I used to live basically across the street from Jensen Stables on Turk Hill Road and my parents would always walk me across and let me feed the horses apples and carrots. I used to want to ride there, but sadly we moved away, across the country, just before I turned 7 (you had to be 7 to take lessons)

I was just wondering if it was still running or how it was doing.. I have so many pictures from when I was little there.. I even remember a few of the horses.. Ghost and Love were my favorite!

It's no longer Jensen Stables. It's JLD Equine. The Duncan's bought it.

I used to ride there, from 1991-2000. I have a lot of fond memories of the old lesson horses :yes:. Neet & Watson are actually still there.

It's so funny how you remember the lesson horses from your childhood. I still recall Maverick and Sandpiper at one place, and Freckles and Cinnamon Stick at another barn.

My math skills are not advanced enough to count all the people who learned to ride on those four horses! :)

I too got my up-down start at Jensens many moons ago... I'll never forget trying to keep Sugar or Justin away from the wall of hay. Or my first canter on Breezy. I couldn't for the life of me tell you who my instructor was, but I remember the horses. Very funny how that works.

There's a Facebook group somebody made specifically for the lesson horses of the 90's from Jensens. If you have Facebook, you should check it out! https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001081207589

It has tons of pictures of Lily, Gemini, Sugar, Whiskey, Charlie, Justin, Petey, Teddy, Ghost, Winston, Watson, Jasmine, Silver, Goody, Toscano, Cherokee.....:sadsmile:

Just for kicks....I have 3 pictures scanned on my PC from my lesson back in November of 1991. I was on Sugar in the first 2 (also includes Joker & Breezy, can't make out the other 2). I was on Witch in the 3rd, that was taken at a lesson show in April of 1992 (also includes Sugar, Whiskey, Katie, & Shug).
