The Golden Carrot - Horses - Navigator

Navigator is a 17 hand thoroughbred, black, approximately 18 years old.  He came to the Golden Carrot because of an injury to his left suspensory ligament, which has responded well to rest. He's a very excitable horse, and has had some difficulty adjusting to the freedom and herd lifestyle, but has become more acclimated with time. His story can be read in the January - February 2002 newsletter. Navigator plays with most of the geldings, and is adept at removing everyone’s fly masks! His ground manners are good, but with returning health comes high spirits which will soon need to be worked down. I took him on one very short trail ride during which he twitched and started at every sound. But he never ran away with me, and obeyed my signals despite his obvious desire to do otherwise.  Navigator is the special friend of Miss Stephanie Olsen, a young lady who used to take lessons on him at the Portuguese Bend Riding Club, and who donated her entire Christmas present to the Golden Carrot on his behalf.
