"I knew it would be a lot of work to get him halter trained," Underwood added. "I liked the challenge, and I could see that he needed someone. He needed an advocate, so we went with it. My wife grew up showing Arabs and she really bonded with him too."
However, Monty was definitely a challenge, so Underwood hired a horse trainer.
Monty was very scared when Underwood and the trainer began to work with him. "Because he didn't know how to run away, his way to remove himself from pressure was to throw himself on the ground," Underwood said. They had never seen a horse do that before.
