07/29/2011: We are sad to report that Jason Wilson with Team Hadassah will not be competing in our Trainers Challenge. Hadassah experienced an injury to her front pastern shortly after the pick up day. Hadassah had an episode of the "Grass is greener on the other side" syndrome and got caught up in a pipe/cable round pen. She experienced a minor injury to her pastern, however, it would swell up after Jason rode her. Jason was concerned that his weight was too much for Hadassah and felt that it wasn't fair to push Hadassah through with her training and allow her pastern the proper amount of time to heal. We appreciate the time Jason put into training Hadassah & appreciate the fact that he was concerned about her well being & didn't push her beyond her physical limitations.
Hadassah has returned to Blaze's and is currently being ridden by our
daughter Kaitlyn Cross. Hadassah did very well, being ridden, but tends to get
a bit pre-occupied with looking around. I know with more time and miles under her belt, she will just ride and not be so curious about what everyone else is doing. She was very calm under saddle and I know with more time, she will make someone an excellent horse. More updates to come soon!
