OTTB story...

Feel free to state why you got a OTTB, what issues the horse had, how you worked through them, what injuries the horse had when on the track or off the track. Share what you do with your OTTB... I am curious because I got my first TB in july and even though she was raced as a two and three year old she came off the track very lame and a trainer close by saved her and she sat in pasture for 7 years and popped out a baby three years ago. Then I got her and right know I am training her to be my english/western pleasure mare....

My friend was given buzz around 3 years ago now I think, and he only really become mine about a year ago.
He has a nice long history, He was trained to race but he was to slow, his last race was in 1999 I think it was.
He was then used as a lead horse for the race horses, sold off to be trained in polo, sold off again and used for barrels, and then my friend got him.
Now he is used for jumping flat and of course my fav trials :)

Haha my friend has a chesnut tb called buzz!!


Anywho, I got my OTTB as a chance to get some experience, and I hated her a lot. She didnt like me either, we didnt get along. She had obviously been wacked around a bit, because she was nervy all the time, and got frightened easily, but after a long long time, we built trust and now she will do anything for me! She is even learning to bow!!
