Jennifer Tosch, barn manager of the KY Equine Humane CenterJennifer 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. 

As manager, Jennifer is charged with overseeing and training volunteers, interviewing potential adopters, and of course, taking care of the horses’ daily needs. 

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.”
