John R

A sensible and sweet boy, John R. had several careers before he joined the CKRH herd in 2011. The Kentucky-bred’s first career was racehorse. In four years, he ran 26 times in Louisiana and Texas, won two races with three seconds and four thirds and earned $34,077. After he was retired from racing, John R. was donated to the Thoroughbred Retirement Center. He was initially adopted as a trail horse and dressage mount but was returned when his owner could no longer keep him. John R. made his way to CKRH when he was adopted by a former CKRH part-time staff member who thought he would be a good fit for CKRH’s new program for military service members. John R. now participates in unmounted mental health, The STABLES and Therapeutic Riding and horsemanship for military service members.
