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.

Mr. B continues to improve - his liberty work is getting more steady and he shows much willingness and happy cooperation. His under saddle is coming along - he sure is alot better to the left! I am helping him learn to bend and turn - at the halt, I'll hold (not pull!) gently til I feel the slightest give and let the rein go looser so he gets an immediate reward, often stroke his neck and tell him what a good boy he is (when he is soft). I am encouraging him to stretch his neck forward and down, and then this allows his walk to open up and his back to start to swing and his hind legs to come more under his belly. The trot is started - as his balance and understanding improve, so will his gaits. Thank you for your interest in Mr. B - I hope you're enjoying him as much as I am! Karen
