Words cannot express how proud I am of this boy. His first hunter/eq show, with two medal qualifiers, and he won one and was a point off from winning the other, along with getting reserve for his division! He saved my ass a couple times today, and got very tired after the first five classes, but we placed high in all seven, which is much more than what I was hoping for! Also: first time riding without a flash, ever, and he was perfect and light and happy!
This is a prelim event horse, who won many titles during his 3-day run, who was originally a racehorse, who is now packing around 2’6”-2’9” hunter and eq courses like he’s done it his whole life, with only 7 months of training. I imagine by next summer we’ll be on the A/AA circuit, and hopefully doing well! He’s definitely a star, and with a little more work and a better show name, I think he’ll turn into the perfect eq horse.
I’m so proud of him, you guys. He’s my baby, and definitely the best project horse I’ve ever taken on. He’s so willing and tries so hard, and has made leaps and bounds since January.
I love the big man ♥♥
