Name: Garuda

Gender: Gelding

Breed: Arabian

Birth: 2012

Status: With Blue Rider since: 2017

Garuda came to us in 2017 as a five year-old. He had been started under saddle before he came to us, but injured a front leg and required extensive rehabilitation. He is playful, energetic, and curious, always watching and “helping” with anything anyone is doing in the barn and playing with any and every horse that will play with him.

After several years of trying to decipher hind end pain issues, we finally diagnosed and treated him for a sacro-illiac injury; he is now learning that carrying a rider doesn’t have to be painful, although he isn’t very confident in lessons yet.
