Meet Darielle & Dante

Heyyy, I’m Darielle, I’m a 26yr old working mom! I have a 4yr old son Scott at home and a 5yr old horse in a livery yard down the road from where I live! Some people may call me crazy trying to juggle family life with a young horse but I say challenge accepted! I have been riding since I was able to walk, and to say I put my parents through heartache is an understatement! I was forever in and out of hospitals with broken bones, I broke my femur when I was 9 and they thought that was the end but no, I never gave up until I discovered boys! Shocker!! Within the last few years I got back in the saddle, I have been leasing horses the past 2 years & decided it was time I eventually bit the bullet and bought my very own. It took me two weeks of tough decisions & on October 8th 2016, I handed over a wad of cash & met my brand new partner in crime!!

Meet Dante, also known as Frenchfort Lux. He is a big friendly GIANT!! When I bought him he was 16.2hh he now stands at 17.1hh bearing in mind that I am only 5’4″!! He loves attention, if you stop rubbing him he will keep nudging you until you do! He is so full of character, he is very good at telling what he thinks, his manners are impeccable,Scott comes to visit him & stands as still as a statue letting him scream and shout as he tries to feed him his apples, I don’t no what other 5yr old horse does that! We have had our ups and down when it comes to riding, a few falls here and there but he is willing to learn and tries his best of what is asked of him.

I am very excited for the next few months ahead and to see how we progress together!
