I was happy to be offered the opportunity to ride some of the sale horses and some of the horses on the property that need tune ups for the lesson program, or just for their owner in general. I love riding other horses because I learn something from every single one of them and they only improve you while you improve them.
As the horses are in training I will be taking them to shows, xc schools, and other places to get them out. There will be posts here about each of them and what they are up to as well. I'm also going to add a "For Sale" page to the blog so you can always check there to see what is available.
Currently there are two OTTBs for sale that have completely redefined my expectations of OTTBs. It's no secret I'm not a fan of them. I will ride them (obviously) and actually it is from riding them in the past that caused my general dislike of them. The two I'm riding right now have set the bar way higher than it ever has been.
Leo is a 15.3 9 year old gelding that last raced in October. He is an in your pocket puppy dog with springs in his feet. This guy is sound, sane, with no vices. I have yet to find anything that seems to bother him much at all. He is going to make someone an AMAZING event horse. He has the athleticism and the brain for it. He is super willing and loves having a person.
I will make individual posts about these horses with more info, pics, and video. If anyone is interested you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or message The Jumping Percheron FB page for more info.
