Arrow

Generously sponsored by John and Dinah Hodgson

My name is Arrow, hence the arrow marking on my face. I was accepted in February 2014 to the lesson program. This is such a big change from what I was used to doing. For nine years I was at a public trail riding facility in Southern Ohio. I have a lot of miles on these legs and I have carried many people – kids and adults.  It was fun, but as I am getting older, I needed something a little different.  I have found it!
 
I am a 15-hand chestnut guy that was born in 1995. I am the perfect size for kids or small adults.  I stand patiently and am easy to lead. I also have a nice forward trot; so be ready!  I enjoy working and having all the attention.  I really am very happy here.  Not to brag, but I am quite popular because I am such a well-mannered, easygoing and versatile guy.

You may also notice that I am missing my left eye. Don’t worry I get around perfectly fine. I had glaucoma and we tried to treat it with drops for months, but it deteriorated and had to be removed because it was pretty painful. But once it was taken out, I had no pain, yay! I must say, I have adapted pretty well. And I love working as a therapy horse. The barn staff says they don’t have favorites, but I am pretty sure I am their fav. They even have a nickname for me, “Row.”
