My Horses

My Race Horse

This is Red Knight.  He is my ex-race horse.  He actually won a little money on the track.  Before I owned him he did some eventing too.  Now Red is my lesson horse.  During the first six months I owned him, we worked on slowing down.  I can learn on him and he can learn with me.  We will be moving up to slightly bigger jumps this year and working on first level dressage so we can do the combined testing.  I took Red fox hunting and he loved the running, but he didn’t like the standing still while the hounds were searching for scent. 


About A Cain

I am originally from New York State and moved to Pennsylvania for college and graduate school. My husband and I later lived in California and West Virginia, and then we were transferred to North Carolina. I learned to ride as an adult, in North Carolina. I have two horses now: one wild-and-wooly teenager who is learning from me, and one former race horse that has turned into a school master for me. They are both pretty sensible and great on trails, so we go everywhere. They live with me on my own North Carolina mini farm. I love to sit on my deck in the evening and watch them graze.
