Team 115 - The Fighters
My horse, Cerveza Fria, and I have been together for a year on January 17, 2014. We have overcome great lengths to be where we are today. We rode quite a few miles last year, even though he was under weight. It was what needed to be done in order for him to receive the care that he has now. He has problem stifles, not sure if there is an actual medical term for him, but he is an off the track thoroughbred who turns 5 in April and last measured, stands at 17.2 hands. He was raced too young and was not allowed to fully develop. The meniscus bone in his back knee caps there fore rotated inwards causing the thinnest part of the bone to be holding his larger bones apart. He is currently on pain medication, but it is an all natural healing process we have gone through. Recently he has finally started to act like a horse and be rambunctious in every way he can.
Our team would be called "The Fighters" for we've fought through it all together and I wouldn't give him up for the world.
