Cheryl has the experience, time and patience to work with a young horse and bring him along slowly. We expect great things from this pair.

Acanthium aka "Andy" was one of our 25 Special Horses back in November 2005. (Click here and here read the two stories of our 25 Special Horses.) He was an unregistered three year-old colt when we found homes for most of the horses. His breeder registered him and sent "Andy" off to be broke for racing. While he was learning to be a race horse it became apparent that racing was not a career in which he would excel. Andy was just too laid back and could not understand why he should run. He displayed a beautiful balanced trot and his trainer suggested that he might make a better show horse or dressage horse. We were asked to find him a home and we did.
