is Image's Golden Sunshine, known as Shooter around the barn.
Shooter was a breeding stallion and show horse when he was younger. He
wasn't treated well, I know because he didn't have any trust in people
and was nervous all the time when I got him.
I got him for my twelfth birthday and I am now nineteen. Shooter trusts
me and is so calm now. He only gets nervous when I leave him. He also
gets very jealous when I touch other animals. Shooter is such a great
horse now, he helps me teach therapeutic riding. We both help out at
other therapeutic riding stables, too, and he is very good with the
clients. So he is special to many people, not just me.
If it wasn't for him I don't know what I would be doing today. He taught
me so much, like responsibility, caring, and how to earn a horse's
trust. I love this picture of him, he's so handsome!
