Sharifa or ShuShu for short is the second of our lovely horses 🥰
This amazing mare comes with so much attitude, also known as shuatude!! 😂
I met Shu on my second visit to the local stables and rode her as an alternative to Gazelle she was everything you need for a novice ride a bit slow for my liking but was a real pleasure thats why it was a no brainer to let my children ride her when they wanted to start coming along as she was great for their confidence and never, even until today has put a foot wrong.
She is a typical mare though and has the best mare stare I think I’ve ever seen!!!
But life hadn’t been rosey for this beautiful girl either, because she was so good she was used day in day out for hours taking guest out on tours, she was used so much she had serious saddle sores and there was a dullness in her eye that would break your heart
So when we brought Gazelle we decided to take her too after all we needed a second horse 🙄
When we first moved her we had no idea the issues she really had. Now I have had horses since I was three in the UK and worked and run yards as my career but the issues that we have faced here it’s been like learning horse management all over again!!
