Additional Information

Mello Groove, affectionately known as Mello, is a seven-year old chestnut gelding. With thirty-eight starts and winning over a quarter million dollars, Mello has the heart of a true athlete. Mello came to Blue Bloods recently gelded and took time off to decompress.Currently, Mello is paired with a student from Averett University enrolled in the service learning class "Retraining the Off The Track Thoroughbred". During this time, Mello will be schooled four to six days a week, working in and out of the tack. Both on the ground and under saddle, Mello lives up to his name, remaining calm, cool, and collected. Under saddle, Mello walks, trots, and canters off of both reins and has started work over poles. Additionally, to supplement his training, Mello is learning how to properly lunge. On the ground, Mello is wonderfully behaved. He can lead properly and is very well-mannered for daily care such as grooming, bathing, and more. While Mello is a sweetheart, he can be a bit timid; and he needs a calm, confident rider to positively encourage him and give him the confidence he lacks. Once he builds that relationship, Mello loves nothing more than cuddles and cookies! Mello is an absolute sweetheart, and with the right rider his great potential will shine both in and out of the show arena."Type your paragraph here.
