Nodtotheheros, or Noddy as he known as at home, is a 1997 bay thoroughbred gelding, standing 16hh, who came off the racetrack when he was a five year old. He had spent the first few years of his life racing at Assiniboia Downs. He then came to our barn, SandyLane Stable, as a boarding horse. He has such a sweet personality and a beautiful way of traveling. WE would watch his owner at the time ride him, and wish that he was ours. A number of years later, through a series of events, he became ours. Let the training begin!! WE stared his schooling with basic dressage. As he progressed, we gradually added the ground work for jumping. He showed a natural ability over fences. We took him to his first schooling show where he placed well in both the flat and over fence classes up to 3’. His training is continuing as he is schooling 3’3”. In the four years that we have owned him he has come a long way. He has attended many schooling shows, the MLHA All Breed Show as well as the Royal Manitoba Winter Fair. He as attained many wins and top placing’s in Road Hack, Show Hack, Dressage Hack, Hunter and Jumper. Noddy is extremely well mannered in hand as he will ground tie for grooming and tacking up as well as free longing on voice command. His sweet temperament and personality shows as he is also used for lessons, both flat and over fences, for riders as young as eight years. He knows when he has an inexperienced rider as he will go much slower and with more caution as to an experienced rider. Noddy is a great addition to our barn and he will be here for many years to come.
