Nearly Sent to Slaughter – Instead “Max” Brings Joy to New Owner

Matts Memo immediately bonds with his new teenage owner

Matt’s Memo aka “Max” has found a new Mom! She’s a teenaged girl who fell in love with “Max’s” picture on his ad (funny, I can really sympathize with her there), and once she saw “Max”, apparently the feelings were mutual. She gave him a huge hug, and he responded with some gentle nuzzling. We were a little concerned about her lack of formal training (she’s been riding at home and on trails for a couple of years), the connection between the two of them was apparently such that once she got on him, he let out a big sigh and walked around the ring with her like a 20 year old school horse. “Max” really seemed to want to take care of her.

“Max” was a unique, rescue situation that I enjoyed greatly, but it was unfortunate that he was unsuitable for jumping. Thanks to him though, I was able to get back into riding enough to feel good about my riding again (rather than wishing my muscles would do what I asked!), and I honestly had some of the best “feels” ever on him when we were so in tune that it felt like all I had to do was think what I wanted to do, and he’d do it.

Thank you again for everything!!
