Caileigh-Anne and Moose
Moose was a Thoroughbred gelding born February 8, 2014 in Ontario. He started racing as a 3 year old in 2017 racing 7 times throughout the year earning nearly $6000 with only one top 3 finish. He continued racing another 5 times in 2018 earning just one first and a little over $10,000 in earnings that year. He wasn’t the most successful racehorse so he was retired from racing in the fall of 2018. This is when his story changed and he met his new owner Caileigh-Anne. They began training for the Thoroughbred makeover and competed together in 2019 at the Kentucky Horse Park. They competed in both Trail and Hunters. Their story didn’t end there, they continued to bond and started training for western dressage. Moose was always super chill and laid back, everyone affectionately said he was on “island time.” On Monday March 1st, 2021 he suffered a tragic skull fracture while in the paddock and was humanely laid to rest. In honour of Moose and his owner’s love for learning and passion for trying new things, the Natural Horsemanship Association in partnership with the facility Partridge Horse Hill started a memorial scholarship in his name.
