    I just love my horse his just soo wonderful He pushes me soo hard but at the same time he's the best, his so energetic, but calm. His so strong but gental. His the best horse ever! I have to tell his story because its what makes me get on his back every day with a smile.

    I got him as a fresh Off The Track TB. Quiet as, bombproof. Form - Horrible, Jumping - Never Done It, Talent - None (Other then racing). This turned out to be the well trained eventer I went out to buy. One ride and I wanted him, he was under weight, under fed, under cared for. But I loved him and that’s all that mattered, I went up and rode him occasionally for about 2 months, he was two hours away and every chance I got I went to ride him. I didn't get to see him for about a month and finally he came home. As soon as he stepped off the truck. I stood there with shock. .. This is NOT my horse.



    Swollen Legs
    Dangerously Under Weight
    Freaked Out
    Rain Scald - From head to hoof.

    Turns out this was my horse and in the month I hadn't seen him he had stopped being fed and had swollen legs from standing knee deep in mud. I nearly cried and sent him back, instead I took the lead rope and led him to his paddock, full of grass and walked him round for a bit before giving him breakfast and letting him out to graze. Slowly his weight became better, he quietened down and the rain scald was disappearing.

    Now to ride him! W T F. Not. My. Horse. Psycho, Nuts, Animal. I can't even explain how bad he was. Rear, Kick, Buck, Bolt, Spin, Rear, Rear, Bolt, Buck. Drugged.

    For three weeks, I worked with this, coming home in tears. On the ground he was the most amazing horse you could ever dream of He cuddled, he played he was amazing. Things started to get better and now his finally learning to be an eventer. Finally being that dream horse.

    Behind that team we are today ;
    Are the coaches that pushed us ;
    The tears I cried;
    The pain we felt;
    The dirt I hit;

    ;And I'm not looking back;
