With Grace, thank you!! I think he's quite stunning too (though I may be a bit bias lol). His show career went kapish at his very first show as a Jr. Horse. Had a Jr. Exhibitor (his owner at the time) showing him in his very first class ever, first direction went great, second direction great walk/trot, when it came time to canter he first didn't want to pick it up...so sadly instead of waiting and re-trying the rider took the whip, whacked him on the butt to try and get him going, Henry reared, the rider went to grab mane and grabbed all reins instead and ended up flipping over backwards.
He was double and triple checked physically, scanned, x-rays done, everything. They couldn't find anything physically wrong with him, but his mind was gone. He couldn't be shown. Even years after this ordeal, people would try to take him to a show and he would just loose his mind. A reaaaal shame, as he is a gorgeous boy and a stunner of a worker at home. He's come a long way since I bought him as I've changed a lot of things working/feed/care wise, and we can now trail ride and SAFELY leave the property, but I haven't tried trailering and taking him anywhere yet. He's got a permanent spot with me, I don't need him as a show horse :) He's happy just the way he is, loves the trails now and I have another horse that is my 'show' horse so he's under no pressure to do anything but be his cute goofy (albeit nutty) self :)
