Xena is a 10yo Welsh Mountain x Arab mare standing at about 13hh. Before she came to us a year ago, she had been a lawn-mower for several years for a family that didn't really know anything about horse care.

Her feet were a mess from the last time she foundered, her manners were atrocious and she was so severely overweight that she resembled an almond.

Now, although still on the podgy side, Xena is a beautiful child's pony ridden regularly on the lead, by my 5yo daughter Jordan.

She is barefoot trimmed, has a treeless saddle, and lives outside all year round. Eventually I would like to see her bitless as well (BTB).
