Can you tell us a little about her history and how you came to own her? Ivy started out on the track and was later consigned to the Heritage Place sale. Mikey Callahan bought her and just a few days later we were headed to his house in Union, SC to pick her up. She started her futurity out great winning her first barrel race in February of 2018. She won multiple races back to back including the No Bull Grand Slam 1st and 2nd go in Lexington, VA out of over 400 horses. Ivy has exceeded our expectations ever since!
Tell us a little about: her personality, trainability, strengths and weaknesses, something interesting that others may not know unless they spent time with her (if anything), etc. Ivy has a great personality! She's sweet and loves attention. Ivy was extremely trainable as a 3 year old. She was put on the back burner and not ridden consistently. Every time I got back on her, she was the same horse which is hard to find in a young horse. She's always been an overachiever with the want to win.
What is one short term goal and one long term goal that you have for the two of you? My short term goal will be run her in the BBR Derby this December and possibly the Old Fort Days Derby next year since she seems to like that pen. My long term goal is to make her a solid, consistent, and long lasting open horse.
What is your favorite thing about her? My favorite thing about Ivy is her heart and grit. She's sweet, but she means business as soon as she steps foot into a holding pen. She wants to win as bad as I do and gives it her all every run.
