    "After my daughter and wife adopted a Standardbred from New Vocations, followed by an Off the Track Thoroughbred I found myself stuck at home every night after work until late in the evening when they returned from the barn I decided in order to ever see them I had to get a horse of my own!So, at the age of 50 having only ridden a half dozen or so times… I started taking lessons on the sly and started looking to add to our growing herd! Dot put Match and I together...she picked perfectly!Match loves the trails …. He loves to get out in front and move out.We have ridden in parades where he loves showing offMatch has been shown in SPHO shows we had had good year in 2011 winning the SPHO Elite Trail Championship, and finishing in the top 3for the year in 3 other classes and placing 4th in the Trail class at the Standardbred nationals in New Jersey. I bought an Australian saddle as it appeared to be the most secure saddle out there…and I rode in that for quite a while…for 2012 year I gave myself a new challenge. and it was all about showing Match’s qualities off…Saddleseat…From an Aussie saddle to a flat cutback!
