Giles Moves West



After a long stint as manager/trainer of Rick and Carolyn Daigle’s Valley Show Horse operation in Ft. Kent, Me., Jannie Giles has moved west to take over that same position for Campbell and Campbell, the show horse division for JRC Equestrian Estate LLC in Murrieta, California. The farm is located on 22 acres in the hills of La Cresta, a 3000 acre equestrian community 45 minutes north of San Diego.

Completely irrigated, the the facility features a 17-stall barn with multiple turnouts and beautiful green pasture. Plans for an additional 10-stall barn are complete and construction should be underway in the near future.

Campbell and Campbell will accept a small, select group of outside training horses that will join a very nice group of sale horses, both American Saddlebreds and Friesians. Rick Daigle has two top gaited geldings in training with Giles. The Big Dance has been extremely successful in the northeast as well as catching lots of attention at the major shows. Daigle also has the young CH Captive Spirit gelding, He’s Too Much with Giles. In addition the above mentioned show horses, Giles has Too Far North, a multi-titled park/pleasure horse by Buck’s Co-Star as well as the many times park champion Clove, a daughter of CH Foxfire’s Prophet. Two promising Buck’s Co-Star three-year-old fillies round out the Saddlebred string at the time. The Friesian line-up includes Mainse, Lykle, and Robin ut de Warren.

Both the American Saddlebreds and the Friesian horses will show throughout the west coast as well as being shipped east for shows and exhibitions. The first of many trips to Europe is planned for March of this year in search of top Friesians for importation.

“The combination of Jennifer Campbell and longtime customer Rick Daigle will provide top horses which will show from coast to coast,” said Giles “Southern California’s beautiful weather and these wonderful show horses seem to be a perfect fit. I would like to thank the trainers in the area for offering help and making us feel welcome.”
