Album The Other Horses  |  Uploaded Mar 4, 2012
Ohhh, well, he's our big boy. If his previous owner is to be believed, this is a $100,000 show horse. -.- Ridiculous, since he's fat and slow and has the worst canter ever, but he wasn't supposed to be that way. So, Gambler was born, and his stud fee was expensive, so that's part of the hundred grand. And then he went to a super-expensive training stable and was trained (horribly, I may ad) and then an old grandpa gave Gambler to his granson to ride in shows and stuff, but Gambler didn't like shows and stuff! So he started rearing and bucking and being a jerk, and one day during a rodeo he reared straight up in the air and threw the grandpa's gandson. So the grandpa gave Gambler away (I know, hundred grand down the drain!) to a horse-dealer, and then this guy at our barn wanted a horse for whatever reason, so he went to the barn and fell in love with Gambler, and the dealer didn't want to sell him, but the guy offered alot of money (undisclosed, no idea at all) and we got a trained show horse! But it turned out he needs remedial training, so after two months he went to a parade and reared in the middle of it, so the lady riding him rode BAREBACK because his saddle broke. And now anyone who knows how to ride can sit on Gambler. So that is his story. (Sorry it's so long!!!)
Typical. The horse does something wrong and they are sent off. It makes me sick.

He might have a rearing problem because of his teeth/head. You might want to have that checked. Did you ever have his teeth floated?

I dont know if his teeth were floated, but probably. And no, he just didn't like showing. We took him for trails and at first he acted up, but now he's perfectly fine, although once his caretaker took him to a parade and he threw her, so he just doesn't like noise and all that fun stuff.
