History: Coke arrived in June 2007 as a boarder and joined the lesson program on August 28, 2007, on a full lease. His sire (father) was sent to Germany to become a Foundation Stud for the Appaloosa breeding program there, so he comes from excellent bloodlines! Previously had a career as a competitive show jumper, and competed at Spruce Meadows, Thunderbird, and Indio. Coke has come to WELCA to retire from jumping while continuing to care for new riders.

Personality: Had earned the nickname “Seeing-Eye Dog” at his previous barn, because he took such care in leading his riders around the ring. He continues to hold that trait in the WELCA program and has a very sweet personality.

Herd Hierarchy:

Riding Traits: Extremely well schooled and has a lovely rocking-horse canter. He loves to carry himself in a frame and use all his athleticism to make for a beautiful ride.

Extra Care Needs: None
