WARRIOR INSIDE is a 16.1 hh Kentucky bred bay gelding foaled March 2, 2015. He is eligible for the 2019 RRP. His sire is Majestic Warrior and his dam is WW One by Hard Spun. Warrior is another Tim Glyshaw horse out of Kentucky who is doing great! Big and beautiful. Overall he is pretty quiet, willing and steady, especially for such a young horse. A very friendly and curious type horse that always has his nose in your pocket. He has an easy-going disposition in that he has been well-behaved. He had successful surgery to have bone chips removed from both front legs on May 27, 2018 and has completed rehab.  Currently our trainers are working with Warrior on his flat work. He wears a crib collar. He sold for $9,700 at the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky Fall 2016 Yearling Sale. Warrior had 4 starts earning $3,675 in his racing career with 1 second place finish. His last race was May 19, 2018 at Churchill Downs. He has great bloodlines. Warrior's bloodline includes A.P. Indy, Seattle Slew, Mr. Prospector, Danzig, Buckpasser, Northern Dancer and Secretariat.

MISSION & PROGRAMS

Our organization provides programs involved with equine rescue & adoption
Our organization provides community outreach and/or public education programs involving horses.

100% of our total programs and services are horse-related.

Number of facilities/locations where horses used in our programs are HOUSED AND CARED for:
     1. Willowbrooke Farm
     2. Wood Show Horses
     3. Coyote Creek Stables

Our organization does not use foster facilities

Mission:
CANTER's program is rehab, retrain, rehome Thoroughbred ex-racehorses. CANTER accepts non-competitive and injured thoroughbreds off racetracks in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. Most are young at 3 - 5 years old. CANTER transports them off racetracks into CANTER-approved rehab or training facilities for veterinary evaluation, treatment and farrier care. Rehabilitation time helps them adjust to farm life and living in a herd. Retraining begins for new careers and marketing results in adoptions by Canter-approved adopters in non-race homes.
     CANTER provides life saving surgery to remove bone chips or repair leg fractures at Michigan State University, while providing an advanced education to MSU Vet students who assist with all aspects of arthroscopic surgery.
     CANTER horses heal with several months rehab. A vet assessment determines when they can end rehab and begin retraining for new careers.

Summary of organization's goals, strategies to achieve the goals, accomplishments, and capabilities to meet the goals, including its long-term plans to sustain its programs:
Canter solves the problem of unwanted thoroughbred racehorses. They do not run fast enough or become injured. Racing owners/trainers want to remove them to be replaced by a faster horse. Canter volunteers work with owners/trainers to help them find non-race homes by taking photos, videos, descriptions and advertise the horses on Canter's website. Canter Michigan will take thoroughbreds into its program of rehab, retrain, rehome and provide rehab, xrays, veterinary care, farrier attention, retraining for a new career, marketing and adoption into Canter-approved homes.
     
     CANTER works with Michigan State University Veterinary students to help expand their education by allowing Vet students to assist with all aspects of arthroscopic surgeries on injured thoroughbreds. Because of the CANTER program at Michigan State University, the Equine Program in the College of Veterinary Medicine is one of the best in the country as it provides unique educational opportunities for veterinary students.

Community Outreach and/or Public Education:
Overview of our programs involved with providing community outreach and/or public education programs involving horses:
     Canter Michigan does not provide EAAT but participates and supports equine therapy programs through Banbury Therapeutic Riding and its annual Show where riders demonstrate on horseback their achievements in balance, commands, following instructions. Each rider is given an award by Canter volunteers.
     
     Canter holds special events involving public participation where information is shared about the abilities of thoroughbreds and success in retraining as they are equine athletes, intelligent and willing to please. The public sees thoroughbreds in training and talks with riders, trainers and adopters of Canter thoroughbreds. The public realizes the need for Thoroughbred rescues like Canter and gains new admiration for the achievements of thoroughbreds. Many will pursue adoption of a Canter thoroughbred and offer financial support to Canter to continue the program.
     
     Canter works with Michigan State University Veterinary students to help them achieve an advanced education as they assist with all aspects of surgery on injured Canter thoroughbreds - diagnosis, surgery preparation, anesthesia, arthroscopic surgery, recovery and post surgery care.
