Breed Arabian

Age 13

Sex Mare

Color Grey

Height 14.2hh

I heard from my friend about “Days End Farm Horse Rescue” in Maryland and she mentioned they had gotten a few Arabians in so I went and checked them out. After I had a few visits it came down to my grey flea bitten Lucy. She was still kind of green under saddle so I had to work on my communication skills with her but I fell in love with her gait and personality.

Once we arrived at Adoption Day I couldn’t really believe it… I was so excited. She did great and adjusted fine. Once she had settled we started groundwork, so I was able to understand and read her better. It is so vital in my opinion to have a solid connection on ground before you go in the saddle. Lucy was and still is so very smart, willing and forgiving, I could have not asked for a better partner. We are riding the trails and enjoying every bit of it.

What #RightHorse means to me

It means to me that finding the horse that matches what you’re looking for and that can’t be rushed. Make sure you know what you are looking for and start by looking at respectable Rescues like Days End Farm Horse Rescue and adopt.

Some days we just stand together, some days I groom him, others we go for walks or head to the arena and play. I tell him he is my favorite and how much I love him. He nudges me gently with his nose or will rest his head on mine.
