Those of us who have worked with retired race horses know that its not always smooth sailing as far as the retrainig goes! Metro was retired due to his lack of disire to train as a racehorse. He had isssues with moving forward. We tried various different training methods but nothing seemed to really stick. He had a mind of his own, would lead and follow other horses no problem. Thankfully Alix McGonigle came along and enjoys a good challenge!
I am happy to post the video of Metro 8 months after he was adopted out. Incredible how peristance, hard work and patience can pay off!
Please enjoy the video posted below of Metrnome's first cross country round. He is so happy which is the reason this is a sucess story!!
