Do you recognize him? Think back to a little baby posted earlier this week. That's right, it's Jett! All grown up.
We had practice last night and Jett and his buddy Sunny were there for practice (Jett's owner is in charge of the drill team). After practice, I got to hop on Jett. Wowza. Is that boy trained!! He is even more responsive than Rain and there's a HUGE age gap. In fact, with Jett being six this year, he ranks up there with Zeke for being trained. That's right!
So happy to get to watch Jett and his owner through the years. And watch Jett grow up and learn. It's amazing what an education will do for a horse.
I get so wrapped up with the older horses that I forget that they were all young once, just like Jett. It's just a pleasure to watch him. I didn't really have much to do with anything other than being at the action and bringing Savanna home for $20, skin and bone. Little did I know Jett was in that "wormy" belly.
It's amazing what will happen when you take a chance. And even more when you put a ton of time and effort into that chance.
I'm just so happy that everything worked out. Had Jett stayed with us, he would have been lost in the shuffle of the old horses and Jett really is the type that needs attention. And it would have been a shame after seeing what he can do. I can't say that I'm nearly as dedicated as Jett's owner. In fact I am not as dedicated a rider, but Jett's owner is one in a million and it really is fun watching Jett progress.
Crazy how life's twists and turns will lead you to some amazing horses.
Keep up the great work Jett and Stacy.
