I am a Level 3 certified Harmony Horsemanship instructor and have worked with somewhere around 100 Off-Track Thoroughbreds in my lifetime. I have a special passion for OTTB warhorse mares and have participated in the Retired Racehorse Project Makeover for five consecutive years (2015-2019). In 2017 I was honored as the RRP Thoroughbred Makeover Ambassador.
I compete in Mountain Trail Challenge, Classical Dressage, and Western Dressage and teach regular lessons and clinics in building confidence, strengthening connection, trailer loading and Dressage fundamentals.
I am currently blessed to have 4 lovely mares and 1 filly, and I have re-homed several others in the past. My current horses include:
Lady Macjazz (Shakespeare x Jazz Lady (Indian Charlie)) - "Freja" is my first horse and 2015 Makeover partner
Moon (Pleasant Tap x Affirmable (Affirmed)) - Moon is a New Vocations graduate and my 2016 Makeover partner
Quality Hey (Exclusive Quality x Hey Skip (Skip Away)) - "Q" is a Turning for Home graduate and my 2017 Makeover partner
Worthy of Wings (Evansville Slew x Fancy Halo (Sparkly)) - "Worthy" is a Caribbean Thoroughbred Aftercare graduate and my 2019 Makeover partner. Worthy raced 138 times!
Lady Dyanaformer - My little Wonder Woman :-) "Dyana" is Freja's first foal and was born April 7, 2018. Her sire is Vertiformer, and I am very excited for her future. I am preparing her to start a career in racing and then transition as my future sporthorse and potential Makeover partner in 2020 something.
I am a true mare guy and love how they connect when you take the time to build a relationship. Learn more about me and all my lovely ladies on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ottbguy
