Looking at her passport, it seems she has had a difficult life, with 11 different homes in her 14 years, no wonder she had issues. She also had sweet itch when she arrived , with a hogged mane , but now she is 100% fine and her mane is growing back . She came to us in a bitless bridle, which is unusual to see here , but the vet says she has some nerve damage in her face and her teeth also indicated previous trauma, so we think that probably it was not possible to put a bit in her mouth. Once we had gained Sierra’s trust we then spent time helping her to be happy to be tacked up.When she first came she would dance around once a saddle was put on her back , but again with the aid of patience and a clicker she is now much happier and is a joy to ride, perfectly behaved with a lovely forward going canter.
We are really thrilled to see that she has made friends with new horse Flamenca and the pair are inseparable, it is lovely to watch their bond growing daily.
