ST. CHARLES, Mich. Nancy Puffer, 86, has been around horses most of her life. She's owned Thoroughbred horses for decades and one of them, Myhorseofcourse, has been a successful racer. In 2013, Myhorseofcourse (whose barn name is "Puffer") made it all the way to the Belmont Stakes, one of the three final horse races that make up the Triple Crown.
Nancy is now looking at hanging up her reins. She plans to donate her horses to an equine therapy center where children with disabilities are able to ride and care for horses. But before she does that, she has one goal: to get President Donald Trump to ride Myhorseofcourse the next time he has a rally in Michigan.
"He represents the values that I think most people would like to live by: hard work, earn what you get instead of expecting it to come from the top down," Nancy explained. "Life is sort of like a garden. You plant seeds and it depends on what you do. You might get tomatoes and you might get weeds."
According to Nancy, having Trump ride "Puffer" would be something that's not political and could bring people together.
"I think it would touch a lot of people that like horses, something not as political. But, knowing him, he would try anything if he thought it would make other people happy, something different," she explained.
The 86-year-old said Trump wouldn't be the only person in history who rode horses. Specifically, she cited President Ronald Reagan and General George Patton.
But one of the main reasons Nancy wants the president to ride "Puffer" is because of the pun behind the name.
"If he actually rides Myhorseofcourse, he'll be able to get on and say, 'Well, I'm going ride Myhorseofcourse.' And then the press will say, 'Well, that's another lie 'cause it isn't his horse.' And then he'll be able to say, 'Oh, yes. This is Myhorseofcourse."
86-Year-Old Michigan Woman Wants the President to Ride Her Horse
Bwahahaha, I love it
Havent heard that line before...
Actually he should.
Sorry Nancy, he just now said he wont even ride a bike...hes doesnt want a John Kerry moment.
She’s a gem.
I smell a set up for a Dukakis in the tank moment. DT is not a horse guy.
I think Biden should ride the horse how bout that.
Trumps needs a Dobermann.
It fits him.
.... him and the horse he rode in on.
President Trump doesn’t need any gimmicks; he’s the real deal.
No, he shouldn’t. Trump is the ultimate “city slicker”, and he shouldn’t pander to anyone by being anything other than himself. It would be lampooned on the same level as Dukakis in a tank. Country folks love Trump despite his rich big city identity, at least in part because he is genuine, and doesn’t pander.
If he’s not an experienced horseman, then no. Especially with a thoroughbred. They are tall horses, and can be a bit spirited. Taking a fall from one could break his neck.
Yeah I read he has zero experience with horses, I take that back.
Plus whenever I am pleased to see someone mount a horse they are max 125 pounds wet.
A 2008 foal did not race in the 2013 Belmont Stakes. The Belmont is limited to 3-year-olds, for those of you in Rio Linda.
So this gelding would have raced in the 2011 Belmont Stakes, except that he didn't, because he couldn't even beat maiden claimers anywhere at 3 that year until he found a humble rock-bottom maiden claimer at Fairplex during the LA County Fair in September -- 3 months after the Belmont.
For the record, the 2013 Belmont Stakes was Palace Malice upsetting Orb. No sign of Myhorseforcourse, who by then was 5, and his trainer had tried to fashion him -- futilely -- as a marathoner in minor allowance races.
In fact, the one and only time Myhorseofcourse even ran at Belmont, he finished dead-last 11th of 11 in a turf claimer.
So Nancy Puffer is puffing on something, or it's a setup, or she's just full of shit, or all three. But hey, Beth Bauman, way to do some fact-checking there at Townhall you fat-faced nimrod quelle surprise...
“But hey, Beth Bauman, way to do some fact-checking there at Townhall you fat-faced nimrod quelle surprise...”
At Townhall, which pretends it’s a conservative site. IIRC it’s part of Salem Media which was a cabal of Trump hating GOP hacks like Hewitt and Medved.
