Woody is a relatively new addition to the barn, and has quickly become a favorite among the volunteers and riders alike. He is a kind soul, and does all that is asked of him. His desire to please may remind you of a beloved family dog. He is trusted in lessons with independent riders learning to trot as well as with riders who give him mixed commands due to lack of focus and processing delays. He cooperates with the “greenest” of volunteers even though he likely knows the routine better than they do. Most horses who are new to Giant Steps take a while to acclimate and have a full lesson schedule, but Woody’s dance card was full right from the start. Woody teaches cooperation.
