My Horse Profile

Thoroughbred from Reynoldsburg, OH

Gus

About Me

Active within 1640 Days

I am from Reynoldsburg, OH and I've been a Club Horse member for 7 years, 8 months and 18 days

Nicknames: Big Gus, Gussy, Gusball, Goober, and at times, Buttface.

Age: 15 years old

Gender: Gelding

Breed: Thoroughbred

Height: 15.3

Color: bay with a stripe and a pink blob on his nose

Type of Riding: jumpers. some dressage

My Horse's Achievements: Not yet. We're just finally getting our act together. Hopefully he'll achieve some stuff this summer :D

My Horse's Favorite Treat: peppermints. Not the cinnamon kind with red in the middle, just the regular ones. Any other kind he spits out

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: run, jump, do dressage, go trail riding, eat peppermints, hang out with me :D

Pet Peeves: being groomed briskly (he likes long and smooth)

My Horse's motto: When you are short tempered, let me teach you to slog around the pasture for an hour before you can catch me.

When you are quick to react, let me teach you that herbivores kick much faster & harder than omnivores.

When you are angry, let me teach you how well I can stand on my hind feet because I don't feel like cantering on my right lead today.

When you are arrogant, let me teach you what 1200 lbs.
Of "YAHOO LETS GO!" can do when suitably inspired.

When you are lonely, let me be your companion. Let's do
lunch. Also, breakfast, snack and dinner.

When you want to learn, hang around, bud. I'll learn ya.
Love,
Gus

really? well, i like ti when horses are lively, like when its windy outside, and i like spirited horses, Zany is spirited, becasue she is rideable, and a very good girl, but she is still sorta green, so i like riding her, it keeps u on ur toes, like my friends Adam, his Mom has a horse named After Hours, he might of made her a profile, idk, but she WILL ump you if u don't know what ur doing at all times, she knows EVERY trick in the book, anyways, here's a vote,

well it takes Kaiya i little bit longer than other horses to warm up(why i do not know)so we trot and canter alot,but we line up about 5 poles on the grounds one after another(like this) ||||| so we just trot and canter over those some and then we'll set up cones like in line and i'll make her weave through them and things like that etc.

i'm talking about the big time pros. grand prix!like some of the gp's are just for fun like at the c shows my sis shows at and the ocasional a show!but when we go to the big shows like the Aiken classic or Paramount championship is the big one!like its kind of confusing,but if u wanna be in the big ones like aiken and paramount then u have to go to the small ones like Harmon Field and Fence and places like that and WIN!so u qualify at the a and c shows and make it to the big time,if u were one of the best at the Aiken classic then ur qualified for the Paramount (did u get that b/c if not just tell me and i'll try to make it as short and understood as possible!)

Meano got to do something for the new year that many of us don't get to do. She got to go to a wonderful new home today that has many other horses that are in her class. She is now part of a quarter horse ranch that raises and shows halter horses. She will be missed dearly (especially by me, I haven't been able to stop crying since she left) but I know she is in good hands and she will finally be able to do what she was bred for: show. She seemed to show an instant bond with her new owner, and that is something that you cannot replace. I'll leave her website on for a few more weeks or so, so that everyone can say goodbye....The new owner promised to keep me updated and I also have her website address, so if anyone is curious I can keep them up to date as I find out. Here's one last vote from Meano....Thanks for being a good friend to her!

hey
heeyy! wow what an amazing story! hahaa i have had a few of those while riding my horse Union. My friend and her horse Romeo and me and Union love going on trail rides on thursdays..its just a day we picked to not care how we look while we ride hahah so we would do a quick hack..then went up to the trail where we go up a steep hill to where there is a motorcycle circle..there we set up jumps and stuff..welll on our way back down to the barn..union got really high strung (hes a thoroughbred also!) and wouldnt go down the hill so he kept turning around and went down the marked woods backwards...i thought we were definetly going to fall down the hill. Catherine my friend thought i should have gotten off but that might have been worse...so i kept nudging him up the hill but he kept going down. idk how i got him to go down but after the 5th try he jumped the log leading down and we pranced all the way back to the barn where i cooled him out. The next day the hunter we hired bc there are coyotes at the barn, told me and my friend not to go up there anymore bc he found coyote dens where me and my friend went..so union spooked at that..we have not been up there since..
