A Dutch Warmblood with a penchant for people
Ernie is one of our latest donations who arrived in July of 2013 and came to us from Annie and Katherine Fraizer of Ocala. He is a 1999 Dutch Warmblood gelding who stands an impressive 16.3 hands and had a fabulous career as a jumper. He retired sound and healthy at the age of 10, but needed a job. He is a perfect match for our program given his gentle nature and love of people. The extensive training he’s had over the years is the best foundation for his new career as a therapy horse. His owners loved what we do and liked the way our horses were cared for, and decided this was the perfect next job for this talented horse.
Our littlest rider, Brandon (age 5) rides Ernie and he takes great care of his tiny charge. He loves all the attention and we love Ernie! We are thrilled that he found his way to us.
