Another update on Maya the wonder pony!

maya jumping 4 summer 2016Sorry! I can’t stop with the updates! Last few shows Maya has been Champion and Reserve Champion in the Low Pony Jumpers! I just wanted to share the recent show photos! She’s just a peach and everyone she meets loves her – so much so that I was contact by a woman who makes her own custom model horses and wants to do a My Teenage Dream small run of models on her line!

After a heroic Christmas-time rescue by MHARF and friends, Dolores and her foal Esperanza (the Sled Filly) were cared for by Siete Leguas Equine.  I was fortunate to adopt Dolores at the 2013 Challenge, in which she was trained by Maria Schaal.  Without all of these people (more than I can name) and without the support and guidance of Jean Bengston, my happy days with my horse would still be just a childhood dream.

Ole is a very nice sorrel quarter horse gelding who was foaled in 2011 after his mother, Lena, came into MHARF from a humane case. Ole, who stands 15.3hh, was adopted but has sadly been returned because of a death in his adoptive family.  He is green broke to ride and has been ridden in snaffle bit only.
