Jenko is an 8 year old, 15 hh registered Quarter Horse gelding. He was sent to us in collaboration with the MSSPA, where he had been evaluated under saddle. Jenko rides English or Western and is solid at walk /trot, though is still green at the canter. This sweet boy trailers, ties, bathes, and is quiet to work around in the barn. He has lovely gaits and will be looking for a more experienced rider who can continue with his training.
Jenko is really starting to progress well here. Though he is still green he is starting to become more sensible and solid under saddle everyday. We have worked with him a lot on using his hind end, softening into the bridle, shoulder control, and bending through his body. Jenko has also taken a couple trips off property to the Camden Hills, the local fairgrounds, and to an overnight clinic at Piper Ridge Farm with Brian and Luke Neubert, and he handled each scenario like a champ. Jenko still gets a little nervous out on the trails and enjoys having a friend to accompany him. We hope with more miles and confidence he will continue to improve. Jenko is a very fun ride, with loads of potential to go in any direction, and we feel he would be a great partner for an experienced rider. We have really enjoyed watching him progress here, but we look forward to helping him find his new home soon. If you are interested in Jenko feel free to check out his page on the MSSPA's website.
