What Lindsey Says About Him: “I was looking to buy a flashy chestnut gelding for the Thoroughbred Makeover 2016 but then I stumbled upon Pentland and something about him just caught my eye. The next day I bought him.” “After bringing him home and doing his first session I became so excited about him. He just seems to click with me a littler easier than some of the other horses. For our 3rd session we were riding walk, trot, canter on a loose rein and by our 4th session he was really getting in sync with me for liberty.”
Lindsey saw Pentland posted on the same Facebook page for sale where she found ‘Cupid’ for the 2015 makeover. After falling in love with his picture, Lindsey bought him from the Mahoning racetrack in Ohio. She had him shipped to a nearby facility in Ohio to hold him until she can travel to pick him.
Pentland arrived to PHH in mid December and started his retraining primarily through ground work.
In the 2016 TB Makeover he finished 3rd in trail and in field hunter. Pentland is now owned by student Emily.
