NEWS - Video of NWHA Exhibitor at the WEG

Now for some positive news!

Here is a short four-minute video showcasing Cocoa's Redzone, the only TWH from Kentucky that's been approved to be part of the breed exhibit at the upcoming World Equestrian Games. Click the link below, then on the left of the screen you'll see the Video Center. Look for the video titled "Cocoa's Redzone".

Cocoa is a gorgeous animal who exhibits the true TWH flat walk on a loose rein. Note that the owner says it took three years to train him for this. It means that they've worked hard on teaching this horse to carry himself naturally and have probably worked him up to the bit that he's wearing without being harsh on his mouth. You can't "nail on" this kind of natural movement.

Congratulations to Cocoa and J and T Stables!
