“Not only do I still have sweet Sly Pioneer and silly Suave Lord, but I kept a blog about their adoption and retraining since their arrival on February 22, 2009 – over 400 posts! In addition two years later in 2011, I also adopted Suave Lord’s full brother, Found in the Fog, from Parx Racing too. I retrained them and ride them daily in all weather, outside of the ring and always without a bit, mostly bareback and without ever lunging or using a round pen. I am 48 years old and Pie (Sly Pioneer) was just three when he arrived yet they all spoil me with safe rides because they are kept happy, sane, and sound. They are simply the best!

Please feel free to use any photographs from the blog or from my Instagram account. I will include the links below. In addition, I write articles for Equitrekking, the Emmy award-wining equestrian themed travel television show on PBS, about the boys. My “Bit to Bitless” article won an Equitrekking award as a top article of 2013.

I adore my amazing OTTBs!!!!!!” -Juliette O.
