I also have an OTTB although I didn't get him till he had been a school horse for a few years. I think what really connected us was that he really needed to be a 1 person horse. He really hated being a school horse so when I bought him he suction cupped himself to me within a week!! I had never had a horse bond so close to me so fast!!! I am not saying he trusted me completely, it still took lots of time with his spookyness because he was very spooky, but I could tell once we moved to a different facility how much he trusted me. My B/O thinks he is the cutest thing cuz he is just like a puppy the way he follows ya and will lick all over your jacket and hands. (he has never bitten anyone, but me, in the 3 years I have owned him. lol and the 1 time he did bite me he was really mad!! (long story).
Anyways I think they are 1 of the best breeds they are so loyal I will always have OTTB!!!!

I am owned by the Sandman

my OTTB is a big puppy dog too ... she loves to be as close to me as possible, even when things are scary which is so funny b/c she is so big and i can't hold her! Anywho I have always been a warmblood person but I love my OTTB more then anything! I am so blessing with a calm chill mare and wouldn't trade her for anything!

Exactly, they need lots of time and attention. I got my OTTB gelding about six months ago and he started playing with me as the farrier was working on him. Big breakthrough, great joy.

my TB is a sweetheart. She needs human contact a lot and is very bonded to me but very bratty as well, can we say spoiled? Never had a horse that needed so much attention, but she is a love when she is not acting stupid

I have an OTTB who is 10 months pregnat. She really bonded with me and my dad! She also just needed a leader, because she wasn't getting leadership at the breeding place.
