How We Met

We found "butch" on the internet. Short description and no picture but he was in the area so we decided to try this "western trail" horse out. When we arrived we saw a beautiful paint in a less then acceptable pasture with weeds literally to your waist.Due to the amount of white he has he was sun burnt and wrinkled. Poor guy didn't even have a current coggins, much less shots and worming. When he arrived at our barn for a lease to buy he had no manners, NO discipline, and no sense of cues. He bucked, kicked, and did not stop. We understood he needed LOTS of tlc and reschooling but we saw potential that no-one else could.Not even so called "professional trainers" could ride his bucks. We have worked with him for a year and he is now competing at local hunter shows, always in the ribbons. Now "Phoenix" enjoys his new career, horse buddies, a sixty acre pasture, and of course not being sunburnt this summer. He was definatly our diamond in the rough and we couldn't ask for a better turn-out..

hi
wow! he's so beautiful! yall look awesome!
riding english must take alot of grace. us cowgirls can enter the show ring rompin and stompin but you jumpers and eventers have to be calm cool and collected. it must be alot of hard work and judging by you pic, you're doing a pretty good job. keep up the good work!8)

Hello
Tep! Rosie is the my bestfriend...! He and I were taking a nap together out in the field yesterday! And even though her past paster buddie left, her and I got to bond one-on-one for about a month and a half, and now my friends horse is at my house with her she still is just thinking about me! It was funny, today her and I were goofing around and I was getting her ready to go to my aunts tomorrow and Cabin (My friends horse) She wont let him get near me! I think she is a bit to protective! Haha, but she is the best, even if she has almost bucked me off about 5 times in the 6-8 months ive had her!

But she is the best Christmas prestent I could ever have! She is the best!

Here is a vote!

UPDATE:
We took Phoenix to a local show on Saturday and he placed first in Hunter over Crossrails! We are so happy for his accomplishments, not only the ribbons, but how much he has changed his life for the better.

your story is so sweet! The horse world needs more people who do that sort of thing. I have my horses at my house, but at my friends barn this family rescued a 6 year old (beautiful) thoroughbred from being slaughtered. He was a race horse, and was badly abused. The trainer they were working with tried to use a crop on him and the horse freaked out, so now they have given up on him and are trying to sell him. It's really sad. You did a good thing with Phoenix.

Come visit me, Kat, Star & Willy.

cool
Your story sounds sort of like mine and Tonka's. He used to buck and gallop at the same time and not stop except his problem was that he was so small no adults could ride him so I was his only trainer! But now he is the BEST pony ever and a great jumper/show/trail/anything pony! Your pony is very pretty and is a good jumper too! It looks like he has come a long way! I voted!
