The popularity of the off-track Thoroughbred is also running high in Germany, reports owner/rider Julia Francke.
Her mare One Night Girl was born in 2000 and was on the track until 2009, after she was retrained for “military” riding, which is similar to Eventing in the US. Francke mainly does dressage with her mare, and enjoys lower-level jumping and trails with her mare, who she has owned since last year.
Francke’s trainer Nina is pictured on her.

That is great to hear OTTB’s enjoy the popularity of their U.S. counterparts!
That mare is enjoying her job. Look at the ears pricked forward and the focused look on her face. Why would anyone want to ride anything else?
