ARCHIBAR

 

I remember driving to work and I couldn't stop thinking about this horse that Lee had advertised on her page . So I thought no time like the better so I pulled over and. Called her. So glad I did because I found my best buddy and that truly special horse. Archibar was a well seasoned race horse. So when he came to me I just let him chill out for a while and adjust to his new lifestyle. This whole retraining has been one of the most rewarding things I have ever done . I am so glad I listened to lee because now we are just having the best of times. I have a wonderful riding instructor in Rosemarie Thiele and she has proved invaluable plus a great friend in Alice Hodges who has also been through the Ott  experience. I have had Archie for 16 mths now and have just been taking our time. I have taken him to the Masters games at Werribee and we have done a few horsemanship clinics. He is now going over to saddle club with me at Merricks. I'm always learning things but the best thing about it is we are learning together. The experience of riding such an intelligent horse is just pure joy. I love him to pieces and am so grateful to Lee and the help she has given me. Cheers Karin Wilson and Archibar.
