Horse Shopping, Part the Third – Lilian Darcy

Having let everyone in on the agonies and ecstasies of this experience, I feel the need to give another update now that we… drum roll… have bought a horse!

Introducing Christopher, aka Chris, aka Christopher Robin, aka Fluffernutter (don’t ask!)

Christopher

As you can see, he has already won his first ribbons with his new rider. In fact, they did this before she even owned him, as he was previously her coach’s horse.

He is nine years old and hasn’t had much experience, as he was slow to mature mentally, but now he’s ready and eager to learn, and always wants to do the right thing. He just loves people and has to greet my daughter with a neigh every time he sees her.

Because she’s already spent the past two years caring for him in his paddock, they know each other very well as friends. Now they just have to build their working partnership together. Those ribbons for first and second place in two different show-jumping rounds seem like a good start.

Don’t you think he looks like a sweetheart?

      He also has an official competition name, but that’s the kind of thing no one ever uses except in a formal context.

      I think Chris is a very cute name for a horse.
