When I saw her ad, I passed her up. OTTB and too young. My husband liked her, though, so I called. (He can talk me into anything) Her new owner dropped the ad price by several hundred while we talked ...

I adopted Caddymaster several years ago. I wanted him instantly when I saw his picture online. There was a gentleness in his eyes. He has a forever home now and has become a part of my family!

Everyone in my family loves him and he is e...

Thank you for Absolutely Sweet and New Track, New Life

I obtained my mare, Absolutely Sweet (whom I call Stelle), from Cynthia Rickman for a donation to your organization (see below). Stelle is the reason I downloaded your fabulous online guide, “A Guide to Understanding and Retraining Your Off Track Thoroughbred,” to help me understand her and actually train her. Your guide was absolutely critical to my success with my mare. She had raced nine tim...

Thank you for your help with “Soldier”

Soldier came to my barn from a kill pen at auction, he had strangles was almost completely blind, 300+ lbs underweight, and covered in scars. After being at my barn for a few months, Soldier gained some weight and was cleared of strangles, at this point they realized he was blind, and believed he would be to "unpredictable" for the lesson program. I met him the week before he was to return to auct...

ROCKY TIMES AND KATIE FREI REPRESENT! Because of You, He is in the Right Hands

Some retired racehorses are so athletic, so high strung and reactive that only the advance rider is a good fit.  This isn’t a problem so long as the horse gets into the right hands.  Rocky Times is one of those “high strung Thoroughbreds,” but lucky for him he got into the right hands so his hyper-reactiveness proved to be a great asset in his new career - Three Day Eventing. Rocky Times wa...

A SOLDIER SAVES A SOLDIER – Your Support at Work

As “Soldier”  stood on the line at the auction in New Holland, he wondered how he had gotten there.  Frightened and alone, he did everything asked of him, even being ridden through the auction – he never took a wrong step. Somehow he knew he was in trouble – this wasn’t a good place to be.  “Soldier” didn’t know what was going to happen, but it was obvious by his “battle scars” he’d been th...
