“Mercedes” the Surprise Horse

By Hadrien Dykiel

We got a phone call a few days from a friend who asked us if we would be interested in starting his 3 year-old mare under saddle. We said sure! So yesterday, we took the trailer down and got her.

Mercedes is a quarter Hanoverian, a quarter Appaloosa, and half Quarter horse. She was a little nervous about getting in the trailer, but she eventually got on. She did great during the 10 mile ride back to our farm. I think I was more stressed out than she was because my truck started over heating.

Our game plan is to start her under saddle and find her a good home once she’s had some miles under her belt. She seems like a real sweetheart, we will try our best to record her progress so you can learn more about her and see her progress during her training. Sign up for our blog to stay updated on how she’s doing, or send me an e-mail at

I’m really looking forward to getting to know Mercedes better, can’t wait to start working with her.
