Prince of Rhodes is a testament to how great an older racehorse can be, says his owner Ed Schlairet.
Pictured at Caesar Creek State Park in Ohio on a blustery cold day, the pair watched the waves roll across the lake before taking a walk through the water.
The pair enjoys trail riding for miles and when they’re in the mood for competition, they participate in gymkhana series shows, says Schlairet, who notes that Prince has taken a turn working at a kids summer camp, and is still unbeatable in a friendly horse race between friends.
“He has taught more first-time riders than I can count,” he says. “But I have yet to come across another horse who can beat him in a heads-up, full-on race. He will make you smile and your eyes water. I don’t know if you can tell, but I sure do love that horse of mine!”
