Grace came to Bit of Honey Training to learn to be a riding horse, proving that even at age 20 you can still learn to be an athletic citizen!
She also picked up some extra skills like working over small jumps, then I took her to the Rocky Mountain Horse Expo last March.
Marleen adopted Grace, and they returned to the mountains for pleasure riding and lots of love. I've been privileged to keep in contact with Marleen, who takes photos of Grace regularly and keeps me up to date on their fun rides. I'm so glad Grace found her forever home with someone who loves draft crosses, who is enjoying having such a sweet mare. They ride around the ranch, play with obstacles in the arena, take lots of photos, and Marleen does her best to keep Grace (who LOVES MUD) as clean as is reasonably possible.
"Hi Kim, I wanted to let you know how well Grace is doing. She loves to get out in the pasture to play and we have been doing some obstacles in the outdoor arena. It has been so much fun. She is moving forward nicely and needs less encouragement every time I ride, which is about twice a week, and then I lunge her two times. We started small trail rides this summer. She has become quite attached to me and follows me everywhere, sometimes no need to tie her because she will stay next to me at all times. The bond we have established is amazing."
