Success stories Indie My Horse of a Lifetime

7th May 2021

Written by Emma Morrison

I purchased Shoreline, now known as Indie, last year with the intention that she would be my forever horse, little did I know she would be just that.

When Indie first arrived she was lean and sensitive and although she was tense to ride, Indie was so gentle and well behaved on the ground right from the start and instantly decided she liked small people.

It didn't take her long to settle and she really enjoys all the love and attention. I now feel like I could ride Indie all day and I believe she feels the same. It was honestly love at first sight even when I saw her advert she is such a fun and forward going mare which is exactly what I love.

However what makes Indie extra special is that I have two little girl’s who adore her beyond words. Indie is so gentle and calm around them and allows them do whatever they like, she couldn't be any kinder nor more trustworthy. The girls trust her more than their own ponies and my 10 year old daughter cannot wait to do pony club with Indie when she's bigger!

We do everything together, show jumping, cross country, hacking with my children, hacking alone (my favourite peaceful me time) and last weekend we all headed to the beach for the first time.

I never thought a horse could be such a special best friend and at only 7 years old, I look forward to a long happy life with her. Indie is my horse of a lifetime.
