Jack Junker, Head Ring Steward

Jack Junker in the RingThe head ring steward here at the National Show is Jack Junker (in blue jacket on right) who was just inducted into the ApHC Hall of Fame. He doesn’t really like the title of head steward though since he sees what they do as a team effort.

Jack says his job is kind of like being a traffic cop in the ring with a high priority on making sure everyone is safe. He’s been doing this for about 19 years and says that there is room for some new stewards if someone is interested.

He says you have to have a love of the horses and that there really haven’t been too many situations that stand out in his mind although he does relate a couple of them in my interview with him.
