Hey. Been a few months since I bought Tyke from you. You
have probably heard this a million times but just wanted to
give you some feedback on the sale. I AM HAVING A BLAST!!
I was sooooo very nervous buying a horse from the
internet without ever ridden her. Most of my decision to try
buying one from you was from others telling me about their
experience and horses they had gotten from you. After
watching her (Tyke) video a million times and our countless
texts back and forth and phone calls I finally took the
plunge. My friends thought I was a little crazy doing it.
Nervous as heck waiting for her to show up in Ohio. When she
stepped off the trailer...wow what a beauty!
After a few rides on her I had to go back to my cutting
friend for some lessons on how to hang on! Wow. I love cow
sorting but my friend, after riding her and seeing her work,
told me I was wasting talent and should take her to the show
pen. Rode her in a jackpot in Kentucky and took home a 2nd
place check. Rode her in Michigan RSNC in an open class
against the best in a 3 man 2 gate. After 10 runs (5 teams
first go round and 5 teams in the callback) only one cow
ever got by her in the gate. Many folks at the RSNC event
commented how beautiful she was and that I was riding a rock
Can't wait to have some fun at the Congress Super Sort
coming up in a few weeks.
Thank you so much again for selling me a great horse! I
am having the time of my life!
Happy in Ohio,
I'm so happy with my new pony! He rode in 6 divisions
this weekend and tried his heart out in each one. I couldn't
have won without him tonight, or any of these past wins. In
just 2 months he's made $5,000! A huge thank you to Jared
Lesh and Sarah Parrish Lesh for selling me such a quality
Hi Sarah just wanted to say thanks again for matching me
and angel. We had an awesome year together. We ended up with
a reserve high point at regionals and nationals, mixed
feelings on those, an Ohio state championship and high$$
horse in Michigan. Thanks again.
We want to send a huge thank you to Jared and Sarah Lesh!
We highly recommend them and their horses to any level rider
in the team penning and team sorting world! We just recently
bought four amazing open level horses to replace what we
thought were our once in a lifetime horses but we were
proved wrong! We bought these horses without riding them so
it was based strictly off of the videos and the amazing
communication with Sarah and Jared. They were 100% honest
and represented all four horses to a tee! These horses
already are taking us consistently to the pay windows! They
most definitely are inproving our game and making us stand
out as competitors . Most every show we have attended we
have had fellow competitors complimenting us on our new
horses. We can't say enough about how happy we are and if
anyone has any doubts about purchasing a horse sight unseen
or a high dollar cowhorse please look us up on facebook! We
would love to share more of our story and wonderful
experience about buying horses from an amazing family! We
will most definitely be return customers!
owners of four amazing JL cowhorses!

Hi guys just wanted to let you know Logan (trainer)
showed that mare we call Rumors now and scored a 71 and took
home a check this weekend. He said she is a legit cutter and
worth every penny we spent on her. Thank you for selling a
As for Peenk, she is fitting in awesome and we are loving
her. She settled right into our herd and is quickly becoming
our top horse. We can't thank you enough for your
exceptional service and communication. We will certainly be
back for more and recommend you to anyone looking. If you
ever make it to Montana you have a place to stay over
Matt & Kris Lane
My wonderful husband, Malik Hegge, bought "Smooth as
Slash" from you last October. I love him. Mr Smooth,
as we call him, and I had a great weekend sorting in
Douglas, Wyoming. He is such a nice horse. Thank you!
Just wanted to send y'all an email saying that I couldn't
be happier with my purchase of Cats Top Shot!!! He is such a
blast to ride & I have pushed myself on him. I'm now
confident to hold the gate which is a major step for me. He
is so smooth & loving!!! Went to the RSNC state finals &
made it to the top 50 out of 250 teams, which made me proud
of myself & boosted my riding confidence!!! Thank you so
much again for helping me find my perfect match!!! I will
continue to buy from y'all in the future!!!
I just wanted to write you a quick update on
Bill (son of SanTule Freckles), the horse I purchased from
you last spring. Not only is this horse loaded with cow and
a powerhouse in the gate (it's my favorite position now) but
he is incredibly versatile, athletic, honest and kind. I can
win money on him sorting one weekend, practice mounted
shooting with him the next, take him through the mountains
and use him for ranch work and also run a smoking barrel
pattern. My daughter uses Bill for high school rodeo in cow
cutting, and my son (beginner rider) uses him for 4H
(barrels, poles, western pleasure, etc.) To top it all off,
Bill is a total sweetheart and has no vices (just like you
said). I have never owned a horse of this caliber before,
and am so grateful that you found the perfect match for me
and my family.
First of all I just want to tell you that Zeke is the most
perfect horse for me. I don't want to change a thing about
him and we have absolutely bonded. I'm having the time of my
life with him and I have just started feeling healthy enough
to sort on him. I took him to our first RSNC show this
weekend and we won the 10 class and made the finals in every
other class we went in. He is teaching me a ton. I love how
honest and broke he is. I've been using him to pony colts
and have ridden him bareback. He is so FUN!
Thank you, Jared and Sarah Lesh for the purchase of the
horse sweeney. Jared and Sarah answered my e-mail right away
and answered all my questions about the mare. She was every
thing they said and more she is a great horse. Every where I
have taken her everyone says how pretty she is. I won my
first sorting with her and placed third at my next one, she
has really taken my sorting to a higher level. I plan on
breeding her when I have finished sorting with her.
Thank You very much,
David Dewey Sheridan Wy.
Update... Autumn is simply amazing... 3 rides and it's
love...she loves her cows and her kisses. Thank you from the
bottom of our hearts.. Another perfect pony you matched us
up with. Just had to say she's awesome.
Shawville, QC Canada

perfect for me! OMG have these two boys been fun. The cutter
trainers are so excited they are trying to get me show with
them. Ha. Ha. Thank you for everything You've made one ole
lady's life so fun.
Hi Sarah, it's Stacy Price, I was at your place 2 weeks
ago and bought the Smart Little Pistol mare. She has given
me back all the confidence I had lost, she is just super. We
rode really well together at a show yesterday. I wouldn't
trade her for anything. Also I wanted to thank both you and
Jared for the time and hospitality. Thank you again I now
have a super horse I click with!
My little Ichi boy is a real good pairing. I'm having so
much fun with him! I knew there was no question but to come
to you for a quality horse but more, you were just great to
deal with: thanks for making this purchase such a good
So yes I just say: "I went to Jared's!!!"
Took him to cutter trainer to work on flag : SO fun!!!
He wants to show him. Ha. Ha
Ichi is so different than
the High Brow Hickory mare I have it has really expanded me
as a rider. I'm so excited. Thanks for being so nice to
me!!! I'm just a little ole lady trying to learn to ride.
Hi Sarah and Jared
Just wanted to drop you a line and
say that Im having a lot of fun on the horse I purchased
from you in November, he is a great match and was exactly
what I was looking for. Ive had a lot of compliments and
praise while riding this gelding, he has tons of heart and
although his talent is above my riding skill he is remaining
honest and my riding skills have improve so much. I look
forward to returning to your farm in the very near future
and continue to promote your name.
Sorry it has taken so long but I wanted to drop you a
line about that horse I purchased from you. He is Awesome!
He is what I was looking for and I am happy to own him.
Thanks for the help and arranging everything from finding
him to getting him here.
My wife and I can't thank you
enough and we hope to make it down to one of your shows at
some point this year. Thanks again!
Just wanted to say we couldn't be happier with our 3 JL
Kapow has been a great all around horse, good
with the kids and has no problem with any of our mistakes.
He's the same horse every ride and rides to his rider. Loves
He has a really cool style, sorting and cutting.
The kids all call him Kachow (lighting McQueen) they hand
all over him.
Twist is easy going, fun and a pleasure to
be around! He loves his job and very good at it. He also
rides to his rider and no surprises, he's the same guy very
day! Really teaching us how to soften down and is also very
forgiving. What a huge stop, better be sitting on your
butt!!!! Lots of compliments when we haul this guy.
Oliver is a beauty! Can't go any place without someone
He is super playful (chased me with a stick)
sweet and loves attention. He is so quiet on cattle and
really loves his job. He has taken a liking to our son,
always licking him and putting his chin on our son's
shoulder . I think I may loose this one to my kid. Olive
packs him around and he even works "people" on him!
worked the sack today and I'm even more in love :-)
won the 8 class together on Twist and Oliver our first time
out with 68 teams. A friend who has only sorted a handful of
times (but she penns ) rode Kapow and I on Oliver and we
placed 6th out of 85 .....
Thanks again Jared And Sarah.
The horses are exactly what you said they would be and more.
Problem is I don't have room for anymore!!!
I just wanted to thank you for sending me a great horse.
Star is exactly what I was looking for!! We are doing great
together. She is a blast to ride and very easy to get along
with. I appreciate everything you did to get her here. Hope
you and your family have a great Christmas.
In March of 2013, my husband and I started looking for an
‘open caliber’ horse to take me to the next level in sorting
and penning. We had heard about and seen several JL horses
getting the job done, so we started studying the horses that
Sarah and Jared had for sale on their website. After finding
a couple that peaked our interest, we contacted Sarah and
explained what we were looking for. She was very thorough in
learning what kind of rider I was and what type of horse I
was looking for. She chose a couple of horses that she
thought would be a good fit, and I studied their videos and
then followed up with questions. Sarah was very good about
answering all our questions honestly. Living in eastern
Iowa, we couldn’t just run down and pick the horse up, so
she was shipped up to us within a week. ‘Punky’ aka ‘Annie’
was everything she said she was!
Now it’s September
2013, we decide that a second JL horse would be an asset to
both Brett and me. Brett contacted Sarah and she told us
what she had. We were very impressed by her ability to
remember the ins and outs of the first mare we purchased,
and compare each horse to her. Once again, we made the
purchase over the phone and had ‘Bailey’ shipped to us. She
was in good shape and just as Sarah had represented her.
Brett has already fallen in love with her and won two checks
on her a week after she arrived!
The ability to
trust Jared and Sarah Lesh to send us quality horses just as
they represent them, from over 700 miles away is a
tremendous asset to us. We haven’t personally met Jared and
Sarah yet, but know they are good people, and can’t wait to
Brett and Kristie Maxwell
Had outstanding rides by the best horse I've ever owned.
Dmac Bunnys Gun. We were 3rd in the Masters out of 52 teams,
2nd in the #13 mixed class out of 88 teams, 2nd in the #10
class out 96 teams, and won the first round in the round
robin on Sunday. We won over $1,900 total. Thank you Sarah
Lesh for selling me this awesome horse who has given me the
ride of a lifetime.
Sarah and Jared … Thank you again for a fun weekend at the
JL ranch. Your show was great and we are so excited about
Sydney’s new horse, Rascal. He is the 7th horse we have
bought from you and, judging from Sydney’s 3 World
Championship saddles and all the buckles and prize money won
by our family …. our decision to buy horses from you has
been a great investment!! If anyone is considering
purchasing a horse from you and wants a referral, send them
my way. Horse shopping with you guys is always a great
experience and I will happily brag about your generous
mentoring of youth and beginner riders and uncanny ability
to match horse and rider. Sydney did not think she would get
along with Rascal, but you insisted that she compete on him
and you were right. They were a great match … winning 3
checks together before we even purchased him. We took him to
an RSNC the next weekend and they won the #10 class. They
got along so well, people couldn’t believe that she’d only
been riding him for one week. And our other JL horses have
been just as good of a fit. I especially want to thank you
for your service after the sale. I’ve had people brag about
getting “great deals” on penning horses from other sources,
but when things don’t work out or the buyer has a question,
the seller is long gone or not helpful. The way you stand
behind your horses and work with and help buyers after the
sale is a rare and VALUABLE service in the horse industry …
and one of the many reasons that we will keep coming back to
you for horses and keep sending people your way for horses.
We would not be where we are in this sport without
your talented horses and support and we really appreciate
it. Every time I look at the horses for sale on your
website, I want to add another one. We just need a bigger
Hi Sarah / Jared,
I rode Justin last night at a
practice sorting (with wild cows). WOW, I just hung on and
went for a ride. He knows what he is doing and is great at
it. I couldn't stop smiling / laughing and I'm sure people
thought I was drunk. He is a great athlete and good natured
horse that will teach me how to sort In a much faster gear
(which I love). I was told by some people that they were
going to go buy some JL horses also. Thanks for matching me
with another great horse.
"Where to begin?! I purchased my first JL horse a little
bit over a year ago but due to a move was forced to sell and
I thought I would no longer be able to compete, I was wrong.
I was devastated that I wasn’t going to be able to compete
for my last year in the Sr. youth but Jared and Sarah has
made it not only possible but beyond enjoyable by letting me
rent their horses throughout the year. So not only am I able
to ride, I’m able to ride some of the finest cow horses in
the nation! The generosity that these two have is out of
this world. I have grown so much as a rider and none of it
would’ve been without their time, patience, and incredible
skill. They have not only helped open doors for me but
opened their home to me on several occasions. If you want to
be surrounded by not only the best horses in the business
but the best people as well, look no further. I will forever
be in debt to Jared and Sarah and am beyond blessed to have
them in my corner. To say I’m excited for the day I buy
myself another JL horse is an understatement, I am proud and
honored to ride for the brand."
Many thanks for the honesty and
integrity you have shown in the two transactions we have
I purchased a Smooth as a Cat mare back in 2012
that was very talented and won several checks including 2nd
at the Congress Regional in OHIO.
I enjoy new horses
and I spotted an own son of CD Olena and out of a Dual
Pepmare on Jared's website that is absolutely beautiful and
loaded with talent. I contacted Jared about trading my mare
back to him and he was very receptive and he represented the
Dual Pep son to perfection. We traded over the phone both
times and Jared made trucking accommodations almost
I named my Dual Pep son "Sting Ray" and
he is definitely that. Big motored, smart, extremely cowy,
can sit on his back legs like a german shepard dog and
really fun to ride. I hope to have many more trades and
purchases with Jared in the future.
Jared and Sarah Lesh, we owe our accomplishments to
y'all's stock, lessons, help, and encouragement since we
have started! Thank you so much for everything you all do!
Riding for the brand and making the best memories ever! JL!
California finals were rescheduled this weekend because
of rain , so we went to the ocean instead ! He walked right
in :) and was perfect the whole ride . He can sort and penn
one day , beach the next , then hung on by the kids at a
play day .... He's a great horse and we are proud to own him
! He won't be our last JL horse ! Have a happy and safe new
Good Morning Sarah,
Making the decision to go to Texas and try out a horse from
Jared & Sarah Lesh is a “No Brainer”.
If you want to improve your game Jared & Sarah have a
fantastic knowledge and the gift for matching people to
horses. I bought shortcake a High Brow Cat mare. She is
brilliant, well bred, well trained & pretty. I’m very proud
of her. When other penners come up to me and say what a good
horse, what a pretty horse I get the biggest grin, I am so
happy with my purchase. It is cool to have a “Roadster” that
other people admire! I’m thrilled with my purchase and I’m
looking forward to an awesome penning season.
Thank You Jared & Sarah, I will be recommending you to any
of my fellow penners who are looking for an upgrade.
Jared & Sarah
Thanks guys for recommending two of the best horses I have ever had the
pleasure of owning! I called Jared in January and told him what I was
looking for. After watching this horse (Timmy) on video I purchased him over
the phone based on the Lesh's reputation. Since his arrival I have been
nothing short of pleased. He is awesome and is everything they said and
more. At every show people approach me to comment on his performance. After
riding Timmy for 9 months and boosting my game and RSNC winning I again
called on Jared and Sarah to help find a second horse compatible with Timmy.
I watched a video of Summer- another great horse they recommended and
purchased her. This time I drove to Whitesboro Texas to meet the Lesh's in
person. I made two good friends while out there and came home with Summer.
At her first RSNC show and along with Timmy, they took two 1st, a 3rd and
4th place. I know when I buy my next horse it will be from Jared and Sarah.
Sarah & Jared, Harry & I wanted to extend our sincere
appreciation for the hospitality and kindness that you
provided during our recent visits! Your expertise and
guidance was invaluable and your relaxed, open, honest, and
forthright approach to business was a wonderful experience.
Sue and Dino have worked out great for us! We are so excited
to have them. In the short time that we have had them, Sue
has already placed first in a sorting and fifth in a round
robin. Dino has also won a first place in a sorting. Thanks
so much for all your help and guidance! You both have built
a terrific reputation for the JL brand and we now understand
Harry & Renee Leach
Wow, is about all I can say. What a great horse and a
perfect match. She is everything you said she was and so
much more. We had her home for 2 days rested her up and off
to a 2 day jack pot. What a ride, and bring home the pay
checks in penning and sorting was so much fun.
So anyone out there looking for a great horse and honest
people to buy from look no further. They are everything that
the write up said, and the video showed. Just ask questions
and Jared and Sarah will be there to answer, quickly.
We bought a horse from Jared and Sarah, by looking at the
videos.. I must say a lot of people thought i was crazy, but
now can't wait to do it again in the spring.. Look out I'm
Thank you soooo much
Roy & Jennifer Childs
Shawville, Quebec Canada
I board with Roy Sattler and he brought Hollywood back
last weekend. I just wanted to thank you, he is beautiful
and I think we will make a great pair. He is a dream to ride
and will make me push myself to ride up to his level. I look
forward to coming over to your place to get a lesson on him
7th Heaven Ranch, Louisiana
Just wanted to give a big thanks to Jared and Sarah Lesh
at the JL Cowhorses for matching me up with a horse of a
lifetime. She is the prettiest and most athletic horses i
have ever owned. She put me in the money in every class I
rode in at the Fred Bray ranch on Saturday and I took home a
paycheck. I can't say enough good things about these people.
They have been the most honest people I have dealt with yet.
If you want a horse to put you in the pay window, then don't
waste your time and give them a call. Also wanted to thank
Joann Nichols and Miss Sue Edwards for referring me to them!
I love my pony.....
Lake Arthur, LA
Sarah and Jared: Thanks so much for the hospitality you
extended to me during my visit while Linda was horse
shopping. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at your beautiful
facility. It had only been a year and half since my previous
visit and I was astounded by the changes you have made.
Sarah, I hope you realize what an inspiration you are to
women involved in horses, but more so to women involved in
business. You have taken the JL brand and made it a
household name in penning, sorting and cowhorses. I observed
you from riding horses, riding with people, mentoring young
people, taking care of your family, and running a business
all in a day's work! Jared, your involvement is a major part
of the JL success as well, but looking through a woman's
eyes who taught high school students for 30 years, I can
appreciate a hard working, business minded, talented young
woman. YOU BOTH HAVE THE WORLD BY THE TAIL. Congratulations,
best wishes and many thanks.
I wanted to write a reference and let you know that Mario is doing great. He
is settling in to his new home and getting along well with the other horses.
I like him more every day which is not always the case when buying a horse.
I had a chance to take him to a sorting practice this past week and he was
the highlight of the practice. After the first four runs it felt like we had
been riding together for months. I felt like he was reading my mind. He was
able to bust up groups of four to five calves and come out with the one we
wanted. What a joy to have the privilege to ride such a fine horse.
We met another rider who owns a "Lesh" horse and I can only imagine that it
is like one Harley Davidson rider meeting another. There is a instant
understanding that this person values quality. Thanks again for your
assistance in this process. I have a feeling this won't be the last horse I
buy from you guys.
We were introduced to Jared and Sarah at the RSNC finals
in 2010. After seeing the quality of horses they had and
speaking with them, we were interested in a JL horse as our
first sorting horse. We checked their website occasionally
and kept in touch via email on several horses. One night I
was looking at the website and my husband saw a horse at the
bottom of the page that caught his eye. He liked "Tina’s"
look and the description of her. I spoke to Sarah and my
husband flew out to Texas to check her out. Upon his arrival
in February of 2011, he was introduced to the worst ice
storm in a decade. Over two days, he tried several horses in
less than perfect Texas weather and “Tina” was the one he
liked the best. Sarah and Jared were very accommodating and
went above and beyond to make his experience at JL Ranch an
enjoyable one. We changed Tina’s name to Lena and she has
turned out to be a great little mare. She is everything
Sarah said she was. There was nothing hidden, even the not
so great qualities. We couldn’t be happier with Lena and the
service we received from Jared and Sarah, who have always
been available to answer any questions. My husband and I
currently ride the same horse, and she has done a wonderful
job stepping up for him and stepping down for me at every
show. Since we have purchased Lena, we haven't had the
opportunity to sort as much as we would have liked to, but
we have won many checks and a few belt buckles on her in a
short amount of time. We have sent a few people to Jared and
Sarah for a horse and the ones that have purchased horses
have been very satisfied with their horse and the experience
they had at JL Ranch. We will be in the market again soon
for another horse and we will definitely check with Jared
and Sarah first. Thanks again for all of your support on
finding the right horse for us and getting her back to
Florida, as well as all of your advice and help at
Thanks again, and we look forward to our next purchase
Jason and Lorri Jones
My horse is Mason. I bought him from Jared and Sarah Lesh
last summer. I love this horse. Not only is he a sorting and
penning machine, but I can climb on the fence and jump on
him bareback with just a halter and go for a trail ride. He
is worth his weight in GOLD!!! Thank you guys so much!
Sarah / Jared,
I just wanted to say thanks. The “ Harrison Horse” I
recently purchased from you has been a great fit, I’m doing
great on him and he fits my riding style perfect. Thanks for
listening to my needs, seeing my riding style, and matching
him to me. He is a great horse and a pleasure to own. I feel
Jared Lesh Cow Horses offers the total package – knowledge
and experience, great horses, wonderful facilities, and
overall a pleasurable experience.
Just wanted to let you know that I love Twist and he is
doing great. Just got to pen on him at a 3 day clinic last
weekend and he was great and I got a ton of compliments
about how good my new horse was and how well I seemed to be
getting along with him. He has definitely been everything
you told me he would be. Also, Rob has absolutely fallen in
love with him and he only wants to get a horse from you guys
when we get him a horse. Thanks again.
Jared & Sarah, We want to thank you for all your
hospitality and kindness. We sincerely appreciate all the
time you took with us looking at your horses. We are very
excited about the new grey gelding and I love my new saddle!
Randy & Alison
Just wanted to drop you a note and tell you Thank You for
a great clinic. I would highly recommend your clinic to
anyone of any riding level. Anyone can learn something from
Jared. Very impressed. I WILL BE BACK FOR ANOTHER CLINIC!
You and Jared made me feel as part of the group, and
appreciate being invited to do things with you guys. I
learned a lot and am very excited about putting it to use…
you and Jared gave me more confidence in competing at a
higher level. Hope you do well at the show in San Antonio.
Thank you again for making me feel at home there…
Just wanted you to know about PB and how happy I am with
him and how much I appreciate what you and Jared have done
with me. You were so right when you showed him to me: He is
a good soldier and he has a good heart! He has been tolerant
of my inexperience and has allowed me to learn and make
mistakes. Every time I have fallen (3), he has come back to
get me after he got the cow as if to say, “What are you
doing down there?” You have had a couple of opportunities to
sell me another horse and both times your guidance steered
me in the right direction. You have been truthful and kind
and helpful. The blue roan that I loved is the best example
of your honesty. That would have been a train wreck for me.
I can still hear you telling me that he was really an “open
rider’s horse”: And I thank Jared for telling me at a show
at your place that he thought we (PB and I) were a good
PB and I are doing great. He is always ready to go though he
definitely has some attitude about things he is always more
than willing and always has a nibble on my ear for me.
Probably not what some would want but I love it. Though
there is no JL on his butt, you should know that he always
performs and I always hear both yours and Jared’s words of
wisdom about him. You encouragement and your offering of an
“open draw” at your shows means a lot to all of us trying to
hone our skills.
This is just to say thank you so much! Being in sales
myself, I always want to know when a client is appreciative
and how I can make their experience better the next time.
Unfortunately, for you, this means I will not be buying a
horse in the near future but you can bet I will always send
people your way when I can. You guys are the best!
For those that know us we penned quite a bit in the late 90' and early
2000's and during that time we did well but life got in the way and we had
to pull back up until late into the season last year. Wanting to get back in
the game and needing to get mounted again we approached Sarah and Jared to
start looking . For those who ever have started this process , Sarah and
Jared go way out of their way to match the horse and rider and not only that
they follow up on how you are doing afterwards again and again with true
genuine interest. This is something you just don't see every day and
therefore very much appreciated. One other thing I have noticed is due to
this interest in you that they also spend alot of time coaching and since we
were out of the game for awhile this was ever so important in coming back in
as the game had changed so much. I am not sure how much progress Sarah and
Jared would say I have made my ability to listen but they seem to be
satisfied the Julie is progressing. So far we have bought two horses one for
Julie and one for myself and I must say both Julie and I are just so
impressed with the quality of them and just how well they fit us. Under
Sarah's wing Julie has really stepped up her game and has not failed to win
money on Rio yet at any show. I am not sure who is more excited for Julie
but Julie certainly has gained her confidence back and when she goes into
the arena she knows she can compete. Julie knows she has her new found
friend taking care of her. It so amazing on how well they do together , Rio
seems a part of Julie and Julie a part of him. My horse Kippie is just plain
and simple one of the best horses I have ever rode and not only that she is
absolutely gorgeous. My old horse had lost quite a few steps and after
seeing how well Julie was doing plus the fact that Julie was not going to
let me ride her horse I called Sarah and Jared and said me too I need one
and boy did they find one. Now there is a whole story that goes along with
the first time I saw Kippie but I know we need to keep some room for others
to comment. I feel as she is a part of me and I had a chance to ride her in
Denver in competition for the first time this year and I came away from that
show knowing I can do this again and I can be competitive . We did very well
together with our teammates in several classes and we were also able to make
it to the top 10 twice in the 11 thus riding in the PBR intermission , what
a hoot that was! This just wouldn't have happened with out her and I would
have not met Kippie with out Sarah and Jared . I read some of the other post
and we agree Sarah and Jared are GOOD people , they are good friends , they
freely help others and give back so much into this sport , they have
integrity in the deals they make and we agree that folks that are looking
need to call them and go see them. While you are there you will see and
experience the selection of horses and the gracious hospitality that
everyone talks about. You will also meet Whitney who is quite a hand as well
in her own right and a member of their team. Thank you Sarah, Jared and
Bob and Julie Strenge
Hey Sarah, Just wanted to let you know how much I
appreciate your skill/ability to match a rider with a horse.
It’s amazing how you do this!!! I got on a horse for the
first time in January of 2011. When I came to you guys in
November of 2011, you matched me perfectly with a GREAT
mare!!!! In just three months, I have now won two checks. I
am lovin this!!!! I will definitely be back to get another
one from you!!! You guys are AWESOME!!!!!
They say Mother knows best, but when it comes to putting
the right horse under you Jared and Sarah know best! Sarah
showed me a horse and I didn't like his looks so I picked a
different horse to try. Well needless to say I fell off that
horse, continued trying a few others, and as you can guess I
ended up buying the horse she tried to get me to ride in the
first place! They are very PATIENT! Another satisfied
customer riding a JL branded horse!
Thanks for your help!
In April of 2011 I was on my way to a USTPA Show in
Duncan, Oklahoma and I decided to give Jared a call to see
if I could stop by and ride some horses. I had bought a
horse on my own a few months before and learned a valuable
lesson. When I arrived Jared and Sarah had about seven
horses saddled and ready for me to try. I spent several
hours trying each horse on cattle in the arena and sorting
pens. Sarah watched me ride each horse and knowing my
limited riding skills she helped me narrow it down to two
horses. I chose a 5 year old Dunn Gelding that has energized
my penning career. In just ten months I have won more money
than the horse cost not to mention a new Todd Jeys saddle
and a big win at the 2012 National Western Stock Show in
Denver, Colorado. Jared and Sarah's help didn't stop at the
purchase of the horse. They continue to offer advice and
answer questions still today. I attended all 5 shows they
had at JL Arena in 2011 and they always make sure you feel
welcome and get all the rides you want.
Recipe to a winning team....In 2007 I decided that I would like to ride in
the AQHA World Show. So I called Jared and Sarah, I asked Jared if he would
put on a private clinic. I learned so much. Then I decided I wanted to
upgrade to a better horse, and my JL horse career started. I was hooked!!!!
Sarah has a gift to pair a rider and a horse together and make a great team
or should I say Winning team. To this day if I have trouble or need my team
re-tuned, they are there to help. They don't abandon you. I am proud and
honored to have them as friends. Although in the team penning and sorting
world, we are one big family. Their arena, hospitality and shows they put on
are wonderful. They treat you like family. You show up with no rides and let
them know and they will find you rides. They always make you feel welcome
and will thank you for coming. Thank you Jared and Sarah for all you do!!!!

I just wanted to thank you all for sharing your
horsemanship knowledge, be it penning, sorting, or just
everyday training tips, whether it is at a show, a clinic or
the barn. You both take the time to go out of your way to
help other people, whether they are customers or not. Truly
impressive, thank you!
Also, your 2011 AQHA shows and USTPA shows were some of the
best I have ever competed at and I have been team penning
team since 1994, so I do not say that lightly. Thank you for
on-time, well-run events.
Frank, 5-year-old AQHA gelding, qualified for 2011 AQHA
Select World in only two shows, in both penning and sorting.
I have won more in five months than I had won in the
previous two years.
Again, thank you.
My first trip down to Jared and Sarah's was for a
two day (penning/sorting) clinic. We had a great time,
learned so much, and got to ride a bunch of great horses.
Jared and spent so much time with each one of us teaching us
the "right and wrong" of penning and sorting. We were all
able to come home with a lot of new information and put it
to good use. If I lived closer I would be attending them a
lot more often!!
My second trip down was to purchase a horse, what impressed
me was how Sarah and Jared remembered exactly what kind of
horse I liked from when we were down there riding ONE YEAR
before, from the size of horse I liked, to the buttons I
liked on my soon to be new horse. Going there is NOT like
going to some other barns where you look through the horses
and you pretty much know the good ones from the bad, and
usually you only see one good one. When you go to
purchase a horse from Jared and Sarah its a tough because
there are so many good horses to choose from.
I spent 3 days there looking at numerous horses each day,
finally narrowed it down to 2 then the final day went back
AGAIN and made my decision. I rode each one of these horses
on cattle every day. They were very honest and very patient
with me. I would highly recommend them. I traveled from New
Jersey to purchase my horse from them and would do it again
in a heartbeat. The
other thing that really impressed me was that they didn't
just sell me the horse and say "see ya later" They called to
make sure the horse arrived safely, then even checked up to
see how we did at our first show and then AGAIN a few months
later. Any questions I had after she arrived from bits,
saddles, etc.. they were more then willing to answer at any
time. I could not be happier with my horse, she has done
very well for me and I look forward to continuing riding her
for many years to come. Thank you Sarah &
Jared and Sarah have been a blessing for us. They have treated us great. We
them what we were looking for, our riding style and price range and they
up a half dozen horses to try (out of about 50) they gave us some riding and
sorting tips to help step up our game. We now have three of their horses,
won first time out, the third we won the second time out. Where else can you
horses and results like that? Thank you very much. We will be back for our
horse, for sure!
Mike and Janet Begyn
Thank y'all so much for providing my dad with the horse
of his dreams! He rode him today and couldn't stop smiling!
After training a green horse, I think he forgot what it was
like to ride a good horse! Thanks again and hope we see
I appreciate the time Sarah and Jared have spent with me
on the purchase of my new horse Rose. I brought her home
after finals and had my first local competition on Rose a
couple of weeks later. We placed or won every class we
entered in penning and sorting except for two. She is an
awesome horse and a pleasure to ride. It is so nice to be
able to make precise moves on cattle. If you can’t tell I
just love her!!! Sarah has the skill to match horse and
rider and will take the time to answer any questions you may
have. I recommend the Leshs’ to anyone looking for a quality
competition horse at a fair price.

Our family first met Jared and Sarah in 2005, when they
came to Colorado and put on a clinic. We bought our first JL
horse from them at that time, since then we have purchased
several more horses. With all our travels and dealings we
have never heard a bad thing about any of the horses they
have sold, just many satisfied customers! We love all of the
JL horses that we have owned and currently own. I would like
to thank both Jared and Sarah for being GOOD people. They
have always been honest and upstanding people with us. I
think they truly are in the business for the right reasons
and enjoy what they do and it shows in their success. We
have spent a lot of time with Jared and Sarah at horse
shows, at their house and on vacation, they are truly GOOD
people and a lot of fun to be around. If you ever need an
outstanding horse for any discipline, at a good price head
to their place in Whitesboro. We guarantee you will leave
with an outstanding horse and memories you will never

I have a working class income and have gone to
Jared/Sarah for our penning/sorting horses for 6yrs now from
South California - long drive non-stop both ways for the
quality horses (the 'ol sayin get what u pay for is true).
Last trip I bought 2 horses and 2 weeks later went to the
Reno Rodeo Penning/Sorting and won 1st/3rd and 7th in
sorting - penning Pro/Am/Nov got 5th plus go round checks.
Jared's horses have stepped up our game to be top
competitors in our divisions and above. I believe they have
given me the best quality horse for my price range and fit
to our riding abilities to improve our performance.. I
STRONGLY recommend everyone to at least try their horses
(and look at any finals in your area and see the numerous JL
brand on the top 10 horses).
We were referred to Jared and Sarah after being referred
to other contacts and horses that left us unsatisfied. After
some conversations with them, we met at the Kalispell
Classic Penning show in Montana. Jared and Sarah had several
horses for us to try. Susan rode a CD O’Lena mare and I rode
a Dual Jazz gelding. With the intention of only purchasing
one horse, we bought them both. The training and athleticism
in the horses was outstanding. That weekend I picked up my
first cheque with Jazz and hadn’t even paid for him yet. We
were very satisfied that we had not only picked the right
horses but had met a couple that had a strong training and
horse program that would help any penner to their next
That summer I placed very high at the Calgary Stampede
penning and in the fall, won the Canadian Nationals 8
Shootout on Jazz. Susan continued to hit the pay window with
her teams on CD (Lacey).
As our skills and performance increased, and truth be told,
Susan’s fascination with Jared and Sarah’s horses, we became
very interested in the High Brow Cat horses. We talked with
Sarah often and we bought a High BrowCat daughter, Snappin
Kitty, in May 2010. We sold Jazz and Lacey to fellow penners
who continue to be successful on these Lesh horses. Susan
went on to win her first Hi-Point Championship title with
Kit Kat and continues competing at a very high level today.
In December 2010 we bought our second High Brow Cat daughter
from Jared and Sarah, Kat Hepburn. Katie was outstanding
from the get go. Her athleticism, attitude, knowledge, and
training were some of the best I have seen. In 2011, I again
placed very high at Calgary Stampede penning, won the
2010/2011 Hi-Point Champion season overall aggregate title
along with my wife Susan, and won the Canadian Nationals.
We have been so impressed with these fine horses that we
have just purchased another High Brow Cat mare, High Brow
Darlin’, from them to continue keeping us at the top of our
game. As we have total respect for Jared, Sarah and their
horses, we bought all three of these High Brow Cat mares,
sight unseen and over a phone call. We often get asked if
these horses are for sell so it is a very nice compliment
that not only do we own fine horses, but they are Jared and
Sound, Quality, Performance
These are just some of the standards Lesh horses have and
will take you to the pay window as well.

High River, Alberta, Canada.
In November 2010 I retired from the Police Department
after 30 years there. I had put my team penning and ranch
sorting aspirations on hold for about 11 years. By the time
I had retired my Bobby Atwood gelding was 26 years old. He
still has the heart but not the physical ability. I
contacted Jared and Sara Lesh first by e-mail and then later
by phone. I wanted a horse that was ready to go compete in
sorting and a horse that would fit my riding ability. Since
where I live in South Florida is not on the way to anywhere
I trusted Jared and Sara to select the horse and had it
shipped to me. They sent me a horse named Swinging to the
Beat he was perfect. I had him only one week and took him to
a sorting and was second in the #5 class and won money on
him. My son Tyler Smith started showing him too! He won the
beginner Ranch had on him at Linked D and at Prine Ranch.
And last month Tyler’s girlfriend won a belt buckle on him
in the beginner RH.
In February I started talking with Jared and Sara about
purchasing a second horse. This time the horse was for my
husband who had very little riding ability at the time. They
shipped me a horse named Smarty’s Scootinstyle. He was a
perfect match for my husband. My husband won a belt buckle
on him the very next month in the beginner ranch hand. He
also went out to the RSNC nationals and was 4th in the
Graduated Beginner RH #11 HC-296 teams and 8th in the
Graduated Rookie Sort-313 teams.
In May I had a mare named Last one to Dance shipped to me
just before the RSNC show. I had a chance to show her once
here and was in the money. At the RSNC show I ended up 6th
and 9th in the Graduated RH #11 HC-296 teams. And I was 8th
with my husband in the Graduated Rookie Sort-313 teams. Last
month I won the #7 class at Linked D with her.
In August I went out to Whitesboro, Texas in search of
another horse for my son Tyler as his horse had gotten sick
at the RSNC finals and was recuperating from surgery. There
were so many horses to ride and to choose from there. I
ended up purchasing a gelding named Prince of A Deal for
Tyler. This horse is so awesome. Tyler has improved so much.
He has won three belt buckles on him so far. And I am sure
this is just the beginning for them.
I can’t say enough about the quality of horses that Jared
and Sara has sold to our family. It has certainly made my
dream come true this year of riding horses with my family
and friends. Jared and Sara are super nice people and very
good at what they do!
Palm City, Florida
What do you say about someone who sells you the
horse of a lifetime? I’ve watched Jared grow from an ornery
little grandson with all of his brothers traveling with
their grandpa Hoss, and Sarah from a shy little girl out
riding the wind to the young leaders in our sport. It was a
natural choice to go to them for our horses. The last time I
went to purchase another JL horse after being in the sport
for 12 years, I told Sarah “I want to bump up my game”. She
looked at Jared with a gleam in her eye and said, “Im going
to show her The Mare”. She brought out a beautiful chestnut
mare and said “She will take you there”. Well Ellie, as she
is affectionately called now sure did. I took her home that
day without even riding her as I know Sarah has a God given
talent to match a rider to a horse. At our first show, The
National Western Stock Show in Denver Colorado, I won a
saddle and from there it was success after success. The
major wins include another National Western Stock Show win
in the Open the next year, a reserve USTPA National Finals
championship, a USTPA National Finals Championship, a
reserve year-end points award, and several wins in between.
This JL horse not only helped my confidence and skill level
she helped me to be consistent enough to move from a 2
novice to a 4 amateur in ratings in USTPA. So you see why I
get emotional talking about Ellie for she is truly a Horse
of a Lifetime. Thanks seems an inadequate word to say to
Jared and Sarah Lesh - the JL Brand- for they have become
more than a trusted business, they have become two people I
am proud to call my friends and are more like family.
We have purchased two very exceptional mares from
Jared and Sarah and that has been the
decision we have made. These mares have given me the
confidence to step up my game in the penning and the
sorting, and now I have moved from novice to amateur. Jared
and Sarah have spent countless hours to help me and have
always put me on great horses. I am especially grateful for
the clinic this past summer before the AQHYA world show
which helped me to achieve Reserve World Champion in team
penning. I am really looking forward to this next year
because with their help I am shooting for World Champion!
Thank you guys so much for believing in me and riding with
me and giving me the confidence I needed to become better.
|"BEST SHOW OF THE YEAR, 2011"
Highly Talented, Distinguished and Producers of
the Best Sorting & Penning Horses in the Industry today…
We are extremely honored and excited to produce this testimony. Great
Service and Products are cornerstones for success and
extremely important in our business today and it parallels
the same path in any other industry. But when we come across
and deal with businesses that are EXCEPTIONAL and produce a
special and everlasting impression, we want people to know
about it! They deserve it and so will you, “and let me tell
you – Jared and Sarah Lesh Cowhorses have exceeded our
expectation in all elements of the Cowhorse and the sport of
Sorting and Penning.” It was very fun for us to watch and
now own “Big Wheel Big Diehl” that won the 2010 AQHA World
Open Penning Championship with Jared! Jared and Sarah are
extremely professional in their dealings and stand behind
their words. Their horses are well trained, exceptional
bloodlines and possess a high degree of intelligence and
heart which is often overlooked but a trademark for this
disciple. Their tried and true transition of the Cowhorse,
be it a Cutter, Reined Cowhorse or other discipline into
sorting and penning is an important function and that’s
where Jared and Sarah Lesh horses excel. Their track
records, awards and winnings speak for themselves. But their
teaching, training and guidance produce highly talented
prospects and students of the game that is clearly second to
none. Especially, as these athletes go into the hands of new
owners as it was for us. You can rest assure and have the
confidence your horse will deliver the performance you
expect and lessen your concerns that ultimately increase
your focus on the game. That difference will be money in
your pocket!! We truly believe and trust in Jared and Sarah
for their training, horses and most of all their business
acumen. Our experience will keep us coming back in many
ways, a customer buying and becoming owners of these
exceptional equine athletes in the Sorting and Penning
Thank you Jared and Sarah, for this experience and “BIG WHEEL BIG DIEHL”!

In December 2010, I attended a sorting and penning
clinic at the Lesh's with 9 people that I routinely ride
with. Jared coached us on our penning strategies and
techniques for a full day. The second day Jared coached us
on our sorting strategies for a full day. During both of
these days, Jared worked with us as both as a group and
individually. Jared worked with us as we rode with different
partners. Jared especially worked with us on our
horsemanship skills. His instruction was clear and concise,
and targeted to the specific issue at hand. I feel that we
all came away with much needed knowledge and strategies.
This has helped our group be able to ride with each other
and to begin thinking alike when we ride. It has helped us
identify strategies to put us "on the same page" with our
partners. The clinic didn't just end the day we left. Since
last December, when I am riding at an event, Jared is
usually available to watch me ride and offer coaching when
requested. Jared and Sarah were very accommodating during
our stay. We rode hard for 2 very full days. Stalls were
ready and available for our horses upon our arrival. They
had plenty of hook-ups available for our living quarters
trailers. Cattle were numbered and ready to ride on. I also
enjoyed the camaraderie at meal time and the in-depth
discussions of our sport.
| Hi Sarah,
Thanks for everything at the show. It is because of you and Jared … your
skill in selecting horses for Sydney and time you took
working with her this summer (and afterwards) … that she has
progressed to this level. (Sydney Duleba won the 2011 USTPA
World Championship in JR Youth, winning her very first
trophy saddle at age 12)
I’m a Team Penner at heart, but was having a hard
time transitioning to Sorting, so I went to the Lesh's to
see if they could help me be more competitive in the Sorting
Arena. After listening to me about my needs they worked with
me for several hours & they put me on several horses to ride
to see which horse would be best suited for my riding style.
The results; At my next show I took 2nd. & 3rd. in one
Sorting class and I got 1st. place in another. I highly
recommend the Lesh's for being patient, attentive & helping
you find what you need in the Performance horse world.
Sincerely, Bobby Gladu
Hey guys just wanted to drop you a line and update
you on “Hope” the mare that I purchased from your ranch. She
is kicking Butt in the classes we enter. She has improved me
as a rider and I know we will move up in the rankings easily
this year and earn some winnings. From my visit to your
ranch/home through the entire process you guys where
awesome. I like that you evaluated me as a rider first,
before just bringing out a bunch of horses. You listened to
my needs watched me as a rider then dialed in on a few
horses. Then even after I bought the mare you still gave me
support. All I can say is I will be back to you guys when I
need a new horse and will recommend you to all me equestrian
"Long Live Cowboys", Joe Epifanio
After watching several USTPA competitions, and
competing on several horses, I decided to get myself to
Whitesboro, Texas in the spring of 2011. It was a complete
experience! The straight-forward approach of Sarah and Jared
is so refreshing in the horse world. Once we talked and
determined my price range and expectations, Sarah showed me
a variety of horses—my selection took most of the afternoon
that first day, but I was afforded all the time I wanted to
decide. The next day, I returned and tried out my new horse
in a one-on-one clinic with Jared—to fully appreciate the
clinic, you have to be there. For me, it was an intense,
hands-on learning experience that “upped” my sorting and
penning game by leaps and bounds! In October, 2011, I came
back to get another horse. Same process—wonderful selection
of horses to try! This time, I stayed for 3 days of clinic.
I cannot recommend the Lesh experience highly enough! Anyone
who wants to pen and sort competitively should try it!
Excellent selection of horses, variety of prices and skill
levels—but most of all, Sarah and Jared focus on finding the
horse that’s best for you, the rider. I’ll be back!
Blacksville, West Virginia
Bobby & Randy Barrett had been penning for 20+ years when
Randy & Cheryl got married. We did OK, but Cheryl wanted
them & herself to be better. We met Jared & Sarah in 2010.
That summer Cheryl called Sarah & said she wanted to buy
“The Barrett Boys” & herself a private clinic with Jared for
Christmas presents. Then in Aug 2010, Randy, Cheryl & Bobby
took a trip to Jared & Sarah’s ranch to check out upgrading
Randy & Bobby’s competition horses. Since they had both seen
Randy & Bobby ride for some time, they picked out 3 to 5
horses they felt would fit us. It was very comfortable. They
took their time with us. They had cattle we could try them
out with, which is very important since we compete in Team
Penning/Sorting. We even got pointers on things we were
doing wrong. Both were very open with their knowledge. Both
Randy & Bobby came home with new horses, that they dearly
love, & we all came home with a wealth of knowledge on how
to be better penners/sorters.
In the spring of 2011, we traveled back down to Jared &
Sarah’s place for our private clinic. By the time we were
finished, we had all kinds of knowledge & very worn out, I
Jared & Sarah had several USTPA shows this year, of which we
attended all of them. If you get to one of their shows &
don’t have rides… not to worry… Sarah will get you rides… no
problem. Never once have we been to one of their shows that
they didn’t tell each & every person there “Thank You for
coming to our show!!” They made everyone feel so very
welcome. You can’t beat their prices for rides. Everyone is
so friendly & happy to have a place to ride that is
affordable. That is so hard to find these days.
Cheryl was not happy with her mare's (ROXY) performance &
felt she needed a "tune-up" so she could compete better. She
decided to leave her down at Jared & Sarah’s after one of
their shows for 30 days & when we went back down for the
Region 2-10 Finals, she had hopes of having a much better
horse. She was not disappointed. It was truly amazing the
difference. Then in November Randy & Cheryl attended the
USTPA World Finals. Cheryl, along with James Dunn & Greg
Hansen won the 3-Pen draw. Cheryl had never made it to the
USTPA Top 10 Finals before. We can’t tell you the difference
in that little mare. It’s just incredible. Roxy truly rode
like JL horse, thanks to her "tune-up".
Long story short, Jared & Sarah is your one stop shop for
anything having to do with Penning & Sorting… be it buying a
new horse, taking a clinic, getting a tune-up for a horse
you already have, not to mention a place to compete. We
really can’t say enough about those two.
We think they are, by far, THE BEST!!
Randy, Cheryl, & Bobby Barrett
Deciding to buy horses from Jared & Sarah has been the best decision I
could have made.
They spent countless hours with me to ensure I found the
horses that fit me and that I could be
on. They want to see their horses in the winner’s circle so
they take much time and consideration in matching the
rider’s skills and abilities to the horse. I how have 4
horses with the JL brand and know I can be competitive
anywhere I go. Shortly after buying my JL horse, my
daughter, granddaughter and I won the #9 penning at the San
Antonio livestock show which was the highlight of my penning
career. Jared & Sarah have the best thing going if you are
looking for a team penning or ranch sorting horse. Jared's
clinics are the best in the business and they put on some
great team pennings & sortings. I am highly impressed with
Jared & Sarah’s ability to match horse to rider and
recommend them to anyone needing a penning or sorting horse.
Tom L. Sparks
Mike and I have been sorting and penning for about 3 years. The first year we bought 2 horses. One was a JL horse brokered by someone else. Mike rode the JL horse and I rode the other. Mike started winning immediately where I didn't know what a check looked like with my name on it. We soon took a trip to
Texas to buy me a JL horse. My mare paid for herself in less than a year. We
now have only JL horses in the barn. We have looked around at other horses
but I am convinced if you want the real deal save yourself some time and
just go to Jared and Sarah. Together as a team they make magical connections
with horse and rider. Mike and I are no longer strangers to the winners
circle. We won matching reserve champion buckles together at this years
finals with our local club. We have had the opportunity to receive one on one
instruction from Jared. One hour will up your game tremendously. Jared and
Sarah are professionals at what they do and we consider them our friends.
Mike and Linda
| I was just thinking what a
great horse we purchased from you! She rides Reydar
bareback through our pastures & rarely puts her feet
in stirrups during penning and sorting competition &
Reydar always takes care
This past May 2011 I decided to start
looking for a second horse for ranch sorting. I had been
told by several people that not only did Jared and Sarah
Lesh usually have a large number of horses to choose from,
but they were good at making horse and rider matches.
Traditionally, I have ridden geldings; however, after Jared
and Sarah watched me ride they suggested I try out a bay
mare, Shadaisy Mae. I was a little skeptical at first to
consider a mare, but after riding her for about 10 minutes,
I understood first hand how Jared and Sarah make awesome
horse and rider matches. I was ready to purchase this mare
and I did! Since May 8, 2011 through November 4, 2011
Shadaisy and I have been to 11 shows. The following are
placings in which we received money:
All Levels, four 1st places, one 2nd
with 158 teams and one 4th place.
#13 HC, one 1st, two 2nd places, two 4th
#10 HC, one 1st with 92 teams, one 2nd
place, one 3rd place, one 4th place, two 5th places, one
#8 HC, one 1st place
#6 HC, one 1st, one 2nd place, one 3rd
#11 HC 2 cap, one 3rd (gate only)
USTPA World Finals, Monroe, LA, World
Champion in #3 with 190 teams
AQHA Amateur 18 points
Additionally Shadaisy has been ridden by
Danielle Goyer at the 2011 RSNC Finals. In the #14
RH they placed 3rd and 4th, at the Ft Worth USTPA Show
they placed 1st in the 9 class.
Jared and Sarah, you are skilled at making
winning combinations. Thank you!
We love you guys as true friends and as business people... and feel we
have some of the best penning horses out there, so we may be
a little biased, lol...
My family started penning/sorting about 8 years ago and we have looked at
A LOT of penning horses. We realized after our first visit
to the JL Ranch that there is nowhere else in the country
that you can go and ride 4 - 5 horses that fit your personal
riding style and ALSO receive one-on-one coaching and
guidance from Jared. I never feel rushed to make a decision
and ALWAYS leave with some of the best penning/sorting
advice I have ever received anywhere. Some people just "sell
you a horse...," I think Jared has an innate ability to
match the right horse to the right person. My home state of
AR had the benefit of hosting a JL clinic, and again, the
coaching, guidance and one-on-one lessons everyone received
were well worth the money. Those who wanted a little "extra"
time at lunch had the benefit of working exclusively with
Jared, and everyone left feeling like they had a couple
things to work on to make them better sorters. There are no

few seconds, you realize, your horse made all the
difference...and we want ours to be JL horses.
