Flame is a 14 -year-old ex-racehorse who competed in 34 races. He was diagnosed with Kissing Spines and a year later after spending just 3 months with us is still sound and going better than ever. Read the full article here.
And 18 months on the wild dream is a reality and who knows what's next:
"Dear Stephen, I haven't been in touch for a while for which I apologise .. hope Julie and the kids are well and you all had a lovely Christmas!! An update on Flame ... he's going really well! I've had a great year with him ... he looks well ... has been a pleasure to hack out .. his extreme bucking is a thing of the past ... and we've actually managed to get out and about ... sponsored rides, hacks out, and our first ever proper walk and trot dressage! I've attached (I think!) a video of the second part of the test ... the first part was spent reversing and napping ... unfortunately he hasn't lost his stubbornness and he was nervous and tense so didn't go as well as I hoped .. but I'm hoping that'll resolve itself once we've been out a few times. He's capable of a prelim test and is working the best he's ever done at home but being out somewhere new blows his mind a bit so no pressure on either of us until he's comfortable. My confidence with him has improved no end and I really enjoy hacking him out now (jumping logs on the way!) something that wasn't always the case before he came to you. I'm even considering taking him on holiday next year .. something I would never have considered previously! Thank you so much for all you have done for him (and me!) .. I was at the end of my tether with him and now I'm eventually enjoying riding my own horse again knowing that he is no longer in pain.. Thank you!! I wish you all a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!!"
