“Dawn and I adopted Gates and LOVE him to pieces. Our trainer loves working with him. Because of surgery and injury, Dawn was unable to ride for two months and put him in training board. He is learning: dressage movements, lowering his head and jumping small fences. We can see why he never made it to the track. He doesn’t have the heart to “race” around with a rider on. His canter is an even gait; actually you need small spurs to keep him going. This is the most wonderful way to find TBs new homes. In earlier years, I used to buy TBs from New Holland, give them time off, and have my daughter and I just trail ride them until we found them to show homes. Tell his trainer THANK YOU for being a wonderful person and not breaking this baby down.” -Judy T.
