I am moving and can't take my guy with me. Desert is an 8 yr old gelding that retired from racing this August. He has started retraining and is super quiet and sweet. He's already been in the arena with all the lessons and jumping going on and is not fazed at all, never has been.
He recently pulled a shoulder muscle and needs some recovery. He does have a large splint and is over at the knees and that will most likely prevent him from jumping at least competitively. I believe a good chiropractor will have the shoulder problem fixed quickly. My chiropractor only comes in town once a month.
Desert is a very big horse, but also a very easy ride, not incredibly lazy, but not really forward either. Though a crop is generally carried to get him moving. As he was getting more and more balanced and learning how to carry himself his movement became bigger. He also comes with a free month supply of Smart Flex III that just came to the house today. This horse is important to me and I will need some references.
