Milestone 4: "Milo"
Milo is a 2012 gelding who is presumed to be a Thoroughbred-Warmblood Cross. He stands roughly 16.1 and is full of personality. Shelby adopted Milo from the SPCA when he was a 2 year old. When Shelby took him in, Milo was essentially feral. Extremely wary of people, growth-stunted and underweight, Milo put Shelby’s patience and training to the test. Since then, he has come a long way and blossomed into an unrecognizable horse compared to the one he used to be. Shelby attributes much of her equine education to Milo’s training and discovering what has worked for him. Read all of Milo's story here.
George is a Thoroughbred that Shelby used to gallop while he was still racing, when it came time to retire, Shelby selected George as her 2019 Retired Racehorse Project horse. George is a 2015 17hh gelding with a stellar temperament and looks to boot. He is intended to show in the show jumping and dressage rings once he is ready as well as competing at the Thoroughbred Makeover Project in Fall 2019.
