James Hale has been a professional horse trainer for over 30 years. In fact, he's never had a "real job." He was the head trainer at Jones Valley Farm in Anniston , AL and Omega Farm in Anderson, SC before opening his own business in 1995. He and his wife, Jackie, were married in 1997 and built their stable and home on 13 acres in Columbiana, AL.
During the past 30 years the Hales have served the ASB community in a variety of roles - from having a bustling Amateur/Juvenile business and teaching public lessons, promoting horses for sale via a cutting edge Consignment Sales program, while always remaining true to James' first love - bringing along young horses. Today, JHS operates a small breeding operation and develops a few quality prospects a year.
