My Horse Profile

Thoroughbred from State College, PA


About Me

Active within 3644 Days

I am from State College, PA and I've been a Club Horse member for 10 years, 1 month and 12 days

Nicknames: His registered name is "Mitey Slice", and I use "Rags To Riches" as his show name because it tells more about him.

Age: 24 years old

Gender: Gelding

Breed: Thoroughbred

Height: 15.3

Color: Solid bay

Type of Riding: We show in the hunters, we were in 4-H as long as possible, and we love to trailride. Sometimes when friends come over and want to ride Winston, he even lets us put a Western saddle on him to make it more comfortable and safe for the inexperienced rider.

My Horse's Achievements: He is an ex-racehorse and I show hunters, so for us to make that transformation together is something that I am very proud of. We also were reserved champion at the Pennsylvania 4-H horse show in Hunter Under Saddle, and that being judged on him and how he moves and acts really made me proud as well.

My Horse's Favorite Treat: He LOVES "Luck and Love Crunchy Carrot Cake" Horse Treats which are from Reading, PA. My trainer is from there and I brought a box home once for Winston, and now everytime I go back I have to stop at the tack shop for him. Also, he loves sugar cubes and I have taught him to "bow" for it, and also he "shakes" with is front leg!

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: He loves to trailride, and gallop through fields. After we work in the riding ring I always try and take him on a short trailride, even if it is just through the woods to cool him down. He also loves to jump, which I can tell by his expression and the way he acts over fences. I also know he loves to eat, and spend time out in the pasture with his buddies, especially one of our Quarter Horses, Skip.

Pet Peeves: Winston does not like waiting around to be fed. As soon as someone walks into the barn he wants his grain. He shakes his head up and down - up and down until you think it might just fall right off and fly down the barn aisle.

How We Met

My trainer brought two Thoroughbred's from the Philadelphia race track and I wanted him. I think i wanted him because I knew i was horse shopping at the time and really, he was first live horse I saw for sale. I was younger and wanted him right away. No one was suppose to ride him before my trainer did, but she was not around so me and my friend tacked up the two horses and rode, and yes he was very quick legged and did't know where to put his legs, or any of his body parts it seemed. But after that it was love..
