My Horse Profile

Thoroughbred from clinton, CT

Teddy

About Me

Active within 15 Days

I am from clinton, CT and I've been a Club Horse member for 2 months and 20 days

Nicknames: T, Ted, Mr.Ted, baby boy, King For a Day(show name)

Age: 13 years old

Gender: Gelding

Breed: Thoroughbred

Height: 15/16 hands

Color: bay

Type of Riding: english (hunter/jumper)

My Horse's Achievements: Teddy's past is sort of checkered...and somewhere along the line teddy was beaten, starved, forgotten, and just downright tortured. He was an overused lesson horse at around age 6, and a few years later he was sold to a girl in high school, who apparently 'loved' him, but they sure had a funny way of showing it, because when i got teddy he was in need of some serious help, and fast. When i got him he hadn't been ridden in over a year, he was beaten, and he apparently wasn't worth feeding. He was at least 300 pounds underweight and he had a whole bunch of issues, but for some reason Teddy decided it was okay to trust me, but i didn't trust him, i said i did, and i thought i did, but i never really understood what trust was...until he got colic in march of 2014. My entire world came crashing down in less than 2 seconds. all i could do was scream "Please don't take him! i cant live without him!" i cried for 3 days, and slept for about 5 hours each night before i woke up and felt sick, because my horse was 2 hours away at an emergency clinic fighting for his life. He came home a few days later, and i promised myself i would never regret any of the time i spent with teddy, and i don't. I finally really know what trust is...when you can put your life if someone else's hands without worrying, and when you feel like nothing can harm you with your with them, that's trust...real trust. In these past months something amazing happened, something clicked between us and suddenly cantering isn't an anxiety attack waiting to happen, jumping isn't a horrifying thing, and going to the barn isn't a chore anymore, its a privilege. Teddy has gone through so much, and i am so proud of everything he has gone through, hes my beacon of hope, and my guardian angel. he proves to everyone that no matter what you have gone through all things are possible if you really try. It still shocks me that i was looking for something to make my life whole, something that made me feel okay for once in my life. and that something was 5 minutes away from me and i never even knew.

My Horse's Favorite Treat: Peppermints, or really anything mint flavored

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: eat, sleep, jump, and eat some more

Pet Peeves: being bathed, having fly spray applied, having a girth on, being ridden bareback, nylon halters, standing in one place, being woken up.

My Horse's motto: My God is NOT dead.

How We Met

My aunts friend Gina invited me to her house because she had a few horses, and a few days later she got an email from Teddy's owners stating that he was free to a good home and they needed him gone ASAP. Gina told my mom and my mom went to see him. He was supposed to be a Christmas gift but my trainer wasn't too sure is he was the horse for me, so a few days later i went to see him. He was extremely thin and hadn't been ridden in over a year but despite all of that later that night we called and said we would take him. 2 weeks later on December 20th, 2012 Teddy became mine. and since December 20th Teddy has given me something to live for...

Beautiful horse! Here's a tap on your horseshoe! I love your story! I had an Arabian mare (Flicka.) And i didn't want to give up on her. But we ended up rehoming her. My confidence with horses was broken. Because she took off on me and i couldn't stop her. But Copper helped me build up that confidence. I didn't want to trust Copper either. But i kept working with him and he got better and better! I have owned Copper for a little over 2 yrs now. I thank God for Copper! Teddy sounds like an amazing horse!

Leaving a vote, what a wonderful how we met. My Cisco had been in similar circumstances, and while he's not always the easiest horse to ride, we both adore each other and he tries his heart out for me. So glad you two are getting on so well, hope to see Teddy in the spotlight tomorrow! Cheryl & Cisco

Good boy Teddy with the jump!

☆ We had a really nice 3 day weekend. I did not haul to the lake, I rode at home. I took Deacon Friday and Saturday for an early morning ride, around 30 minutes, I then took Whiskey for a 30 minute ride as well. Of course they were sprayed down with the water rake and had spa time. I also gave Rocket a good spraying and they all had their fly masks put on. The flies have been a problem. We BBQ’d ribs and chicken Friday for our celebration of the 4th of July. Cliff and I went Saturday after I was finished with the horses on our monthly feed and grocery shopping trip. We had him another pair of glasses made and ate lunch at Red lobster. We both had the grilled shrimp Caesar salad it was yummy! Have a wonderful day! Whinnies, love & hugs ☆

it jumps!!!
yesterday teddy jumped, like really jumped, his first time jumping something that wasnt a cross rail or a cavaletti, his first time going to it he didnt refuse or anything, then we went to another jump almost 3 times bigger than what he usually jumps and he jumped that without refusing as well. this is *HUGE* for teddy, a few months ago he wouldnt even canter over a ground pole. there are pictures of him jumping them below, i know my EQ is horrendous, but i wasnt expecting him to even jump it, i was preparing for a refusal not a miracle. i usually ride a lot better haha. and this was my last ride on him for almost 2 weeks since im going to corolla. its like he knew it was our last ride and he had to do something amazing

Come visit me, Teddy.

2 fourths and a second...not too bad for our 2nd show and first W/T/C class. So proud of him! no one would have thought that a year ago teddy would ever be showing, let alone cantering on his 2nd show. He did pretty good, a few wrong leads here and there, and really the 2 fourth places were my fault... i will post some pictures from the show soon, and crossing my fingers for good weather on Thursday to have the photographer come

pictures
so i fixed the pictures, they are pretty much in order now, the last 2 are a week before and a week after i got him, its hard to tell how thin he was by the pictures but if i can find old ones of me riding him its shocking how thin he was. I'm also getting professional pictures of him done on the 26th so those will be up in about 3 weeks, *and* there's a show this Sunday so there will be new show pictures(2nd show, first W/T/C class). hopefully there will be some good pictures and teddy will cooperate with the photographer...if he doesn't try to eat everything in sight.

Come visit me, Teddy.
