Showing a Horse Nobody Else Wanted
 By Run Free   •   4th Aug 2012   •   2,383 views   •   7 comments
On October 16th 2010 I met my dream pony, the red and white mare with no name. She was extremely thin and unfit, but she was quieter than a lamb. I worked hard on ‘fixing’ her, feeding her, grooming her and getting her fitness up and eventually she became something extraordinary. She went from a skinny mare that couldn’t jump anything and was so unfit to On Angels Wings, the 14hh mare that clears 90cm with ease and is just beautifully behaved and extremely fit.

In the time I have owned my super mare (who was officially mine on Christmas day 2010 by the way) we have been to Pony Club, Pony club camp and passed our C test at the Killinick Harriers branch of the Irish Pony Club. We have perfected our relationship together and we were invincible. When we gallop across fields nothing could stop us and when we approach a jump there is no doubt something special is going to happen.

A lot of riders want to be partners with Rachael and Angel in the team games at Pony Camp and at competitions everyone envies my bravery when Angel misbehaves, and envies our relationship when she behaves. We are a perfect couple and nothing can get in our way.

The one main thing that took Angel from a dark, scary place to a place full of love, care and pears was simply the love of one girl who believed her mare could excel when nobody else did. So remember if you know a horse that bucks and nobody else wants to ride, remember Angel, and what that horse can become with a little love, work and belief.

A Competitive Streak Show Update

As I entered the ring I was confident, I trotted around the 'evil' jumps and cantered over towards the first fence, ironically this was the most challenging to me. It stood at 65cm but was quite wide and brightly coloured. Angel w ...

Mustang Mountain - Part 3

Sadly I heard no reply. I was so scared and hopeless, but at least I have my Midnight back. Finally, after a while Midnight slowed back to a walk and I dismounted quickly. I was fine and so was Midnight and his beautiful herd. Slo ...

We galloped for half an hour wandering over thousands of trails on Mustang Mountain. Soon Black Beauty got tired so we slowed to a walk. Where could he be I thought. I tried to clear my mind, think of where he likes to graze. Sudd ...
