If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably already seen this pretty face.
The pretty face belongs to Prada, a mare I’ve been riding since January.
I admit, when I started looking for another horse, I was not interested in a mare (I figured that Bunny was enough mare for me, ha). Especially after William passed away, my heart was set on finding another gelding. But my trainer suggested I give Prada a try anyway. She was already at Applewood, her sale price was within my budget, and I figured it would at least give me a horse to ride in the meantime while Misty continued to look for other horses for me to try. So I rode her once. And then I rode her again. And again. And, crazy as I thought it was, I started falling for this mare.
So now, I can finally share the good news – as of today, Prada has officially joined our family!
