Tillo – Race Horse to Trail Horse

Trail Riding Off-the-Track Thoroughbred Tillo in Colorado
Tillo is turning out to be an “old soul trail horse”…10,000 feet, he leads 4 other horses across a frozen stream…through chest high willows in a bog! I can’t believe it. He’s not so great in the ring yet but we’re having such a great fall I don’t want to go there yet.

Elizabeth’s Note: Tillo was a Prospect Horse For Sale on the Bits & Bytes Farm Web site when Lydia Dequine purchased him in July 2012 to be her her event horse and trail horse. Tillo was bred by one of our favorite horse breeder/sellers in Lexington, KY whom we have sold many horses for. Tillo is Lydia’s second purchase from Bits & Bytes Farm – the first being Eleanor’s Groom.

Lydia and her veterinarian husband Lou have a beautiful ranch in Oak Creek, Colorado where they host special events, weddings, Pony Club Clinics and equestrian events. If you live in the Colorado area, check out the new Web site we have just created for Flying Horse Ranch. Think about getting a group together to ride the trails or school on the cross-country course. The ranch is also a great place for a family reunion. It is a very special venue for an outdoor wedding complete with a carriage ride. There are many locations on the ranch to host your special event. Be sure to visit Eleanor’s Groom and Tillo if you visit the ranch!
