Re: [RC] Great 100 Milers (Whoa Jack & Sandy Olinger) - Amy Major

I had the distinct pleasure of riding Whoa Jack.  I want to get into endurance and  a mutual friend introduced me to Melissa.  At the time (last Feb and March)  I was looking for a horse to start conditioning and Melissa was sweet enough to look at some descriptions of horses I had found.  She then offered to let me come out and ride with her to see what my riding level was so that she had a better idea what type of horse might work for me.

She rode Sage and I rode Whoa Jack.  He is one of the sweetest horses I have ever been on.  He gave Sage (probably 15 years his junior) a run for his money.  And you could tell Melissa was proud of him. 

What a great honor to ride such a wonderful horse.  He was a gentleman the entire time.  And what a great confidence builder for someone very new to the sport.

It was because of Melissa that I met my other great friends that are helping me.  She suggested I volunteer at the Trace Tribute to get an idea about how rides go.  I met many people who just included me in their group.  That is a great suggestion for anyone who thinks they might like to eventually do LDs or endurance.

Take a look at Whoa Jack's record for I think 1991 or 1992-
looks like a 50 AND and a 100 within each 6 week period.
and yes he was always in the top 10.

So I wonder why he was he sold Sandy to Melissa..
or are they re;lated???)

If you want to be wowed folks, look up Amir Nezraff and look at his
win/BC record. After that look up Whoa Jack. We were wishing we could
see Whoa Jack's international finishes.
