In this article from Horsin’ Around New Mexico’s April, 2016 edition, Top Trail Horse Program Member, Dawn Hagen, was featured when her horse, Conquistador, won Top Trail Horse for January, 2016.
Conquistador was very pleased to hear he’d won Top Trail Horse! He worked very hard to win. We were both very excited to win!
I’m still a Top Trail Member, however, my Mighty Conquistador was put down in October, 2018, at the age of 18. He’d had a pastern break that NEVER came back to riding form. Finally, our vet let us know we tried all we could.
I truly believed I’d never find another Conquistador again: and I was right! I did, however, find a beauty looking for a home exactly one month after Conquistador’s passing. You might know her as Layla! We’ve yet to make any news, but when we do, I’ll post it here first!
