Our patient of the month is Twister, owned by Riley Greene of Weatherford, Texas. Twister is a 13 year old Quarter Horse Gelding and has been with Riley since he was a yearling. The 2 have a long history together with many accomplishments. He was the 2008 THSRA Region 3 Barrel Racing Champion, the 2009 NTHSRA Barrel Racing Champion, and in 2011 placed 5th in pole bending at the AQHA World Show. With routine joint maintenance, he has been able to continue being used for heading, heeling, breakaway roping, barrel racing, and pole bending. Riley reports that Twister is very intelligent and learns quickly. She says he has been a once in a lifetime horse and taken her futher than she ever thought possible. Our continued best wishes and happy trails to Riley and Twister.
