Celebrating Mares - Mally & Misty
Kirsten tells us how she went from no mares… to no geldings! She now owns two mares, Mally and Misty…
“5 years ago I had to retire my horse and best friend, Henry, he’d got me through some tough times and I was dreading the idea of finding anything worthy of taking over his role. I set out with strict criteria, nothing under 17hh, nothing unbroken and definitely NO MARES!
A few weeks later I gave in and went to see a horse who’s advert had cropped up wherever I looked. A 16.1hh, untouched 5 year old MARE! Something about her stuck with me and we brought her home a few days later.
I had no real experience in breaking in horses, so of course I was going to send her away, but once I started I found she would let me do anything so I ended up doing it all myself. She was started in February and by June had completed her first one day event!
Being a complete wuss but desperate to have a go at eventing, I thought it might be quite nice to have a go at some BE90s… She came 6th in her third BE90 and by her 5th event had stepped up to BE100.
We have even attempted a BE Novice, not with any major success, but that is totally down to the wimpy pilot! She is phenomenal, a total horse of a lifetime, every dream I’ve had she has fulfilled and she’s only just turned 10! Hopefully one day she will breed my next superstar.
I am totally a completely converted to mares, so much so, that when my old lad Henry passed away, I bought ANOTHER mare and this time specifically stated NO GELDINGS!”
What advice would you give to somebody who is thinking of owning a mare/bought a new mare?
“My advice would be to have patience, they are definitely not going to be bullied into anything! I think mares have to be in on the partnership much more than geldings, you won’t master them into doing something you want, but once they are inside they will give most things you ask a shot!”
