Hunter. Water, big deal! (With photos!)

Published by under Day to Day


One of our best show ponies, Hunter has a dual personality.  At home, around the barn and paddocks, he is so ho-hum and laid-back about life we sometimes wonder if he is even awake!


Slow and clutsy, he plods along, “dum dee dum, goin’ to the zoo, yup, goin’ to the zoo …” and has earned his stable name of Tank!


But put a saddle on this guy, mount up and he’s a changed pony!  Point him to a show ring and he’ll bring you back a ribbon every time.  Here’s some of his early backing and training photos.
