Poor neglected pony in Belgium gets a total makeover with a little TLC now he "does what he wants" and has a normal #ponylife
This neglected pony was in very bad shape when he was rescued — his hooves had grown so long that he could barely walk. But his rescuers helped transform him in...to a whole new pony, and today on Comeback Kids: Animal Edition, we get to see him living his BEST life at a sanctuary in Belgium.

Califa and I did it!! Region 3 Reserve Champion and qualified to go to the US Dressage Finals!!! I couldn't be prouder of my boy, he's never traveled so far or ...been to such an exciting venue but he has handled it like a total champion. Calm, trusting and cooperative, such a fine example of the temperament of the PRE breed. When they trust me they will not let me down. So thankful to so many people on my team, but Lellie Ward, Janet Bocchichio and Kearston Abner have been the best support and company at this show. I treasure you all!!! Thank you to my amazing sponsors centerlinescores.com, Steak N' Shake, Zandonà, and Southeast Sport Horse Jo McCracken!!!🎉🎉🎉🍾🍾🍾

All, we will have a post coming in a few days to explain some of the reasons for the sporadic availability and updating of the site over the last few months.
For now, suffice it to say, we apologize for the inconvenience and inconsistency. Long story short, we've been actively loading rides and shows since October, but only a small percentage of them have been persisted.
We are in the process of reloading and processing all shows from 2017 from our backups. This means you...'ll see rides disappear from profiles and then slowly re-appear. This process is likely to take all day.
Thanks in advance for your patience.
The true measure of a horse can't be found on CenterlineScores.

"The hind legs are brought far enough underneath the center of gravity by the rider’s legs, where they are gradually burdened with more of the combined weight o...f horse and rider for brief moments, which flexes their joints more. Like coiled springs, they push off with much greater elasticity afterwards than unflexed hind legs. This energetic, springy forward swinging creates a very characteristic feeling in the seat (you feel the work of the hind legs as well as the swinging of the back that it creates very clearly, yet pleasantly), which is typical for a gait with impulsion, and which signals to the experienced rider: „Now he is moving!“ He despises, on the other hand, a wishy-washy, unclear trot feeling under the saddle which is caused by dragging hind legs that hardly push off and consequently don’t make the back swing – whereas others seem to love it. De gustibus … No, this is not a matter of taste. One is correct, the other one is wrong!
Thrust may be there naturally, but impulsion must be worked out - or better: into – the horse by cultivating the thrust."
(Alfred Knopfhart, 1977)
