2006 Standardbred mare
Penny arrived in September 2017 through collaboration with the MSPCA at Nevins Farm in Massachusetts. She is a pretty dark bay mare who stands about 15 hh. Little is known of her story except the fact that she had spent the last few years with just a pig for companionship. It is clear that she had limited handling before coming to Nevins Farm in March, and she has not been started under saddle.
We will take it back to the beginning with Penny, starting with groundwork before building towards saddling and riding. One of our goals will be to help her learn to soften and loosen through her body, so that she can feel relaxed and confident in her work. She is a sweet and sensitive girl who aims to please, and we look forward to working over the winter to further her skills and experience. Once she has completed her training, Penny will be available for adoption through the MSPCA at Nevins Farm.
