Welcome to Rising Water Quarter Horses!!!

We are James and Jackie Meffen, and we live south of St. Louis, Missouri where we stand our IBHA World
Champion stallion, Phenomenal Creation, and the rest of our herd.

James is a graduate of Benedictine University in Lisle, IL with a BS in Biology and a Masters Degree in Physiology.  
Jackie is a graduate of Illinois College in Jacksonville, IL, with a BS in Biology/Pre-Vet.

We were fortunate enough in May 2005 to purchase IBHA World Champion stallion Phenomenal Creation!!  We are
very excited to stand him to the public and enjoy showing some of our own Phenomenal foals in the Buckskin
circuits.  In his first two foal crops, "Pete" had already produced World Champions and Reserve World Champions,
and continues to have more Champions each year!  Let us put a winning "Pete" baby in your barn!!!
