I am excited to announce we have a new family member and Riva has a new best friend!
Meet Castleberrys Fflying Duchess - Fergie!
While no horse will ever replace our OTTB, Cheers, this little mare has stole our hearts in a short amount of time.
Thank you to Jen of cobjockey for introducing us to Fergie's breeder! We spent a warm sunny afternoon in late January visiting her farm and playing with Cobs. My daughter and I both tried Fergie under saddle that day and fell in love.
This moment happened before I rode - yeah, I knew she would be coming home with us!
Fergie is 7 and had 4 months of under saddle training last year. She is green but so willing to learn.
Second time cantering her - my third ride on her since bringing her home.
Riva and Fergie had zero issues adjusting to one another. This made my heart happy!
We took her on a 30 day trial - had the pre-puchase exam, farrier visit, and first lesson with JC, hauled her to an indoor to ride...picked up her papers today and made it official.
She is not gigantic...15 hh!
Welcome Miss Fergie! We could not be happier with this new mare and look forward to many dressage adventures together!
