My Horse Profile

Standardbred from Hanmer, AK


About Me

Active within 2865 Days

I am from Hanmer, AK and I've been a Club Horse member for 10 years, 11 months and 6 days

Nicknames: Well his registered name is Embert. His mom's name was Amy Herbert and his dad's name was Armbro Emerson so they took the first two letters from is dad's name (the second one) and the last 4 from his mother. I like it. And I will NEVER call him Bert sounds like the puppet from Seasame street and he is far from that lol.

Age: 18 years old

Gender: Gelding

Breed: Standardbred

Height: 16.3 ish.

Color: Light Bay

Type of Riding: English and Western.

My Horse's Achievements: After 4 1/2 years of working on his legs he is now 100% sound. He can run and walk for hours without getting tired and he jumps logs on trails like nothing.

My Horse's Favorite Treat: Food. Tic-Tacs. Well the best way to go about this is what does he not like, so far only does not like red peppers. He eats everything else from Sour candy (yes I know not healthy but he'll only live once right and he loves it), Chips (Favorite i think is barbaque), Beer the guys at the racing stable we where at got him into beer, and of course the lovely horsey treats.

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: PLAY HALTER TAG! And work he loves going for rides and eating green grass. But playing halter tag has always been his favorite unfortunatly for him I ave prevented him from ever doing it again If you can see the lumps on his face? well those are small compared to what it was when he did it. Bone inflamation is a pain in the butt! But at least it's comming down.

Pet Peeves: Me cleaning his cuts. (he is accident pron!)

My Horse's motto: "Standardbreds are willing, loving, big hearted horses that come in all differenct shapes and sizes." - By ME

How We Met

A broken leg. Ok this is the story. I was working in a Standardbred racing barn when I met him for the first time he was neglected and really skinny, his face was grey from the lack of nutrition. (Not like the picture that's just sand cuz he likes to role! lol) I think he had just broken his leg the day after that. Then on the third day they shipped him down south because it was the end of the season here. The trainer came back the next summer but left him down there cuz he did not have room for him with his other horses. About one month after that I met Embert again. He had gainned alittle bit of weight but not enough so I took over his care since the trainer did not want to do it himself. That was the first day of his life he had ever had wraps on if you can picture it I got kicked pretty good but I got the wraps on in the end and he never did it again which is good lol. Then that october (2003) The owner said that he was sending him to the slaugther house. My parents were considering buying me a horse in the spring so I convinced them to let me adopt Embert of corse we needed to take x-rays to make sure. The vet came and gave him a 50% chance of healing but she said it was likely he would never walk again. I still managed to convince my dad since he was just a baby. Dad say yes and said if he could not be fixed then we would pay to have him put down humainly. Well now at the age of 8 he is fully healed. I have been ridding him for a year and a half but not for long periods of time but I felt he was ready and we went for a 4 hour trail ride where we jumped logs, paced on hard ground and sandy ground, trotted up hill and down hill, crossed bridges and railway tracks, walked on pavement and uneven ground, neeless to say he was pushed to do everything a normal horse would do and he did it with flying colours! No sweeling or heat in the leg or any of the other ones! I'm very proud of him and he keeps my hopes up that I can save another horse just like him in the futur..

Hey Argos here
Boy has it been an adventure this year first I had to save my herd from a neighbors crazy stallion. He tore our fence down and attacked us but I tried with all my mite to keep him away and ended up pretty battered myself. I saved them though only 7 out of 23 of us got attacked me the worst. Then I was excepted into the Sheriff's Posse and we went on a practice search and rescue I was nervous at first but soon found out that I like trail rides and like to look for missing people. Then in June I went to a horse show and trotted on my own without other horses around boy was Felicia happy we didn't do great but we had fun. So now we are looking for a new riding instructor and hopefully we can get a few lessons in before winter hits.

well if thts why you bought him with a broken leg thats great of you! people are so stupid sometimes! whay would they put him in a rotting trailer? Poor horse. O well now hes all better and you saved him!Do you no how they kill the horses that go to the meat factory? They stick them down a chute, aim a gun in the remote direction of their head, and thats If they can use them. You dont wanna know how its done if they have a disease and cant be used

Hias. more about cantering
Bachie was a trotter on the track and he paces once and a while but he mostly just trots really really fast when i ask him to canter. He is really honest he trys to understand when i tell him to get it, but he just cannot seem to grasp the concept. I have tried lots and lots of ground poles (my instructor had the same idea about getting him to canter after he jump them) and he trots them well but just cant seem to pick up the canter. HELP!?! i can get him to go over a jump sometimes but he doesnt really even jump it. He steps over it. He doest understand that he needs to rock back on his haunches and use his back legs to propell him over the jump. He kind of just steps and dives over the jump. oh boy... btw- do any of you standardbreds do a funny head flippy thing when they are impatient or anxious or bored? like tossing their head but really high up in a circular motion? thanks alot for you help it really is great to get information for somebody who has experience in this sort of thing. and make sure to keep me updated on you excursions with all of your horses!

i sometimes wonder if people are attached to the papers or their horses?? i guess i've kinda rescued all three of my horses and i didn't realize it. my mule has got an intrusting story but to long and my jakers is something that horse is someting that'll give you a run for your money. i'm jakes 7th you can imagine how this horse was around people and new things, he didn't trust anybody. after awhile he'd calm down and he'd started to trust people and he even loved eing loved by my sister and me...but jake still had a problem...he was very barn sour...well jake had been on the place for a while and there was no change, he just wouldn't leave the barn without throwing a fit...i'd decided that i'd have to sell jake at the end of this summer if he hadn't gotten better. i couldn't afford two horses that coudln't do much. well word got out that i was selling jake and within a week i had someone who'd buy him. well i found out the guy that wanted to buy him was a horse wheeler dealer and i coudln't let jake go throught that again. so i was gonna wait for another buyer. well at our rodeo this lady that i know was wanting me to try out for rodeo queen and i said no that i didn't have a good horse to ride...well the lady said i've got a horse that you can ride and i said well i have this horse that i can ride but...and then she interups and asked what kind of horse he is and i said a tb she asked what was he like and i told her that he was gentle till you got him away from home..then she says to sell him...i said he's coming a long ways...nope she says to sell him...that's when i decided that jake was going no where...and a couple of weeks later i started riding jake outside the pins and away form barns! i was so proud of jake...he still gives me problems somtimes, but in the end i'm so proud of what he's done...well i'm living you another vote!

i read your comment on desert beauty and i thought wow that was amazing...i've got a horse, Question, and some road construction people had left a gate down letting question and festus out, question foundered and people told me to sell him. and when we tried to get the road construction to pay for what they did to question they asked if he had papers, well no he's not papered. so the road construction said to send him to the glue factory. i was so hurt when they said that, but i couldn't do that to my i tried to retire him but question wasn't ready to retire he missed being ridin so i rode him very little, cuz he couldn't go far without being in pain, then we found this founder free stuff that will help a horse get over founder and with in two weeks of using this stuff question was a brand new horse! and he's so much happier and i'm so glad that i didn't give up on him....i hope that you continue to rescue horses. you've got a good heart to give this horse a've got a vote from me...

I think its really cool...
hi, i just wanted to let you konw that i think that it is really cool how you rescued Embert. If my parents let me rescue horses i would have soo many i wouldn't know what to do with them all. and i also think that it was very noble for you to rescue one with a broken leg. I mean you never knew if he was ever going to be completely healed or even sound again! If you have any secrets on getting Embert to canter i would love to hear them because i have been having a very difficult time with Bachie. I can get him to gallop and canter in my friends 10 acre feild, but i cant get him to canter on a lunge line, while im riding him in an arena, in my pasture, or after we land jumps. My instructer and i are not making that much progress with his cantering and i really want to make him into a 3 day eventer. Any advice??? Oh, and btw- Embert is absolutely gorgeous and i was really surprised to learn about how tall he was! Bach is only 15hh and Embert is 16.3! WOW! i didnt know standardbreds got that high! Thanks again! tay11692 :o)

Its really cool that you want to start a ex-racer standardbred horse rescue. I am going to start a horse rescue, no particular breeds though, just whatever needs my help [: wow, he is really lucky that he didn't lose his hoof, and that all he got out of that was a broken leg, it could have been much worse =/ I love the third picture on the bottom, is that Rocky? if it is he is just a handsome and Embert <3 you are very lucky (:

You're horse is beautiful too, or should i say handsome. do you take in injured race horses or something? i was just wondering because it says you got Embert from a broken leg, and you will be getting rocky if he doesn't race again.
