Zeb the Rock Star
My family is fortunate to own several versatile horses, and none is more versatile than Zeb.
Zeb is a rock star.
Shetland Congress began Tuesday and in two days he has won five national championships.
He won in Youth Jumper with Spencer, age 13.
He won in Obstacle with Samantha, age 20.
He won two Leadline classes with Sienna, age 6.
He won Classic Open Roadster with me, and I’m no kid.
If you know anything about showing Shetland ponies, you know Jumper, Obstacle, Leadline and Roadster are four very different types of classes.
If you don’t know anything about Shetland ponies, trust me, when I say Jumper, Obstacle, Leadline and Roadster are four very different types of classes.
Zeb, who recently turned 19, is a very special horse because he knows when to dial it back for a 6-year-old and knows when to ratchet it up for an adult.
Shetland Congress has been around since 1947 and I guarantee no pony ever has won national titles in Jumper, Obstacle,
Leadline and Roadster over a two-day period. Heck, over any time period.
And I’ll tell you why that is.
It’s because Zeb is a rock star.
