Brent Marsh has made a lasting impact on June Kretzschmer, and it’s easy to see why. “Brent has taught me to be a better showman, and I have gained so much more confidence. He has taught me how to read my horse and how to react appropriately. I have learned to be patient and relax in all situations.” June also says that even though Brent is a fantastic showman, his love for the horse is greater than the glory of being in the show pen, and he loves and cares for all the horses as if they were his own.
One of June’s biggest dreams was to show at the Quarter Horse Congress, and three years ago, that dream came true. With Brent’s help and guidance, even missing numbers couldn’t stop her from having success. Realizing her numbers were nowhere to be found right before her class, Brent jumped on his bike and rode off. After returning winded, he pinned her numbers on, and they went up to the Celeste to show. After her run, Brent told her he had been so winded because he had to run to the show office- she needed to check in so she could pick up her numbers! “I will always be grateful that Brent kept calm and took care of something that could have easily ruined my first Congress experience. Instead, I had the best Congress and made Top Ten in both my classes.”
June also explains that riding was the only thing that brought a smile to her face for a time. “Being a part of Marsh Performance Horses was a huge part of bringing me back to life. I’m so grateful and lucky to be a part of this amazing team.”
