–What have you and your horse been up to this summer–preparing for a show, hitting the trails, trying a new sport?
Strutter and I have been doing a lot of trail miles this summer! We’ve done five 25-mile competitions so far, and we just completed our first 50 of the season this weekend. We’ve been doing a lot of conditioning and working extra hard to prepare for more 50s and maybe even a 75 later in the season. And, of course, we’ve been having lots of fun!
–How did you first meet Baxter?
I first met Strutter in July of 2015. I was looking for a way to get into distance riding, and I got in touch with my now-mentor and Strutter’s owner by looking at my local distance riding group’s website. She had five horses at the time, and Strutter was meant to be her husband’s but he doesn’t ride much anymore. Strutter needed a job, I needed a horse, and the rest is history!
What’s your favorite part of your Baxter’s personality?
My favorite thing about Strutter is his work ethic. He can be very silly and quirky, but when we get to a competition and get out on trail, he is all business. Our personalities are very similar, and I think that’s why we get along so well.
What do you like about the Two Horse gear you got as part of the program?
The real question is what DON’T I like about Two Horse Tack gear? It’s sturdy, easy to clean, completely customizable, and comes in any color I want!
