I am from Iowa City, IA and I've been a Club Horse member for 6 years, 2 months and 22 days
Nicknames: Jake, Jakey, Cookie, babe
Age: 27 years old
Height: Right on the edge between horse and pony.
Color: Cherry Bay
Type of Riding: All types :) I'm young so I'm always looking for new things to try, and he's up for anything.
My Horse's Achievements: Yes! He used to be abused, not by the owners before I got him or even before them, but when he was really young he was very abused. The owners before me had left him out in a food without much TLC because the daughter was in collage and she loved him so much she didn't want to sell him. So he had some trust issues, and also didn't ride western, I think. But I taught him to back (both on halter and saddle),western rein, and a bunch of other fun things! He's also started to really trust me alot, and we've become great partners.
My Horse's Favorite Treat: For xmas this year I got him a giant bag of peppermint horse treats, and he's hooked.
My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: Attack me for peppermints, and really any other treat, gallop around when I ask him for a trot, and sigh when I ask him to trot, not walk as slowly as possible because he's just SO TIRED! And lick me and give me horse hugs and follow me around :)
Pet Peeves: He's really wierd about being spooky. On one hand, a train will go by, or a dog will run after him, and he'll just be like, "Whatever" but if a tiny bit of plastic or whatever floats by, he's all like "AHHHHH!!!!"
My Horse's motto: "Live to ride, ride to live."
