Homeward Maryland: Welcome Mary!

November 23, 2008

Welcome, Mary!

This week marks a special milestone for my friend Christie. On Wednesday, she welcomed her official first horse into her life.

For over 13 years, Christie leased Alibar. She was great match for Alibar because she is a lovely rider and knowledgeable horsewoman. Our riding styles (and opposite schedules!) made the lease agreement ideal for everybody involved. Over the years, we became very good friends. She helped me care for Alibar through my college years and was there until the very end. I can remember being devastated when the veterinarian told me that Alibar had navicular changes, but Christie was so smart and supportive. With proper shoeing and responsible riding, we kept him going strong for many years after the diagnosis.

After Alibar passed away, it was time for Christie to follow her dream. She purchased a beautiful 7 year old black Morgan mare named Mary. I am so proud of Christie for being brave enough to bring new horse into her life. Mary is a beautiful mare and she’s a lucky girl to have such a good owner. A new chapter has begun for my friend- I hope that Mary the Morgan is as good of a first horse for Christie as Alibar was for me.

    Congratulations Christie for getting your first horse, Mary. I know it’s hard to get over an old horse but you managed it quite well. It took me around ten years, to get over the death of my beloved horse, Jack. The decision to buy a new horse, took me to the website of Woodland Horse Center, Maryland, which offers quality horses both for sale and on lease. After going through their information, I finally decided to buy a horse from them.
