Residents win national equestrian awards



ATLANTA — Three local women, Kathy, Jessica and Megan Gilker, recently received multiple awards for their horses: JAG Kalico Kid, Conkar and CBS Good to Go. The trio achieved a total of four national championship wins and was recognized in 15 national Top Ten lists.

The divisions they competed in included training, first and second level dressage, hunters and “Sport Horse Under Saddle.”

The horses were trained and raised on the farm of Kathy and James Gilker, where Jessica and Megan would often train as well. They rode for almost their entire lives and then became lifetime members of US Equestrian and several other horse-related associations.
