That's interesting. I never would have pegged Point Given as a good fit for the KHP, where the horses get a lot of attention from fans. Didn't think he was a people person/pony. :?
IIRC, Calumet tries to ride their healthy stallions to keep them fit, but I read that PG wasn't interested playing that game. That he made his opinion about being ridden 'for fitness' clear by dropping his riders or even rolling on them. When a seventeen-hand, burly stallion doesn't want you on his back, you probably aren't going to be riding him. :P :lol:
Maybe he's mellowed in his middle age. Or maybe he's friendly as long as you aren't carrying a saddle? :D

He was pretty mellow and friendly at Three Chimneys....as long as they didn't ride him.

He was at Three Chimneys when that happened? Thanks for the correction, I did not 'remember correctly,' I guess. ;)

He hasn't been at Calumet more than about 5 years, I'd say?

Correct, he moved right before the start of the 2013 breeding season.

Bullet Train is headed to Ireland after his US flop. At Woodfield Farm Stud, he'll be offered as both a flat and jumps sire.

What I don't get is them saying he'll be joining in April 2018. He's already been there several weeks.....??

Maybe that's when he'll start doing the shows?
