Relationship of Nominator to Nominee
I met Just After Dark, aka Repeat, 4 years ago when I began instructing individuals with disabilities at Blue Sky Therapeutic Riding & Respite. Being a PATH certified instructor for riding & driving, I was impressed by Repeat’s intelligence, communication and ability.
Repeat is a strong minded but gentle horse with strong opinions. He made it clear that certain tack, riders and jobs were preferred by being willing and amiable, yet unapproved activities made him a big old grump. We started our driving program in 2018 and Repeat was my top choice as he was so much fun to ground drive. He excelled at driving and is calm, safe and a great mover under harness.
Repeat’s other favorite role is babysitter to the little riders. He loves the littles and moves delicately to support them from barrels to the obstacle course. Repeat’s whole demeanor changes when a small child enters the barn. He brightens up and shows them so much love.
I’ve never met a more versatile and intelligent horse than Repeat. He truly is a legend. -- Jennifer Mathis
