tying, Team Roping, and Ribbon Roping, all 3 times it was allowed. The first year I qualified was also the first year they put it on. I qualified for the High School Nationals Finals Rodeo 3 years in the Breakaway and Goat Tying.
I started breaking colts for outside clients when I was 14, thanks to the help of my hero, Roy Durfey. He taught me everything I know about breaking colts and training of calf roping horses. Before I moved down here for school I had a business in Missouri breaking colts. I would take on 2-3 at a time during the Spring, Summer, and Fall.
I am 3/4 of a way done with my first year of college at McNeese State University in Lake Charles, LA. It sounds crazy to me, but its true what they say, time flies by very fast! I am double majoring in Athlete Training and Psychology and compete on the Mcneese State University Rodeo Team; I hope one day to be a rodeo coach at a school in eastern Texas where I hope to live on a horse/cattle ranch. Currently, I have 4 horses and an Australian Shepard dog named Texas, down here at school with me, Bonnie my breakaway horse, Jasmine my goat tying horse (that we raised and I trained), Mater my barrel prospect, and Mister Tee my old breakaway horse that I hope to return to roping off of after an injury rehabilitation.
I decided to attend Mcneese State University because of the great Rodeo Team and quality academic program. I was blessed with receiving a full ride academic and rodeo scholarship. Also, along with my 20 hours of school, practice, and rodeo (riding horses and roping is always my favorite part of the day1). I also work for a retired vet, trimming his 30 horses and riding a few when I have the time. He has also provided a cabin for me to live in and it is a very nice place that my friends refer to as "Disney Land". To say the least I do not live the life of the average college freshman! I have been very blessed in my life with great parents, family and friends and with opportunities that I thank God for every day.
In 2012 I was offered a Sponsored Representative role with Kaeco Group, Inc. I currently utilize Kaeco's TPC, Total Performance Conditioner, on all four of my performance horses. Stay tuned for more updates as I will provide updates and information on TPC and other equine nutritional products by Kaeco !
