Hattie and Harley — February 15, 2022

Hattie and Harley

In 2020, Hattie met Harley, a beautiful dark brown gelding pony. Since then, they have formed such a strong bond and have helped each other immensely. 

Just over a year ago, Hattie met Harley while at a friend’s house. She instantly fell in love with him and decided to adopt him. Unlike her previous horse, however, Harley was a young green, or a horse with little to no training. It has been a bit of an adjustment, but it helped Hattie grow a lot as a rider and trainer. 

Having Harley has had a huge impact on Hattie. Working with him has taught her patience, courage, and how to work as a team. She also learned how to be more confident in herself and her skills when training Harley. Since then, he has gone from a pony with hardly any training to one who loves to jump and go for rides with Hattie. 

When not riding together, Harley loves cuddles. Whenever he and Hattie are spending time together, cuddles are his favourite thing. This has also helped Hattie as, if she’s having a difficult day, spending this time with Harley instantly lifts her mood. 

Harley has been life-changing for Hattie. He has helped her in so many ways, from teaching her how to be a better handler, to just bringing happiness into each day. No matter what, they know they always have each other through thick and thin.
