Hf Docs Cheetah beat out all the competition this summer to be named one of PonyApp’s six #topmodels. Learn more about this palomino stunner and how he uses PonyApp to dominate the competition.
Q: What was your proudest moment with 7?
Hope Butler: "Having our first run in nine months and winning over $1,000—I truly wasn’t ready for it and it was a huge surprise to me! I came out crying because I was so happy and just thanking God that he put 7 with me [after] everything we’ve been through!”
Q: What makes 7 such a good barrel horse?
Hope Butler: “He wants to please and to do everything you show him. He’s a fast learner! It’s good and bad, because if I make a mistake (leaning, checking too early, etc.), he’ll pick it up because he thinks that’s what I’m asking. But he also helps me and corrects my mistakes if it’s going to cause us to hit a barrel.”
Q: What's the quirkiest thing about 7?
Hope Butler: "When it rains at our barn, there’s a huge puddle, and 7 loves to roll in it. I was on him bareback playing around [one day] and he just plopped down! He didn’t want to roll with me on him, he just wanted to lay there—but he also LOVES to swim.”
Q: What's your least favorite thing about the horse world?
Hope Butler: "Definitely how the English and Western disciplines clash—I feel as if it’s a competition between them! [There is] good and bad in every discipline. We ride in different saddles, but that doesn’t change the way we all love our horses.” "
Q: "If 7 was a celebrity, who would he be?"
Hope Butler: "Definitely Zac Efron! 7 and Zac both think they are the cutest thing on this planet—they also get all the girls!”
