Jessica and Scott both started training their own horses when they were 14 years old. They have continued on with this passion on the side and breed a few mares or buy weanlings, raise and then train the offspring for personal competition horses (Cowhorse), prospective lesson horse replacements or sale. Jessica usually starts all the 2.5 year old prospects in the winter (Dec-March) when lessons are not happening. Occasionally they will take an outside horse or two to start if requested, but it is not a normally offered service. If you are interested in putting a horse in training with Jessica, you can contact her at 306-380-3055. See below some pics of the current and past horses in training. These horses go on to be lesson prospects, show horses or sold. I have also added and update of where each horse is now!
2023 Colts Started
This summer, I decided I liked having Dec off from starting colts, so I decided to start all three colts/geldings mid August. One of my good friends, Charlena Robinson started her first 2 year old under my guidance that she bred and raised! She was over the moon with the results. And my other good friend Brenda Kwaitkowski continued her training with her 3 year old Spur and even got her first couple rides on him. It was an epic three weeks of comradery and women building women at Wruck Riding Centre!

2022/2023 Colts/Fillies Started
Jessica started 2, 2 year olds in Sept of 2022 (June and McGregor) and assisted two students (Hannah and Rhys) in starting their two year old fillies as well. It was a busy fall! Then Jessica started another two 2.5 year olds in January 2023 (Henrietta and Gem). June will be ridden and then used in the broodmare band later on, and Henrietta is slated for the WRC lesson program. Both geldings may enter in the lesson program or may be offered for sale later on! Training horses continues to be one of Jessica's greatest challenges (along with raising children!) and professional development. Young horses keep her humble and ever learning !
JT Lady in Red (Henrietta):
JT Peps Gun Smoke X Roses Bay Lady
Update: Henrietta is still growing and stands 15.3Hh and is inline to becoming a lesson horse in the future!
FQH Chex in the mail (McGregor):
Chexboonsmal X Factory Cat
Update: We sold McGregor to a great family in Sept 2024
Addies Last Light (June): Boonlights Shinning X Smart Silver Addie
Update: June has proven to be an energetic horse and won't likely make the lesson program, but will be used as a broodmare in the future!
JT Silverman (Gem): Docs Silver Bonanza X JT Miss Mally
Update: unfortunantly Gem was diagnosed with high ring bone and will require surgery to be sound and useable.
Hannah and Malibu
Rhys & Rio
2021/2022 Colts & fillies Started
We started four 2.5 year old of ours and one for a dear friend, Brenda Kwaitkowski! A true commitment and labor of love and a bit of humble pie all wrapped up into cold winter months. Always made warmer by good horses and amazing friends and family!
Upate: Harriet is 4 and is being rode and is enroute to go into the lesson program in the fall of 2024!
Harriet is slated to be a replacement lesson horse. Harriet comes from Diamond K Ranch. We have had several wonderful horses from the Kings! Every year we hope that one horse will be a lesson horse prospect and this year this is our girl!
