Jensen Quarter Horses: Breeding focuses on quality mares and Playzorro stallion

Heather Hamilton

Jensen Quarter Horses centers on the stallion Playzorro, whom Chris Jensen rode to a 2010 AQHA World Championship in the Select Heading Division, and a 2011 Reserve World Champion in the Select Breakaway Roping division. Purchased from the Pitzer Ranch Sale, Playzorro was the result of looking for a gelding to show in the AQHA, and has resulted in a Quarter Horse operation that is progressive and multi-faceted.

“He assured me that just because we were buying a stallion didn’t mean we had to have mares, and that we would just take in outside mares. That lasted about six months, until the first mare showed up,” laughs Jenifer Jensen of her husband’s start with the stallion.

“Our breeding program is pretty simple and basic; it’s just that we have an exceptional horse in Playzorro, and try to purchase very high quality mares who are daughters of AQHA World Champion studs to use him on, and Jenifer just keeps buying them,” Chris Jensen playfully retorts on how their operation has grown.

“We also take in outside mares, and expect his offspring to able to work on the ranch or in the show pen for those people,” Jensen continues, whose operation is based in Lance Creek, WY.
