Mustang gelding Cobra has been beating the odds ever since he met a trainer willing to take a chance. Born in the wild in 2004 and gathered with his herd, Cobra was passed over three times for adoption, making him a "three strikes" mustang who would likely live out his life in a Bureau of Land Management facility.
His future changed when he was adopted by Marsha Hartford-Sapp for the 2010 Supreme Extreme Mustang Makeover, a competition where trainers gentle and train mustangs in 100 days. After successfully competing in the Makeover, Marsha began training Cobra in dressage. In 2013 they started competing in United States Dressage Federation (USDF) shows, and within six months they scored enough points for Marsha to earn USDF's Bronze and Silver Medals!
Now a U.S. Equestrian Federation Horse of the Year and Western Dressage World Champion, Cobra has made the most of second chances!
