Grace was supposed to be 15.2hh, so I was a bit surprised when I saw this little girl come off the trailer at 14.2hh. The hand must have been lost in translation I figure!
Couldn't say no to this fiesty wild thing (halter broke means something else in french too I suspect) but it was not long before we had formed a strong bond.
Grace was trained by Trish Hyatt over a 3 month period in 2000 and I started showing Grace at the local VIeX (Vancouver Island Exhibition) that year! We rode for miles on the local trails and attended a few clinics.
The one thing I regret not doing with Grace is finishing her driving training. She would have made an awesome driving horse.
In 2005, Grace gave birth to her first filly, Royal Reign, by Capitain. I quickly saw that this was what she truely loved...to be a mom.
Grace has had 3 more babies and is the perfect mom.
She has had her foal in April, 2011. A healthy beautiful filly - Yvette. ( year of the "Y" names )
