Celebrating Mares - Honey
Bianca Tella shares the story of her lovely little Welsh Section D mare, Honey.
“She has has a bit of an unknown past. We think she has had a foal before and she was abandoned at a livery yard after her then owner failed to pay his bills.
My friend had her for two years and I used to ride her every so often to help out. My friend then got to the point where she had to sell her as the land they were on was becoming over crowded. That’s when I took her on.
When I first got her she was a stressed out girly, pacing up and down in her field regardless of whether she had friends out with her. I tried everything I could but being a first time owner, I thought it was my inexperience and I was so close to selling her. I didn’t know if I could deal with it. Little did I know that it was actually the livery situation we were in that was causing the problems and not her.
A very close friend managed to persuade me to move her to a new yard, and to persevere with her. Two years later and we are very much a solid team! It’s been hard work trying to win her over but now I couldn’t imagine my life without this little face.
She is the most genuine, fun little mare with an absolute heart of gold. I can honestly say that at 17 years old, she has found her forever home with me.”
What advice would you give to somebody who is thinking of owning a mare/bought a new mare?
“If I could give one piece of advise to any new mare owner or prospective mare owner it would be to give her time.
Give her time to trust you and build your bond up slowly. The rewards you get from taking the time to get to know a mare is 1000% better than trying to force or pressure her into something she isn’t used to. There is nothing better than gaining the complete trust of a mare.”
