JC Horse Sales Staff
Janet Carlson a graduate of USC has owned horses her entire life. She founded Orange County Horse Show Association while riding as an amateur with Mike Nielson in Huntington Beach. Janet showed successfully for many years on the "A" circuit in the A/O Hunters, Equitation and Jumper divisions with several different horses.
She feels her many years of competing as an amateur has helped her to relate to the type of horses her clientele want and need, whether they are showing at the entry level or the top "A" shows. Janet has always been very involved in the best horse care for her animals, having had horses both at home and at large equestrian centers.
Janet decided to give up competitions after a complicated ankle surgery, but continues to ride every sale horse to help evaluate their temperament, talent and soundness. Janet appreciates the wonderful horses her sellers consign to her and the trust so many top trainers and riders share with her whether buying or selling their horses.
