Honey is a 4yr old Standardbred mare. She'll be 5 in Dec. I've had her since August this year, and in March she was sacked from racing. So she lost all her muscles and everything, like any typical horse that was sacked and then spent their time out in a paddock.
I also want to say that here in New Zealand we had one of the roughest winters out. My paddocks didn't cope very well, and although my horses were fed hay and hard feed, they came into Spring quite light. I now have changed their diet and with the grass that's FINALLY coming through, they're gaining weight :) The other thing I want to point out is that she's due for her feet to be trimmed so they are a bit long.
Other info to take into consideration... uh, she's just been backed and started a week ago, and progressing very well! I plan to use her for low level dressage pursuits... and some showing even though she's not going to be every judge's cup of tea! She's a wee honey as he name suggests and I love her to death, so please no nasty comments, thanks!
And just one of her under saddle, cos I'm so proud of her!
Thanks for taking a look!
