Thoroughbreds ( from ex-racers to any other discipline )
This is my thoroughbred :) He is a 15.2 full thoroughbred ex-racehorse Buddy was like a dream come true when I got him. He taught me so much!
He was taken off the track due to an ankle injury, which had him out for awhile, but once it was solid again he was trained to be a hunter jumper. We at first didn't think his ankle would hold up to it, but it has and he is an incredible hunter jumper :)
This photo was in my first year of having him, I trained him and gained his trust and turned him into a 3'3+ hunter and 3'0 and under jumper.
This photo also from the first show just showing how happy he was to be working again.
This picture taken at a different time was how incredible he became in the ring!
I have many more photos of him in the ring if any of you would be interested in seeing more.
Don't call yourself a country gurl if your afraid to get a li'l down and dirty!
