my new horse! :)

This is Lily! :)
she's 3 years old, was unhandled when i got her last month, roughly 14.2hh cob x thoroughbred. we've done lots and lots of desensitizing, lunging, long reining and i've even managed to sit on her twice! :) she's proven to be very quiet and a quick learner. we've had a couple of babyish moments but nothing to write home about. she doesn't seem to be phased by much at all. she's even managed to get herself a boyfriend, Amber the section a gelding really looking forward to our future together!

she's making my life a lot easier haha! thank you :) took her for her first walk on the roads yesterday. cars aren't a problem since she used to run with a herd next to a motorway and she even had two big dogs barking at her in one of the gardens we passed, she tensed up a little bit but that was the worst of it haha. i've questioned a couple of times whether she is actually the 3 year old "wild" pony i supposedly bought

Don't let the success knock your guard down, especially in potentially dangerous situations. It's wonderful you're having this luck with her, it really is :)

Just saw the new additional pics! She's very pretty. I like that you seem to catch her lying down so much!

To ride a horse is to ride the sky.
