MAXIMUS, known informally as “WINSTON,” arrived at Ryerss on August 30, 2010. He is a 16.1 hand bay Thoroughbred. Due to pinched nerves in his back he could no longer be ridden. His former owner rescued him when he was ten. Winston was shown as a Junior Hunter and Jumper and was very successful in the show ring. Since coming to Ryerss, he has formed a close bond with herd mate Butkus.
