Cochise has been with Sunflower since its very beginning. He is a long term lease from Robyn's dear friend Leah. Cochise can teach riders from the very youngest beginners up through jumping courses. He is a true teacher, and likes to give his students progressive challenges to improve their riding. It's not uncommon to hear instructors saying things like "Cochise says you need to learn to steer with your legs!" Quirky, emotionally sensitive, careful Cochise is at the very heart of the lesson program!
It took a lot of coaxing to get the costume on!
A friend to all.
Cochise used to have hair! This photo was taken in 2005.
Even old horses can learn new tricks: Cochise's first successful show round, at the tender age of 24!
