KO Eventing is pleased to introduce our newest team horse, "Eva" (Momentum x Electric Fable) a 6 year old 16.2hh mare (JC name Jumpin Janet), who has retired sound from a full racing career. We brought her home from the track on Thursday evening, November 14th. She was definitely a barn favorite and adored by her trainer and groom. Although she's excited and "ready to go" seems fairly well mannered and extremely sensible. I hope to use this blog to chronicle her progress and unique challenges taking a horse from the track and transitioning to life as a sport horse.
Eva travelled quietly in the trailer and after a few minutes understood that we wanted her to back out of the step down trailer. We'll definitely have to practice a bit more but she was very willing. We put her into the big stall with a small attached paddock and she was so happy to meet all of her Connemara neighbors at Rosewood Farm in Windsor, CA. She is proving to be a very sweet and friendly girl. We made sure she had a full hay net and bucket of grain, but for now she seemed more interested in taking in the view. I can't wait to see the progress she makes in the next few weeks and months!

I cannot wait to read more. I loved this mare at the track and am so glad to be able to keep track of her. She's stunning.

So happy that she has a wonderful home. Although we do miss her so much I will never put a horse in her stall. It's wonderful that we get to follow her progress.
