I am from Oakville, ON and I've been a Club Horse member for 5 years, 12 months and 2 days
Nicknames: His barn name is Beast
Age: 14 years old
Color: Solid Bay
Type of Riding: We do strictly english. We school jumping, cross country, dressage, and basics, and compete in preliminary level eventing, and 1.2m jumpers. Occasionally we show dressage to 2nd level. We school higher than that, but he's a bit hot to do lots of dressage. We also go hacking a lot.
My Horse's Achievements: I got him as a crazy, high strung, 4y/o OTTB. For the past for years I've been training him up, and now we're eventing to preliminary level eventing!
My Horse's Favorite Treat: When I first got Beast, he didn't know what treats were! Now, though he's crazy for carrots. Also, when I'm bored, I'll make him a horsey salad and let him eat that as a treat.
My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: He loves to jump and do cross country. this horse is so brave and bold over jumps; he will give his heart out to you on the course and will fly over anything you ask him to.
Pet Peeves: When we're showing, I have to keep him calm and under control because loud speakers, starting bells, loud noises, and occasionally other horses freak him out. It kindof funny, whenever we hear an announcer on a loud speaker at a show, he puffs himself up and struts around!!!
My Horse's motto: There is something about jumping a horse over a fence, something that makes you feel good. Perhaps it's the risk, the gamble. In any event it's a thing I need. - William Faulkner
