(even tough RPS is officially still at the olympics imma put this timeline a bit forward xD)
William was soon to be Co-Owner of a racingstable,
and Damon figured he should get to know riders and horses
from many other countries. The Russian HARPG announced a
horse exchange event for autumn, at Black Forest Stables
where Damon had brought home a medal with Bruck an der Mur before x)
His son was about to take a ride on a famous horse in that community,
but also a quite... temperfull one.
At RPS he was used to more or less willing horses,
he had been training RPS Seaborn Odyssey, Badass, Oscar Nominee, Czar's Rule, Ozujsko Newsky
and also YFS Platina Keyes.
He surely had experience in different horses but ...Thilo was different.
A stallion of PURE character, strong will and surely knew how to trick an unexperienced rider xD
Damon snatched the horse's owner, Rihard, for a talk about his horse's behaviour.
"short reins" he explained "or a refusal is never far away"
Damon nodded, telling his son some other advices before he watched them trotting off for some training.
