5 Horses In A Broke Down Trailer Prove Why Thoroughbreds Are The Best Horses Ever!

I have to do a bit of a brag post because I am so proud of our horses. My barn focuses on thoroughbred restart, we have 11 OTTBs. Yesterday we went to a jumper show in the nasty weather with 3 of them and 2 TB crosses and they all had a great day. On the way home our trailer tire started to lose air on the interstate and we were able to get off an exit and get into a large parking lot. While waiting for extra help the horse calmly munched on hay and let strangers visit.

Once we went to change the tire the horses happily unloaded in the parking lot and stood quietly eating carrots and meeting people.

My students (teenagers) asked if they could go through the drive through nearby with the horses so they called McDonald’s and they excitedly let us ride through!

The horses were so calm and happy for random people to take pictures, feed them treats and pet them! The entire time they were bareback in halters and leadropes.

They happily loaded back onto the trailer and went home once we were good to go!  To say I have some versatile, willing, happy and adjustable thoroughbreds (and students!) is an understatement! These are wonderful horses and always my breed of choice!

    My Daughter rides her horses through the nearby Taco Bell drive thru all the time. Customers and employees are always taking pictures of it.

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Safari. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Kudos
