Adam was born and raised on a ranch in Jamestown, North Dakota, with his foot in the stirrup at a very young age. Even after he left home to attend college in Rapid City in 2001, Adam always knew horses were his number one priority. It was his drive that eventually lead him to chase the dream of becoming one of the reining industry’s elite professionals.
In pursuit of his vision, Adam began working under Darren Miller in 2005. He worked with Darren for two and a half years before moving on to expand his skill base. Over the next six years, Adam worked with the likes of Steve Schwartzenberger, Jared Leclaire and Andrea Fappani to polish and perfect his techniques. Finally in June 2011, Adam decided the time was right to make the leap from assistant to head trainer and mark the beginning of Hendrickson Performance Horses.
At 28 years old, Adam moved to Colorado to establish his new life and business with his wife, Jacque. Nestled in the shadow of the scenic Rocky Mountains, the training operation the couple runs is near the town of Windsor, where their client base and string of promising mounts are continually growing.
"I use Platinum to allow my horses to perform at their full potential. It is a great feeling to know that your horses are feeling and looking their very best, so I can perform at mine. Good nutrition is an essential part of my program, and that's why I use Platinum."
