American Quarter Horse Association, April 3, 2015 – Many people in the American Quarter Horse industry know his voice, whether it’s from his many hours at the microphone during the American Quarter Horse Association world championship shows or while reading racing pedigrees at racing auctions. But now people in the American Quarter Horse racing industry will get to know Jayson Jackson as he helps them market their farms, stallions, racetracks and other interests by joining AQHA as an outside account executive.
“We are really excited to have Jayson team with our many racing properties and help us sell their value to the people involved in American Quarter Horse racing,” said AQHA Manager of Business Development Doug Hayes. “Jayson’s outgoing personality and his love of racing will help him promote our products and help our members market their interests in American Quarter Horse racing through AQHA’s properties.”
Jackson was born in central Texas and now resides in Bixby, Oklahoma with his wife, Becky, and their four children. Growing up in rural Texas, it was natural for Jackson to develop a love for the horse industry. His family vacationed in Ruidoso, New Mexico, home to the All American Futurity, which helped develop his appreciation for sprint racing.
In addition to his gigs behind the mic, Jackson has trained, bred and sold horses throughout his life. He reads pedigrees at Heritage Place Sale Co. in Oklahoma City and at many other major horse sales across the country.
Today Jackson still trains a few horses, manages a group of stallions and mares, and understands the value of good marketing.
“I hope to demonstrate to people that AQHA’s line-up of digital and print products for racing are great ways to reach existing and new customers,” Jackson said. “I am excited to really get to know people in the racing industry and help them with their advertising and marketing needs.”
Jackson, who will work from the road and from his home in Bixby, will begin calling on customers immediately.
