“I love Blackjack. He is doing fabulous. I brought him home on 6/23/14 and both he & I are in heaven. I am an eventer so he has been learning the basics. He loves his hacks in the wood. I have my own horse farm with just 2 boarders, my retired eventer (who is 25yr and still acts like he is 3yr) and Blackjack. We have 15 acres but back up to 250 acres of state forest so lots of trail. I started jumping him a few weeks ago and he loves it. You just point and he goes. The fences are small so he builds his confidence, but he is so brave. He is very spoiled. He stays in during the day and out at night for the summer. He has a 12 x12 box stall with a huge dutch window that he loves to hand his head out and sight see. He has matted stall with ceiling fan and a box fan for those really hot days.

I want to thank you for having this amazing program. I don’t think you realize how much you are touching not only peoples lives but the horses also. He will be my forever horse and please know he is very much loved. He is so sweet and he loves his treats especially stud muffins. When I am done ridding him, I always ask him if he was stud muffin worthy. Of course he always says yes!” -Melissa C.
