Meet Bounty, who has been rehabbing with my trainer Karin for a couple of years now. You would never guess by looking at him that he just turned 30 last March. My job is to ride him about once a week, in between Karin’s therapeutic longeing sessions. When he came to Willow Tree he really did look his age, and had a pretty debilitating situation going on in his hips, back and pelvis. But he’s a trooper and what we like to call a real “tryer” and has worked with us to let us help him rebuild strength in some of the broken down parts. He’s been a true teacher for me too, as I learn what a rider has to do to rebalance a horse with various issues. And it helps that he’s a real love-bug. Just look at that sweet face!
