Cee Mister B Training Blog

Welcome to our CANTER SoCal blog. This has been an ongoing training clinic with celebrity trainer Karen Murdock doing the foundation training for our fabulous, Cee Mister B. Please visit PlayingWithLukas.com to see Karen's own celebrity horse, Lukas.

Karen will be a presenter at The Equine Affaire in Feb., and has also been invited to present at the Int'l Equestrian Festival in Kentucky, and the HITS show, among others!

Karen will continue as a training consultant for all CANTER adopters! She and Lukas continue to work hard as our spokesmen, and bring awareness to the other ex-racehorses needing homes.

Mister B is available for adoption!! We are looking at applications now, but won't make a decision for a little while.
Email CanterSocal@gmail.com for more info!!

Mister B is continuing his training at our new CANTER Barn at Rising Phoenix Equestrian Center in Bonsall, Ca., with trainer Keri Homer, and our own CANTER trainer, Athena.

Athena will continue to update this blog with Mister B's progress, so stay tuned to follow our rock star horse, Cee Mister B.

We think he has fabulous potential for a junior rider!
It will be one lucky adopter who gets Mister B!

Check out our new Zenyatta/CANTER fund raiser T Shirts that will be available starting Sunday the 29th at Hollywood Park!

We also have photos signed by Mike Smith and John Shirreffs to silent auction at the Sunday event.

Mister B Day 2

Check out the videos:


Karen lets Mister B hang out and enjoy a little sunshine before he starts his lessons.

Use this blog to ask her questions about how she gets the horse to focus on her so quickly.

Karen says the horses 'learn how to learn',  and then become happy to do everything she asks of them.
They just love their lessons with Karen.  It seems as if they are happily playing,  while absorbing new
things to build on at the next session.

She also likes to take them out and work with them 6 times a day for just short sessions.

Mister B has no issues or vices to un-train,  so he will be able to start right in with his new skill training.

Can you believe he just ran the last race of his career on Monday, Sept. 28th?    Without even needing time to relax,  he is so ready to play with Karen!  Remember,  playing is learning.

Cee Mister B's first day with CANTER SoCal

Today, September 29th, 2009,  I went to see a horse who was retiring at Santa Anita race track.
The minute I saw Cee Mister B,  I just knew it was meant to 'B' !   He was meant to be our first CANTER SoCal horse to be trained by Karen Murdock.

Karen is an amazing trainer.  She uses her quiet voice and little else, to train horses of all ages, personalities, and talents to be the best they can be, and to be your partner for life!

I cannot wait to begin this journey and share the progress along the way with our followers.

I am so grateful that Karen is generously donating her time,  and by sharing Lukas with the world, she is truly making a difference in the lives of thousands of retiring racehorses.

Here is Cee Mister B at Santa Anita:

So just like that,  I saw Mister B in the morning and he was delivered to Karen's in the afternoon by Chuck Erb,  who generously donated the haul for us.  Thank you Chuck and Stacy Erb!!

So we let him just settle in today.  And although he had just raced yesterday,  he walked into his new home very calmly.  He was interested in everything around him,  and everyone around just oohed and aahed over his beauty and flashy presence.

More to come as he starts working with Karen tomorrow!
