Sir Kaden came to us in November of 2017 with a fractured knee as a shaggy, dirty, and rough-around-the-edges horse that suffered a severe case of rain rot all over his body. It took weeks for Kaden to settle and finally figure out what a treat was or how to react to love and attention. After 5 months of stall rest, light turnout, and time to get used to being loved, Kaden was slowly brought into work with the intensity slowly increasingly. After just 6 weeks of work, Kaden went to his first horse show and dropped the jaws of everyone. This boy wanted to make us proud. His looks are stunning in the hunter ring with the perfect temperament, incredible balance for tight turns for jumper or equitation. He has even started some light cross country schooling, and all without batting an eye.
Katie gave us a description of Kaden and it couldn’t have been more accurate. He has the perfect temperament for any discipline and, like all of the horses posted by Southern Belle Thoroughbreds, was just in need of some attention. We could never imagine walking into the barn and not seeing that sweet face that Katie gave us the opportunity to give a second chance at a good life.
