So my little girl finally got moved over to my stable the other day. What an adventure that was! Her trailer loading still needs a ton of work...we worked on it for hours and hours for days and by the end I was really worn. We ended up calling in help, and I was very pleased with everything at the end of the day, but it was very dramatic. She and I both managed to get ourselves hurt, so I'm spending this first bit of time trying to recover and also helping her recover.
She's doing a fabulous job, though. She is a very sensible, clever mare.

I'm pretty sure after the mess we got into and also due to her previous existing reputation, people at the stable are kind of wary of her...but that just gives me that much more reason to be proud of her when we show them how great she really is. I know I can't wait to get back in the saddle! I've been eying the arena this whole time...I really missed having it to ride in, especially while she still needs so much work.

I'm even going to be getting her papers! I had begun to think I'd never see them, but her previous previous owners have actually brought it up themselves this time. That will certainly be exciting!
Though she is now in my possession, there are still a few things being worked out...but it's nothing to worry about. I'm happy, she's happy, and we're all good.

Wish us luck in our recoveries! Here she is yesterday, settling in the best way she knows how.



What a beautiful girl! She will respond to your love, kindness and attention. If she has issues they are likely caused by prev owner and how they handled her. Your post shows you to be a patient person and I'm sure you will do great with her. I've seen serious panel jumping horses become calm confident rides with time and gentle training. It is funny how working a horse thru issues wears you out as well as the horse.

Thank you guys for the kind words! I will pass the compliments onto my girl, I'm sure they will go right to her head, lol. She is quite the princess.
Maybe they will fill in her funny skinny nose. I kid, I kid. I've mostly had and pursued stock horses, so she is very different for me. I have had a love/hate relationship with Arabians for many years and said I probably would never have an Arab, even as I admired them for their beauty, intelligence, and fire.

Merry is half Arab and I think she's the most gorgeous and fantastic horse on earth, but I still like to joke about her Arab nose and occasional extremely illogical decisions.

She is truly a sweet, gentle horse. She definitely does not prefer to be spooking or misbehaving or flinging people through the air, but she's learned to do what she has had to do. She has learned through several experiences that it is difficult to know when you should trust people. She has made a lot of progress as I've worked with her the last several months, and is still in the process of mellowing out and trusting. She's already proven herself to be a far better mount than I had even anticipated her being, which is saying a lot because I anticipated a lot. She has a lot of heart, and she's been discounted for it because it was only being utilized towards herself, but she will gladly and happily channel it into her human partner when they have earned it. She gives me her absolute all, and then some. I couldn't think of a better horse for me in a million years.

Thank you! I love it on her too I thought it was just perfect for her
I'm really loving zebra print for her, it suits her well. Normally I tend to go for the more traditional colours and styles, but for her this is perfect.
