Horse Love: Kaptain America & Dani
Horse’s name: Kaptain America Age: 9 Breed: Irish Sport Horse Owner’s name: Dani Sussman
Kaptain America, aka Kaiden, was owned by a dear friend of mine, Lindsay Smith from Washington. She got him as an un-broke three year old, who was overflowing with personality, to say the least.
She broke him and campaigned him until he was 7, which is when she called me to ask if I would help her sell him due to her time constraints. I said absolutely, as I had finally met him personally at Rebecca Farms in 2013 and became smitten with him over sharing a strawberry Pop Tart. He came to me later that year and about 3 weeks into riding him, I knew he wasn’t leaving my barn. He was my type of horse, a little quirky and a whole lot of talent! To this day, after every cross-country round, he gets a strawberry Pop Tart as his reward for being foot-perfect.
Favorite Horse Tack Co product(s): Ariat Sunstopper ¼ zip long sleeve ladies top— I absolutely love these shirts! Not only do they keep you from getting terrible tan lines while keeping you cool, they look absolutely classy. It is the new twist to the classic polo shirt!
