A few days before traveling to Green Cove Springs, Fla., for the Jacksonville International show, Jan. 17-21, Hidden Creek's Quervo Gold was barefoot, footloose and fancy free.
Margie Engle had given him quality down time. "He's had almost three months off, with no shoes on. We've been riding him, but he's mostly just been going for trail rides. He's been enjoying a bit of a break," Engle said.
After Quervo got new shoes he didn't miss a beat, topping the $75,000 Glen Kernan Golf And Country Club Grand Prix CSI-W at Jacksonville.
