Our Team

John Jenkins takes a hands on approach to training. He likes to get to know his horses personalities before designing their training programme. By limiting the string to a maximum of 60 horses, John is able to devote sufficient time to each individual horse.

Wendy Jenkins is administrative manager and usual point of first contact for general enquiries. She organises all the entries to the race meetings and other administrative details concerned with running a successful training establishment.

The stable has a total of 15 full time staff. As well as having jockeys who come in to ride work and get a ‘feel’ for the horses before they ride them on the racecourse.

After the race, the horses are rested before beginning the journey home. Kings Ride is a very friendly stable, and welcomes enquiries from owners about horses, their training, or to arrange a visit to see the horse working.
