Jennifer Tosch is the KyEHC’s farm manager. She started out as a volunteer in the summer of 2007 and was the first person to adopt a horse from the center: Tibby, an Appendix Quarter Horse, once ponied racehorses. He was brought to the KyEHC after incurring a bowed tendon. Today, he is a happy trail horse.
Jennifer’s was introduced to the world of horses, particularly Arabians, at a young age. “My dad trained when I was younger,” she says. “I started out showing Arabs in hunt seat and did a little jumping. I also traveled with some Arabian show farms and showed a little myself in western pleasure and English pleasure. I showed all through high school, did 4-H and FFA, and did a lot of horse judging. I’m now active in the Bluegrass Arabian Horse Association.”
To potential volunteers, Jennifer says, “Come out once or twice and give it a try. There are a lot of people who want to help out but don’t realize how much there is to do. There is always a place for everybody who wants to volunteer.”
