New Horse

I've been on the hunt for a horse that was on the smaller side who could be trained, or is already trained, to do show jumping. I was looking for a specific breed that was bred for jumping but a lot of people told me get a horse off the track or look for own who looks like it could be a jumper. So that is what I did and that is how I wound up bringing a Thoroughbred mare, that I've named Cyclone, home. She is off the track and was raced under a rather punishing scedule since she was three, never raced at two. Cyclone is five years old and has raced a total of fourty-nine times, most of it as a three year old. She is a dark bay that stands at 16hh and already shows that she has what it would take to be a good show jumper. Cyclone fits in well with my herd of Shires and the llama, along with my dobermans. I've started to retrain her from track horse to show jumper and it is going a lot faster then I thought it would. Hopefully by next spring Cyclone will be ready to be in the show ring for the first time.
