👴 Estella!❤ Don't know what to say to this photo 😂
The difference from doing something with Don or Rune compared to Estella is huge. With the youngsters you should better not have an exact plan 😂. Maybe you think "oh today I'm going to ride" and then they are having their crazy day so you better get another idea. Haha!❤
With Estella it feels so familiar, we're just having a good time together and when we go on a trailride it's just so much fun and uncomplicated (mostly 👻💣). .
But yeah, she's with us for so many years now. She's twelfe now and we know her since she is three! That's a lot of time.
And with the years we had so many up and lows. Not only little lows, we had moments like when the vet told us she can not be ridden again - at this time she was five years old. Professional trainers told us you cannot train this horse.
We already saw her vanishing in the forest with the saddle under the belly. Falling down on a bridge and not be able to get up again. Running away in the direction of a big street.
This little horse has seven lifes and the heart of a lion.
We have learned that dark and bright phases come and go. Sometimes when you think it's all over, something new can begin. Something that is even better.
Without all this struggles, we would not be on the point we are today. I honestly don't want to know what we would do or how we would ride, if she would have always said yes.
We have moved so far away from the style how we learned riding (kick the horse backwards when he doesn't directly stopps). We continiue to develop. And I'm so incredible thankful for it.
It can be hard to see a current struggle as a chance. To be open for the progess, which leads you to a whole new world ✨
