Move over Chalupa Batman (don’t actually though — we love you forever!), there’s a new kid and pony show in town and they’ve got one extra in tow. Today we’d like to introduce you to the terrific trio of Abigail Kitner, Gallant the mini, and Dude the cat.

Abigail is a young equestrian who just turned six years old and her trusty steed is 28-year-old Gallant the Miniature horse. This adventurous youngster is having a heck of a childhood growing up in New Jersey thanks to her mom Becky Yank, who helped her daughter start climbing into the saddle at the tender age of one and a half. Abigail is enrolled in the local 4-H chapter and is already taking the local show circuit by storm in multiple disciplines.

A couple months ago, Abigail and Becky discovered that their cat, Dude, was a budding equestrian as well.

“He gets on him self whenever they are standing still,” said Becky. “Abigail is eager to see if he likes jumping, but I told her she needs to wait until the snow melts!”
