Celebrating Mares - Uptons Carousel
Hi, my name is Ella Booth.
I am 13 years old and I would like to tell you about my beloved 5 year old mare, “Bug” – posh name, Upton’s Carousel. She is the most amazing mare anyone could wish to own.
My Nan bought her for me last year. She had only been sat on twice. Nan bought her unseen off the breeders she was by Uptons Deli Circus who my mum had owned since he was a foal, he was a fantastic stallion with a heart of gold.
Bug is just like him she wants to please you on every way.
We have been competing in Tetrathlon’s this year and she has been fantastic. She loves to jump and doesn’t look at anything whatever I’ve asked of her, she says OK, if that’s what you want I’ll do it.
With her being coloured she has to have many baths and again just stands and let me scrub her.
We were asked to represent Wales and Borders Pony Club in the Championship Tetrathlon and although not placed she was a star taking everything in her stride.
Many people have admired her and asked if she is for sale. I don’t think I could part with her as she had made me a better rider and given me so much confidence.
What advice would you give to somebody who is thinking of owning a mare/bought a new mare?
Anyone owning or thinking of buying a mare should remember that a mare is an “ENTIRE” just as a stallion is. Don’t bully her. but “ask” her giver her plenty of TLC and she will reward you the best reward you could ever have.
