Boo's Story

November 30, 2021

”Quillotano (barn name Boo), is a 14 year old OTTB. He raced for 6 years and was a stud before being gelded and retired. I purchased him from a family friend earlier this year. He has arthritis in his rear hocks and his right rear fetlock. He got cortisone injections in his hocks, which helped a lot. We are currently working towards being trail riding partners.

I volunteer at a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that helps those with emotional and developmental challenges called the The R I D E Foundation- Recovery In Deserving Equine. The founder/CEO restarted Boo (and restarted me, if we’re being honest). Boo is now sometimes used in our at risk youth programs, as he is very skittish and anxious at times (hence the name Boo). He teaches the kids how to create a strong partnership and how to work in tandem to overcome emotional issues, both for him and the participants”.
