About Our Farm
J.A.G. Arabians has been operating since 1982 under the ownership and management of Kathy and Jimmy. At this time, the farm was located in Houston, Texas. In 1987, J.A.G. Arabians relocated to Alpharetta, Georgia bringing with them four horses.
J.A.G. Arabians stood the athletic, pure Polish Arabian stallion, Elated MSF (until he was gelded). Elated was shown dressage (up to 2nd level), western pleasure, country english pleasure, hunters, western trail, competitive trail riding, combined training, jumpers, and participated and competed in Atlanta Pony Club with Kathy's daughter, Jessica. The Welsh Pony stallion, Glyncadno Fairy King also stood at stud at the farm until he was sold to Brownwood Farm. King was awarded the 1995 Fourth Place High Score Award South East Region for Section B Stallions with Kathy Gilker.
On December 16, 1999, Kathy and Jimmy and their twin daughters moved to Mountain Road.
Kathy has continued to train and show in dressage, hunters, and combined training along with enjoying trail rides, hunter paces and cross country schooling with her Arabians and Half-Arabians, with the help of her twin daughters, Megan and Jessica, and support of her husband.
