Crimson Carla (CC)
Crimson Carla or CC as we call her, is a 16 Hand Thoroughbred horse registered with The Jockey Club. She was foaled May 9, 1991. Her sire is Crimson Battle, out of Village Star by Galaxy Libra (IRE). She was trained by Finley College where she injured a hock but recovered and went on to race at River Downs and possibly Turfway. She raced twice, showed no real promise and was retired to be a broodmare. She has had 3 foals.
I acquired CC from ReRun, Inc in Virginia on January 14, 2001. At that time she hadnít been ridden in 5 years so there was a chore ahead for me. We started from the beginning as with a 2 year old and progressed to lessons in dressage. CC is an alpha mare and has bonded very closely with Spring Satin. They have been together since CCís purchase. CC has great ground manners except will kick out at any horse she doesnít like, will ground tie, and loads in a trailer beautifully. She is an easy-keeper and loves her hay.
