When a horse comes into our program, it sometimes takes a little while before it feels truly comfortable to reveal its true self and what it might want to do in a second career. This is true for Baku Nights, a 16h, 2014 gelding by Don Gato out of Dot’s In Style by Indian Charlie. When Baku first came to us, he was tentative and reactive but as he’s progressed through our Horse Centered Reschooling Program, his confidence has increased and his personality has emerged. This horse has all the right ingredients to succeed as a competitor. He’s agile, handy, quick, smart, and sensitive, and he likes a challenge. He could have an incredible future as a barrel racer or a team roper. Or perhaps he’ll discover a passion for jumping next. He’s a pretty mover as well, although he might not have the patience for dressage. Once again, in Baku’s case, time and the right person will tell!
