We cantered for the first time today! I was inspired watching “Hollywood” and his mom, Cherie, as they cantered for the first time, they looked so happy working together. Bubs and I just had to try it.
We needed the lunge line to get there but with Elizabeth’s encouragement, Bubba went forward like a champ.
I’ve had Bubba for three months and everyday I spend with him is incredibly special and fulfilling. My little OTTB is not at all the crazy, spooky racehorse that people predicted. He has such a sharp mind and kind heart – he does anything I ask of him without question. When we ride, I see him listening and responding to me – and I work hard to reciprocate. Every ride we share is a joyful occasion. And every milestone we reach is a cherished reward. My little Bubba is a very special guy.
