My Horse Profile

Saddlebred from Wilmington, NC

Universal Soldier

About Me

Active within 1722 Days

I am from Wilmington, NC and I've been a Club Horse member for 5 years and 28 days

Nicknames: Registered: Universal Soldier
Barn name: Soldier
**Universal Soldier's great grandfather is the legendary Wing Commander.**

Age: 21 years old

Gender: Gelding

Breed: Saddlebred

Height: 15-16hh

Color: Homozygous Brown and White Paint (Tobiano)

Type of Riding: English Hunter

My Horse's Achievements: Soldier had really been through alot. He was a stallion until he was 12, and he was mistreated. When i bought him a year ago, his previous owners were trying to teach him Saddleseat; and when he didn't respond, they stalled him because they couldn't do anything with him. Now though, he's the happiest he's ever been. He's catching onto Hunter training fast, and he's finally relaxed. I'm really proud of him overall for trying his best, and not giving up.

My Horse's Favorite Treat: Apples and molasses and Pepsi :D

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: Soldier loves to roll anywhere, and anytime. He also loves to get me as dirty as possible, whether it's pushing me into a mud puddle or grabbing the hose and spraying me with it. In the ring, he really strives to do what i ask of him; and he's proud when he accomplishes it.

Pet Peeves: Soldier is a Saddlebred, so he is somewhat of a spook. He doesn't like loud people, men, or anything in nature that moves and scares him. :)

My Horse's motto: "A horse in the wind-a perfect symphony"

"We put the 'fun' in dysfunctional when we ride"

How We Met

At my barn, there was a saddlbred named Strutter. Me and strutter were very close, and we both taught each other how to jump, and perform in the ring better. Strutter was nearing his twenties and so he wasn't able to do everything he used to do, but i was fine with that. However, his owner moved back to the state and took Strutter away, and that was hard for me. So we set out looking to buy a Saddlebred, and we did!We went to try him, and we ended up buying him that night. :) Soldier's my horse, and i'm his human..

A dog looks up to a man, a cat looks down on a man, but a patient horse looks a man in the eye and sees him as an equal.

A vote for Universal Soldier from PF
Congrats on the new foal! MORE NEWS! Petite Fleur sends cool horsey kisses ! We are trying to beat the biting flies now also ! Not to mention the drought! Ordered more hay and have to hose her down each evening! Our guests with their adorable baby girl of 5 months just adore PF and I was so proud how gentle she was with the little one even while being bitten by those nasty flat flies! Here is a good afternoon Monday vote! The guests left this morning and did not want to leave our home for Paris!

Thanks for the comment and I'm really glad that he is happy now and doing well in training! I've actually gotten two of my horses, not the ones on the site, from the slaughter pen at different auctions and they were also mistreated but they've been the best two that I've ever had!!! I'm really glad that you got him and are giving him everything that he needs!!! Here's a vote for you!!!

Thanks for the vote-here's one for you
Hello there. I hope you and Soldier are well. You asked how Fancy is responding to dressage training. Well, the contact thing was an issue for a time but a dental exam revealed a wolf tooth that need pulled and since then she has been on the bit and round. Dressage is new to me too all the horses I had before I had rode and showed Western and one big appendix QH gelding I also showed huntseat. I've always admired how beautiful and in harmony the dressage riders and horses are; so, since I'm older and while barrel racing, reining, polebending, cutting, sorting etc, are a blast I think I'll just watch those events now and practice dressage. This gives me a purpose and Fancy a job. It's really nice that my dressage teacher lives 2.5 miles away and Fancy and I ride to our lessons every week. Again thank-you for the vote and the nice blog.

Well there are some geldings who were castrated at a young age and STILL think they are stallions! This drives PF crazy cause they annoy her but can't do anything to complete the job, he he! Here is a Monday (and hot as down the lowest core ) vote for the handsome and classy Universal Soldier!

A big vote for Universal Soldier from Petite Fleur
Had to make a slow trot in this heat to put my hoof on your voting horse shoe! Also, just had to flirt! Must be my French upbringing! But most other male horses drive me crazy by bothering me! Are you a gentle guy?
