Danyelle and her horse

01

This is my 10yr old QH Mare
Her name is Cheeka.
Our story started after I had lost my mare whom I had pretty much my whole life, she was my best friend and I was devastated when I lost her. A little while after that my grandmother surprised me with Cheeka. She was only ridden a few times before she got an injury to her leg from the winter. I never got the chance to get to know he and didn’t really want to as I was still sad about my baby and wasn’t sure if I could ever bond with her since we couldn’t really do anything. I thought about selling her multiple times even posted adds, but when it came down to it and someone wanted her, I just couldn’t do it. So I started spending time with her to try and start a bond and she caught my heart. I’ve been working with her since on her ground manners and her leg is looking very promising. Which means hopefully if this winter goes good with no issues, come spring we can start under saddle, she needs so much work and I’m okay with that because the more work we do the more of a bond we will have. Looking back I am so glad that I kept her. She is such a beautiful girl and a sweetheart, granted she has her temper and gets mad if I don’t see her for a few days. But she’s a good girl and I’m looking forward to being able to get her back in tip top shape and ready to ride!
