I just got my OTTB the day after Thanksgiving, had her shoes off the day after that and have been training her natural horsemanship. I have been trying out different methods to see what will work best for the both of us, especially her. She is such a sweetie and has a temperament of one on the ground as well as under saddle. I have ridden her a few times but she needs a lot more ground work. I don't think she really had any when she use to race.
I would like to talk to some people who own OTTB please and tell me your experiences with OTTB.
