Today's Pet of the Day
Sugar, the Pet of the Day
Name: Sugar
Age: Eight years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Pony, Rural Horse cross
Home: Tbilisi, Georgia
   What makes my pet special is that he helped me overcome very tough times. I hated life, disliked myself, didn't trust anyone in this world, and then along came Sugar. We were searching for a horse for my mom and we found this pony tied to the trees. The owner of the horse told us he was for sale. My mom had me think for a little while. (At the time I had another horse, a dappled bay gelding, which I was slightly afraid of.) I finally decided to buy Sugar, who was then four years of age (meaning I was ten).

    I had aggression problems. I was over-emotional and distrustful. Sugar didn't let me be that way. He would act the way I did and punish me with bites if I tried to be harsh. He changed me completely.

    I also became a much better rider. As Sugar only stands at 13.2hh people started to say I needed a better horse. We proved them wrong. My 134cm pony gradually learned how to jump, at the same time teaching me. Last autumn Sugar competed for the first time in Show-jumping. My trainer who didn't think Sugar was capable of jumping 10cm was astonished! And then Sugar astonished a larger crowd. My whole stable was shocked when they found out my 134cm pony jumped 120cm (4 feet!)!!!

    My little pony/rural horse cross jumps higher than most of the horses in our stable and is competing again on the 20th of July! Wish us luck!
