What do you call her now that she’s home in your barn?                                                                                                                  
We are still calling her Meg.

From what location did you get her?                                                                                                                        
Meg is from the Kentucky facility. We drove the whole way down there to pick her up. It was 1400 miles round trip.

What are her favorite treats?                                                                                                                  
She loves alfalfa pellets and carrots.

Did she find a buddy at your farm? If so, what is her new friend’s name?                                                                                        
Her buddy is my other horse Ted E. Bear

Have your friends seen her yet?                                                                                                                            
My friends in Pony Club have seen her and like her a lot!

What do you plan to do with her?                                                                                                                    
I want to do either eventing or dressage with her. It will depend on her aptitude and interests.

What are you working on with her right now?                                                                                                                
Right now we are working on transitions and bending.

What is your plan with her for the next few months?
Once we have a firm base of dressage, I would like to start jumping over small obstacles a few times a week.

What’s your favorite thing about your new horse?
I love her intelligence and level-headedness. When you ride her, she finds her rhythm and stays there. She has a good work ethic. She has all these new sites and sounds, and she is fine with them. I like her personality. Our personalities really seem to match.

What do you think the best part of the Challenge program is?
The best part of the Challenge program is working with Meg. She is a really amazing horse.

Have you discovered any cute or funny habits or quirks about your new horse yet?
When she eats her food, she likes to drink water in between bites sometimes. She isn’t the most affectionate. If she likes something doesn’t really show it. But she loves getting her neck scratched.
