“When I got him, we were both very green and I had actually just learned to canter myself. Your probably thinking, what an idiot, a girl getting a horse who is a beginner, getting an OTTB who she may never be able to ride. For someone who was not expecting to ever be able to ride him, we have accomplished so much. After being treated for EPM, we started to train together. We have done English and dressage shows, trail riding, and even my now 9 year old stepson can enjoy and ride him. He is such a good boy and is practically bombproof, I can honestly say I have never had a bad ride with him. He has brought me so much joy and is my first horse I have owned. I got him when he was just turning 4 and he is now 10 years old. We have been through so much together and I am so grateful for his love and companionship. He knows tricks for treats, such as put his nose up for a kiss to me, or he will ‘give hoof’ as a dog would ‘give paw’. When I call him from the field he nickers and whinnies to me and comes walks right up to the gate. It is such a beautiful relationship to have with someone to know you are trusting them with your life each day.” -Brittni T.
