Lara Jackson joined the Banning family about 10 years ago. Lara has been horseback riding since she was about 8 years old. About 20 years ago, Lara took her passion for horseback riding and opened Sandhill Trails located in West Georgia. Currently, Lara owns approximately 30 horses. Her area of expertise lies with training of horses. When asked why Lara came to Banning as our Wrangler she said “For the peace and solitude. Navigating the trails on horseback gives me the opportunity to take a stroll back in history at Banning. The historic artifacts are simply amazing. Couple that with the experience of meeting new people and opening their eyes to the art of horseback riding, each ride is truly a pleasure at Banning.” We thank Lara for being a part of our team!
