Our Darla is certainly not a one trick pony! This mare has come a loooooooong way (note how many ‘o’s I used, and know that I went conservative on the amount) from the anxious horse who first arrived at SAFE. She has become one solid riding horse with quite a few miles under her cinch in the round pen and in the arena. Fewer out on the trails, but even there she has proven to be steady.

Darla has become a truly extraordinary horse. And if you wont take my word for it, then please watch this video of a recent day in the arena, where Kaya decided to try some mounted work with the tarp. This wasn’t anything she had previously practiced, merely Darla having confidence in her rider and a lot of solid work to get her to that point. She sure is one cool horse!
