Ocala, FL- April 22, 2024 – Kyle Perkovich, 22, wrapped up the HITS Ocala Winter Circuit with another big win in the jumper ring on his young horse, Quinto. Just turning eight years old, Quinto seems to give it his all when the pressure is on, claiming the top spot in the $15,000 Show Jumping Hall of Fame (SJHOF) Junior/Amateur 1.45m Classic in the final week. The duo also won the  $24,500 Horseflight Jumper Classic during week 5 with a few good speed ribbons sprinkled in throughout the circuit.  

Perkovich, of Long Grove, Illinois, is changing up his program with trainer David Jennings, (Ocala), to move into the higher jumper divisions and learn more about the sport. Perkovich has always been a hands-on rider from an early age, spending time in the barn with his horses learning everything from tack and stall cleaning to clipping and feeding. He is focused on horsemanship and internships and loves having the project of bringing along a young horse.

“I am pleased with Quinto's progress through the end of the circuit. I couldn't be any happier finishing in the top spot of the SJHOF Classic. I was excited to see Quinto getting into better shape with his fitness levels as time went on. We plan to focus on the groundwork and building muscle to get Quinto ready for what's to come this season.” said Perkovich.

Kyle Perkovich and Quinto took on the $35,000 EMO Grand Prix at the Florida Horse Park.

Perkovich and Quinto also tackled the $35,000 EMO Grand Prix at the Florida Horse Park this month, with a good ride over a very long 17-obstacle course with 11 oxers. Truly a bit of a fitness test, the experience was a great learning opportunity for both horse and rider. The pair will concentrate on the 1.40m-1.45m classes with the next big show being the Aiken Charity Horse Show I and II.

Perkovich recently added Devoucoux to his sponsor list and is looking forward to riding in their amazing saddles and helping to promote the products.

"Huge thanks to Patrick Ennis at Devoucoux for setting me up with all the proper equipment!"  - Kyle Perkovich
