Joe Banjo


Joe Banjo is a son of Dock and best known worldwide for his beauty and grace. Banjo is a 15.2 hand Stallion and is very gentle and intelligent. Almost anyone can ride him and children are attracted to him and love him. Many have his well known photo on their computer screens and his photos continuously appear in calendars and in magazines all over the world. He has produced some of the finest offspring here at Classic Farm and his babies seem to always have his good looks and gentle nature. Banjo is dark chocolate with a solid four beat gait . He has proven himself over and over in the Show arena and has won almost every cherished Championship title available.

Joe Banjo is a very notable son of  Dock who has an interesting story. When Banjo was born in 1998 Jason Stefanic our 15 year old son was totally enthralled. Jason had been riding Mountain Horses since he was 8 and was really waiting for that special horse to come along. After seeing that Jason had claimed Banjo for his own as a baby, Sue and I decided that this special dark chocolate, white mane and tail stud colt, needed an extra special name. Name after name had come up and we just weren’t happy that we found the right one yet.

One trip back from Kentucky to our home state of Pennsylvania made the difference. As we played the name game for yet another go, Sue asked me to turn down the radio in the car, John Bonjovi was playing a TUNE. I said to Sue, how about JOHN BANJO, Sue said how about JOE? Many people have asked us how we came up with the name Joe Banjo because they thought it was so unique.

Not only did Joe Banjo’s name turn out to be unique, but so did Banjo. Jason broke Banjo as a three year old and decided that was the year he would show him all by himself. Jason had turned 18 that year and he was able to show the Stallion Joe Banjo in the big show at the Kentucky Horse Park. 2001 was a banner year for Jason and Banjo for they together won the coveted Sam Tuttle Award. The youngest rider and horse to ever do so at that time. In 2002, Jason and Banjo did it again, they won the Sam Tuttle Award in back to back years and he also went on to become the UMH/KMSHA World Classic Grand Champion.

Many have seen Joe Banjo’s picture’s in magazines and on posters. His photo’s were published all around the World. Many know and have grown to love this beautiful and exceptional Stallion and his popularity is unsurpassed.

Joe Banjo has had quite a show and modeling career over the past few years. Both he and Madison Colette (a model from Lexington, KY pictured above) have appeared together in many National and International  horse magazines and calendars over the past several years. Both have gotten well known together for their beauty and style.

Banjo has received many National and International Show titles over the years for his model appearances as well as his performance under saddle. Having won the coveted RMHA Sam Tuttle Award twice in back to back year, he is also two time KMSHA International and World Grand Champion and two time KMSHA Hi-Point Champion as well as RMHA and KMSHA Futurity 5 and over Grand Champion.

Another one of Banjo’s fine characteristics is that he passes along his wonderful characteristics to his get. He is one of the finest producers of the Mountain Horse breeds today, much like his legendary father Dock.
