“For the last 6 years , my princess Netty has been nothing short of amazing … She was the first ‘real’ horse I ever sat on, and was the first in my official string. It was love at first sight. My first jump on her in Calgary, was a moment of ‘whoa’. I knew I would love her forever and that she was perfect for me . We won our first class together and our last . Our magical moments together are too many to count! From taking me to Spruce to Meadows to indoors at the LA Longines Masters never getting a rail and a blink of a second from 1st. She was fast, fierce, but never ever made a mistake. She knew exactly where her feet were supposed to go every takeoff and every landing,” Kaley began.

“She was also a genius, keeping me safe and competitive at the same time. We had custom gold boots made for her because she truly was wonder woman. She hated flatting at home and would literally rip our arms off at the trot. So I decided she’s a horse show horse. And that’s what she was. A performer. Like me. Maybe this is why we are soul mates. I hate rehearsals. I hate studying. I like to be on stage, in the moment; and perform. We share the same heart,” she added.
In the end, Kaley wanted the special horse to know she will take care of it the rest of her life, writing, “I hope Netty knows retirement doesn’t mean her life is over. I feel this is my way of thanking her, and a brand new life. Living forever in our backyard, having babies, and getting constant pocket mints from my dad.”
“Bionetty, there will never be another like you. You will always be my Queen B!” the actress concluded.
As you know, Kaley is now married to Karl Cook, who the actress met on the show horse circuit, and who is quite the riding champion himself. Cook also wrote a message to the retiring horse and his wife, saying, “She is the biggest queen there is!! Nothing made me happier than watching you guys race around the ring!”
Happy Retirement, Netty!
