Celebrating Mares - Lu

celebrating mares- lu4Emily Chomicz shares her story about her KWPN, 9 year old mare, ‘Lu’.

“Lu is a 9yo KWPN mare. She was started late and from what we can gather did not have the best start (I got her with spur scars, a marked back from a bad saddle, and terrible teeth, to name a few issues) so has a tendency to get tense, switch off and be aggressive towards people she doesn’t trust. Despite this she sometimes shows how willing she wants to be (achieving some double clears and wins) and enjoys a cuddle with me when no one is looking. I’m looking forward to when she finally realises that the world isn’t such a bad place. Lu is a true rags to riches story, and would be great to represent how
resilient mares can be. Plus, she is gorgeous, with a slightly quirky look due to her suspected past facial trauma. Keep up with us at @teamwkkw and our tag #LoveLu”

What advice would you give to somebody who is thinking of owning a mare/bought a new mare?

“My advice would be to make a fuss of your mare. Lu is quite dominant but rather than getting into a battle of wills, I let her know when she has been good in riding or handling, and give her a good scratch on her grumpy days and do something fun like carrot stretches (a.k.a Pony Pilates!) to bring out her sweet nature.”
