    All Names Taken was adopted in 2014 and after Stacey Westfall took him for 30 days of training. "II bought Al as a 29th birthday present to myself and I couldn't be happier with him. He's grown up and matured so much in the last year we've been able to do some really fun things. We went down to the KY New Vocations Show and placed quite well in our classes. We also were able to attend the first show at the newly christened World Equestrian Center and had a blast competing against all the warmbloods. More important than our competitions together is how much we have learned and have been able to do as a team. If I would have pushed him two years ago I would have ruined him as he was anxious, nervous, and guarded. We spent the last 18 months doing flat work, transitions, and poles on the ground. While this was tedious and trying at times I'm so glad I did it because now I have a confident horse who will jump anything. Without getting too emotional and corny I am very happy with Al. I want to let other adopters (or future adopters) know that even if your horse isn't showing 2'6", novice eventing or scoring 70% at training in their first year don't be discouraged. I know I was. All I read about were these superstar OTTB's that were so quiet and trainable. You don't hear about the ones who refuse a poll on the ground for 2 months or aren't balanced enough to canter in the indoor arena all winter. #beenthere #itwasworththewait." - Adopter Bethany Siehr
