First off, Ace! He went to TTC this weekend with the wonderful Erin O'Rourke and won the 18" Jumpers Division (his first time over a course at a show!) and placed in the 2' class! He schooled the Beginner Novice Event course like a pro! Way to go for the pair!
Second, we have a new rescue! Say a big welcome to "All Bets are Off", AKA "Bets" an 8 year old Paint mare! We know she doesn't look skinny now, but that's all due to the hard work of TTC in Mocksville, NC! They took her in as an owner surrender, along with her two pasture mates, when her owner couldn't care for her anymore. She came in with a body score of 1-2, but has obviously flourished. A sweet and willing mare, TTC thought she might be ideal for our program, and asked us to evaluate! We agreed, and so she has moved to HKSR&R, and has already been started under saddle! More picks to come, but today she lunged and rode walk/trot in our indoor arena, and was absolutely bombproof when the plane flew overhead! We think she may have some minimal experience under saddle, at least with being handled, but right now she doesn't have much steering! Look for more information soon, and hopefully soon this sweet girl (also barefoot sound) will be looking for her forever home!
