Jake was named after one of my idols, John Wayne and the movie Big Jake. Jake gave me the confidence I had lost back. He was an amazing horse, and patient with my many potty breaks on the trail where I used his leg to balance from lol. He was the horse you could take out after sitting periods of time and never acted like anything bothered him no matter the time he sat. I was lucky to acquire him five years ago and although my time with him was not long enough I am so grateful for it. He helped me in many was, he was my trail riding go to horse if I wanted to have a beer and relax. He was a teacher and a friend and the one horse you have in your life that will never be replaced, or ever lived up to by another horse.
A donation was made in Jake's memory and the memorial was created on February 14, 2019.
