Wahoo Elementary 5th grader Jack Berggren and his 9-year-old American Quarter Horse, Molly, have been a team in reining competition for more than a year.

At 10, Jack Berggren is an experienced hand with horses. He knows the joy of riding, the thrill of competing and the daily work of caring for horses.

Jack also knows the injury horses can cause.

“He became interested in them (horses) probably when he was about old enough to walk,” said his father, Joel Berggren of rural Weston, Neb.

The Berggrens — Joel, wife Lisa and their children, Jack and younger sister Cecelia — raise brood mares and ride.

Jack and his 9-year-old American Quarter Horse, Molly, have been a team in reining competition for more than a year.

He finished second this year in his age group in the Central Plains Reining Horse Association. That qualified him to compete Dec. 6 in the National Reining Horse Association Futurity in Oklahoma City.
