Ella & Stryder
Wednesday, May 1, 2024
We got Stryder in 2016 from Days End Horse Farm in Maryland as a baby. He was a rescue horse that was originally going to be for my older sister we raised him and started training him at home. Later Stryder and I had gone to a few trainers for evaluation and were told that I wouldn’t be a good fit on him, wouldn’t be able to ride him, he was too green, he was too hot, and a little dangerous because of that. When my mom and dad started discussing leasing him out to experienced rider is when I decided to start training him myself. Stryder and I have been best friends since, doing English, jumping, going for rides on trails and the beach, and now competing in game shows and rodeos.
