I have had Bo since he was 12 years old. When I first got him, Bo could be quite the handful when he wanted to be. For a long time, he refused to canter without bucking (no pain issues or anything, just pure cheek), he spooked ALOT and was very difficult to catch in the summer. Despite all that, he was still so loveable.

There have been times where this boy has had me in tears and at my witts end but I have always persevered with Bo because he really is such a kind boy- even though he is quite tricky.
Bo is a timid horse and I spent a long time building his confidence in me, it did take him a while to come to trust me but it was so worth the journey. We took some time to find each others buttons and now we are completely on the same page. I could never replace such a special horse, he really is one of a kind and I trust him with my life (now!).

Bo is 19 years old now and because I am a full time Primary School Teacher we don’t get out to do much. Moreover, Bo is arthritic which means I have to be careful with his workload. Unfortunately, that means I can’t go out and compete as I would like to do one day. We do a lot of hacking out and we both love groundwork so that works well for us.

Everyone deserves to have their special horse, it makes it all so worthwhile.
