I grew up with horses and have been riding all my life. I ride hunter/jumper and currently own two retired horses: an 11 year old OTTB, Goose, who was retired early due to medical reasons and a 26 year old appendix, Ben, who I've had since he was 10. I bought Goose 4 years ago. We started out doing the green and modified hunters at our local circuit (up to 2ft 9in). After a couple of shows I switched him to jumpers. I jumped him up to 3ft 9in at home but right as we were really figuring things out and excelling he had nephrosplenic entrapment colic and had to have surgery. I brought him back slowly but we were faced with multiple other medical issues. He had begun roaring and his melanomas began rapidly growing so I decided to retire him. Now I am looking for a job where I will be able to ride and learn as much as I can about horses and riding. Eventually, my goal is to have a facility where I can retrain OTTBs.
