My name is Cassie, and this blog is about the adventures and happenings in the life of my mare Wind and I. Sharing out ups and our down, our progress in training, both forward and backwards, our adventures at competitions, whether we are victorious or not, and anything else that will come along, like they always do when you live in a life with horses.
So, a little about Miss Wind! Wind In The Forest, or Wind for short is a 2003 Off The Track Thoroughbred (OTTB) Mare. Wind was born on May 19, 2003 at Rojan Farms in New York. Wind is by Forest Camp, out of Even The Wind by Irish Tower. Her whole pedigree can be found here: http://www.pedigreequery.com/wind+in+the+forest2
|Baby Wind (1.5-2 years old)|
|Forest Camp (Wind's Sire)|
|Forest Camp (Wind is a spitting image of her papa)|
Wind started a total of 27 times, earning a total of $97,434, she raced at every track in New York, but mostly she raced at Finger Lakes Racing Course. Wind's racing career ended on December 1, 2008 where she won by great lengths. Wind and I came together on February 1, 2008 where I payed a whopping $1.00 for her, and she was mine all mine!!
Wind and I have been through a lot the past 5 years, but our battles with training problems, injuries and lameness issues, have made us stronger as individuals and has made our bond stronger than ever.
Together Wind and I primarily train and compete in Eventing, but we are always game to try our "hoof" in any discipline that we come across. This year, we are really hoping to get back into the show ring, finances and training/health provided. So, I hope y'all will join Wind and I on our journey together, as we bond, grow, train and show.
