CANTER Colorado entered a new chapter in our story this weekend, taking in our very first CANTER owned horse. This is a huge step for us, and we are all so excited about the progression of our program.
Tough Brown is a horse that was purchased by a Colorado resident from a trainer who listed him with CANTER California, and she has now donated him into our program. He's not currently available, so you will not see him on our CANTER site, but we're evaluating him and will likely have him ready to list on the site in about 30 days (depending on how he progresses in his training, of course!)
CANTER Colorado is ALSO partnering with The Harvest House in Boulder to hold a smashing Derby Party! In addition to all of the expected fun, we're also holding a silent auction to benefit CANTER. Here is information about event, and we would LOVE to see our Colorado COTH friend there! https://www.facebook.com/events/503467933049050/
As many of you know, CANTER Colorado is a project that is very near and dear to my heart, and I'm just so awed and humbled with how it's grown over the last year. A huge round of applause for our executive director, Jamie Girouard, who has made it her personal project and has driven huge successes, and also to our volunteers who have really aided the growth of the program!
Congratulations! Basque (Basque Fantasee) and Cash (Arc Tangent) are both
OTTB's I bought in Colorado when we lived there. Cash was actually a Colorado
bred, and a one-race wonder who had better things to do than race around a track.
chestnutmarebeware, that is EXACTLY why I got involved in this program! I have a CANTER horse from New England, and had one from Michigan. Now I also have one from Colorado (occupational hazard, I guess!)
Needs a Nap, that video was Sunday, I think. We've had more snow here in the last two weeks than we had ALL WINTER. We had about 24" down last week, and got another 4" or so overnight here in Fort Collins...I think it's been less farther south. Tough B is up west of Golden, so ... yeah, snow. I am WELL done with it, myself!!
BasqueMom, we met Terry Vondy--Cash's trainer--last year He's still running at Arapahoe!
And thank you all for your congrats! It's been so exciting to be a part of it and see it grow
