    While I love the warmbloods, I’m still partial to these amazing Thoroughbreds. So many of them are unwanted after their racing years are over (if they make it to the track) and there are fewer homes available with the warmbloods being so popular in the showrings. So glad to see articles like this promoting these wonderful horses!

    Sue your stories are SO great. What you are doing for the OTTB’s is so far-reaching, steadfast and full of love for these wonderful horses. I look forward to every single post! 🙂

    So good to read about these shows and the opportunity for these great horses to show off their many talents and athleticism. Great credit belongs to the trainers and riders who have turned their lives around and given them a new career. Best of luck to all who participate, and many thanks to all those who work so hard to put these shows together.
