This past March I got a new horse. His name is Sven (JC: Four Forty Strand) and he's a 2016 OTTB gelding.
This past Summer we've been spending a lot of time getting to know each other. So far, I'd say we've bonded! He's been such a shining light in my life and has the best can-do attitude. He's very willing to try anything I ask even when he doesn't want to.
We've been working really hard on his canter and in the past couple weeks we finally had a breakthrough. He is feeling so much stronger and I'm so impressed with how he's been improving.
I can't wait to see how the winter goes and I'm excited for the 2022 show season.
