“I would be very happy to fill you in on Roo (a.k.a. Kid). I adopted him in August of 2012. He might have been only four but his mind is like an 18yo – very wise. I called him “old soul”. Looks like he might have dismounted a few riders as sometimes he would try to “show off” but I was fine with that and he eventually settled down. Eventually I put him for sale. Soon I had many people interested in having him for a new career. That’s when I found myself not willing to let him go and decided to take a chance and see how far we can go as he proved himself being very talented and extremely smart. We only started to jump in August as I was trying to make sure he has plenty of muscle. In September he had his first jumper show (not registered yet). He did awesome! I think he took second, third and fourth and that is just us schooling nice and easy. By October in training he was going over 2’6-2’9 courses with amazing scope and technique. Right now he has been off and probably will have a break until warmer weather. He has HUGE talent and potential. I do have a young five-year-old rider who I’m hoping that by the time she is ready to move off the pony to a horse, he will be a “push button” exception teacher for her. So this is where we are now. I am registering him with USEF and looking forward to competing in upcoming years, as I know we can kick some butt!” -Maria B.
