School Horse Spotlight of the Week: Huey

Pictured: Huey and one of his favorite students, Grace

Huey has been apart of the Freedom Woods family for seven years. The barn originally bought Huey for Alex to show in the 3'6" jumper ring. Huey's show name is "Shoot to Thrill" named after a song from one of Alex's all time favorite bands AC/DC. In his prime, Huey showed all around the midwest including St. Louis and Trader's Point. Alex had a successful few years showing Huey, but when it was time for Alex to move up, Huey transitioned into being a school horse. 

Huey is best suited for our more intermediate and advanced riders. He is a small chestnut thoroughbred, standing at 15.3hh. He is a spirited little guy who loves to jump! His favorite job now is jumping 2'6" courses and teaching students how to work with a little more pace. Huey is a great horse for students to get a feel for a jumper type ride.

Fun Facts about Huey: 

1.) Huey loves being scratched on his forehead. He will actually move his head up and down against your hand to scratch it himself! 

2.) He loves jumping so much, sometimes he can't contain himself and wiggles his head after the jump to express himself! 

3.) Huey's best friend is Scout!
