Even Odds Training Update
From the trainer:
"Even has been fantastic since he has arrived at Hidden K Stables! He has fantastic ground manners and quickly adjusted to his new pasture mates. He has lunged and free lunged wonderfully. Even is currently working under saddle at the walk, trot, and canter, focusing on straightness and canter leads. He even took his first crossrails under saddle! He is always very willing to figure out what is being asked of him and is showing improvement from day to day." K. Younger
Meet Even Odds!
We are excited to announce that our 5th rescue horse, Even Odds has joined us! Through the efforts of Beth Walker and Kris Young, Even was pulled from a kill pen in Pennsylvania. And with the help of Rebecca Bolton, his transport to NC was covered and he arrived at HKSR&R on October 19th. Even is a 6 year old, 16hh, registered Off the Track Thoroughbred gelding who last raced on 8/13/2011. Since his arrival, Even has adjusted very well to life at HKSR&R. He has a very sweet, even-tempered nature and has good ground manners. Even's retraining began with lunging and groundwork, which he seems to already have experience with, and we are now moving forward with his under-saddle retraining. We believe that this sweet, smart boy will be ready for his forever home in no time!
