Jenko is an 8 year old, 15 hh registered Quarter Horse gelding. He is with us for training from the MSSPA. Jenko rides in English or Western tack and has lovely gaits. This sweet boy trailers, ties, bathes, and is quiet to work around in the barn. Jenko is learning how to stay soft, balanced and steady under saddle and is looking for an experienced rider to continue with his education.
Jenko has made steady progress during his time in training. We have worked on teaching him how to use his hind end, soften over the back, and bend through his body. While with us, Jenko has gone on several trips off property to the Camden Hills, the local fairgrounds, and to an overnight clinic at Piper Ridge Farm with Brian and Luke Neubert. Jenko not only enjoys having a job in the area but will happily hack out on the trails alone or with a friend. Jenko is a truly versatile horse that could excel in many different ways at many jobs or disciplines. However, we do think the western world seems to be his calling.
Jenko is a truly one of a kind horse with loads of personality and potential. With the right person he could be a lot of fun and extremely successful. Jenko is looking for a forever home that will be able to continue his training and give him the consistent work that he needs. This horse is a fun, forward ride and has loads of potential to go in any direction with the right partner. If you are interested in Jenko please fill out an application on the MSSPA’s website.
UPDATE: We are thrilled to announce that Jenko has been adopted! He is off to New Hampshire to continue with his education in Western pleasure and trails, and we couldn’t be happier. We wish the best of luck and many wonderful years together to Jenko and his new mom, Stephanie. Congratulations!
