I'm looking for a golden stable for my mare. She's not a beginners horse because of her sensitivity and young age. When she feels too much pressure she can become nervous and distrusting, if you can’t read her signals she will let you know in a direct way. So best she goes to someone who already has experience with horses with instructions
She's a very honest and pure horse and she needs a human who is very calm in energy, has soft hands and the will to listen to her needs and respect her boundaries. So no rushing. You'll have to friendly invite her instead of putting pressure and put your will on her. She's very very curious and brave as well.
So on trail walks she's (almost) bom proof. She likes trails, trail parcourses, desensitizing, any challenges that invite her to think.
She’s the one of the herd who runs to the object which is exciting instead of running away from it like the rest does.
I'd like to see her on a small and calm paddock paradise kind of stable with a shelter or walk-in stable. And for the colder weathers a blanket.
Where she can walk a lot and have unlimited access to hay but also have the challenge of living on a track. For her souplesse and mindset it's better for her to not just have the possibility to go on the land, where is no challenge for her. Brain Games would be an excellent way for her to keep her smart brain busy.
So the right mix of a few hours land, tracks, unlimited hay and a shelter is the best for her physical and mental well being.
She's barefoot and I like to keep her that way. We also ride without a bit and with a rope halter, or cavesson. A sidepull will be fine as well, she is also currently learning how to neck rein.
She comes from Italy where she was broken at 2 and that's where I think her distrust and anxiety around working starts. So when she came to my place, the only thing we did was staying with her in the field, starting to get her trust back, connecting, give her Detox time, work in freedom, do groundwork and trail walks. We did not ride since then but started training her again since January 2022 and again since May 2023, at Zoë. She now learns how to release her tension herself on a calm way instead of exploding and the willingness to work with us, comes back one step at the time.
But for now she still needs time to process information and in between she needs time to relax before stress is building up for her. She is still a young horse, so Zoë is dedicated to bringing her up right and slow before she leaves for a new home.
When you have gained her trust and respect, you'll have a partner for life! And she will say hi to you with all her sweet neighs every time she’ll see you and very often when you work with her, because she's very vocal She is a very kind, smart, unique horse that is worth her weight in gold and has lots to offer to the right person.
