Life After Rescue
From Christy at AC4H - "A friend from New Jersey came. She took Snippet he will be worked by children and shown (the last one made the A circuit shows). I asked her to take Track Rat and start her show career. This mare has it going on. AC4H retains ownership the horse but Jen will train her and show her with her students. Keep your fingers crossed for this gorgeous girl from kill pen to show ring.."
Track Rat is going to her first show this weekend (6/15) just to watch. Updates soon!
