Joel Rosenstern

Joel's love for horses began at a young age. Throughout his childhood, Joel spent thousands hours drawing horses and studying equine conformation and angles while pouring over Walter Farley's famous "Black Stallion" novels. His love for Arabian horses is in his blood, and his goal for 10+ years has been and remains to raise Classic and Foundation American Shetlands of Arabian type and quality.

Dual Certified in Natural Hoofcare, Joel also spends his days transitioning horses to natural, healthy, shoe-less hooves for a multitude of disciplines. With almost 10 years of experience, JRos Natural Hoofcare has become one of the largest barefoot hoofcare practices in the world.

Combining his artistic eye and 20+ years of studying equine conformation and movement with his education in Genetics from Pennsylvania State University and almost 10 years of professional hoofcare gives Joel a sharp eye for horses and a wealth of knowledge for breeding and showing.  

When not with his horses, Joel is also an active song-writer, singer and performer. For more information about Joel's music please visit http://www.joelros.com.

The Stallions of JRos Equine were carefully chosen for how well they represent the American Shetland breed standard with a flare of Arabian influence, style, and carriage. Our stallions have excellent temperaments and correct conformation and movement.

Our Mares have been hand-selected for Prince or are Prince daughters retained for the future crosses of JRos Equine. Quality mares of consistent pedigrees crossed on genetically powerful stallions are the key to raising "the look" that we so strongly emphasize.

If we retain a gelding, it is because we feel it is an excellent example of what one of our stallions produce. Showing and promoting a gelding is an important aspect to any breeding program.
