"Get rid of him, Karen, what do you expect - he's a throwaway." Words often said to Karen Murdock, long ago, when Lukas was difficult. Lukas is a seventeen year old Thoroughbred who failed at the track, was found starving in a yard and who Karen bought as a "green project horse" at the age of nine. Lukas has since become one of the top liberty performers in the country and he has attracted world-wide acclaim for his cognitive tasks.
Lukas freely performs the Spanish Walk, Passage, curtsey, bow, rear, sit, jambette and much more without any force (Karen doesn't own a whip). Also, he is able to identify letters, numbers and shapes, discriminate colors and he understands the concepts of object permanence, spatial relationships, proportion, same/different and absentness.
Above all, Lukas and Karen's bond is their greatest joy - trust, love and harmony are evident to all who see them together. We hope you enjoy your visit here.Karen Murdock's Biography
