I sent my beloved Indy to Chesterland Farms, under the legendary expertise of Olympian Bruce Davidson. I miss my buddy so terribly, but it is for the best. A former trainer disliked Indy, having little to say of him in a positive way and encouraging me to sell him, especially after he dumped her.
When I buy a horse, it is a forever contract. I have never resold a horse and have no plans to ever do so. I knew my horse had what it takes and to hear Bruce Davidson say, "He's a great horse with three lovely gaits. I love him!" makes my determination to weather the storm an affirmation. I will NEVER go to a hunter barn again. Cross-training is where it's at for me!
Indy has jumped every fence on Chesterland Farm's formidible collection of logs and cross-country jumps. Bruce complimented his flatwork. All of this with zero drugs, calmers, or supplements. This is what a true horseman can do!
