Discovering the New Forest Pony

0
I initially didn’t have a particular breed in mind.  I just wanted something young to bring along myself, with gaits for dressage, and large enough to fit my 5’3 frame.  I posted some inquiries on Facebook and received a message from Lesley Feakins at Trevelyan Farm, a New Forest Pony breeder, who had a 4-year-old for sale.  Wishbone was a 14 hand bay gelding, who was cute as a button and had a great hind leg.  I decided to take a leap of faith and bought him sight unseen.

I met Maestoso at a riding clinic 12 years ago. I asked the owner if I could simply just sit on him. To me, that was the equivalent of shaking hands with a rock star! She said, “Why don't you ride him in a session?” I was so overcome with excitement that I was quickly reduced to a child that was barely able to ride! He was magnificent! I could only own a horse like that in my dreams.

Going On a Spree

Those of us who have been bitten by the horse bug know that our partnerships with these wonderful creatures are as essential as breathing. All of them have their own special qualities and lessons to teach us, and having any opportunity to ride is a tremendous privilege. That said, once in a very long while, if you are extremely lucky, you get a partnership with a horse that will change the trajectory of your life.  Spree is one of those magic horses.
