I first saw Raad when he was only a yearling (1yr old) a sweet little thing that was scared of his own shadow!
I spent a bit of time getting to know him as his stable was next to Gazelle and Sharifas and it was obvious that he wanted to be friends but was just to nervous to make the first move.
Over the following weeks he started to get more and more friendly until in the end he would just follow you every where! He was a pretty little thing but quite small with an over bite which actually made him look more cute 🥰
it was when we where in the process of buying our other two horses that I was made aware that Raad was ear marked for becoming a dancing horse
Now here in Egypt the training process is terrible as instead of using forms of schooling to get the horse to dance they actually tie there front legs to there back legs so instead of them being able to walk normally they end up in a kind of shuffle or high step with two hoof of the ground at the same time on the same side! It’s a horrible process to watch as it takes a beautiful horse and makes them walk like a robot! 😢
It broke my heart to think that this lovely sweet little boy would end up the same way so on an impulse (which the husband is stil cross about!🙄) I brought him along with the other two!!
Making our herd up to three!!
Raad has grown in to such a beautiful young stallion with obvious Arabian throw backs in his genes 🥰
For a stallion he is so quite and he loves a good cuddle 🥰
Last year a friend of mine flew over from the UK and together we broke him in he was so eager to learn and we where up on his back with in two weeks!
Work with him has stopped for the time being right now as i’m in need of some help with him as Sophie has to go home and I don’t bounce when I fall off as well as I used too!! 🙄
So for now he is our pet horse he is still small but he is beautiful and I know once we can get up on to his back he will make a fantastic riding horse (or just a horse as he is only 14:3hh!)
So if you have some experience breaking horses and would like to come volunteer with us get in touch we are always greatful for the help 🥰
