Jenny and Dusty

It's never too late for a fresh start!

Two 25-year-old chestnut mares were from foal age the passion of a teacher, who over the years still completed the training as a riding instructor. Thus, he taught not only young people at school, but also aspiring riders in a riding club.

Unfortunately, the passionate horseman passed away a few months ago. Before his passing, he inquired daily with his daughter how Jenny and Dusty, his two horses, were doing. He was still able to learn that two girls were skillfully taking care of his darlings before he closed his eyes forever.

For time, professional and financial reasons, the daughter is not able to care for the two mares in the long term. So she now has to bear two losses: the death of her father and that she unfortunately has to look for a new forever home for the two mares.

There is a lot to learn

Historically, horses have always played a significant role for man. They were used in the military, as a means of transportation and in agriculture. Over time, the horse became a valuable partner in various forms of therapy or as a sport or leisure horse.

Dusty and Jenny lived in their small, social "horse association". Every horse has its hierarchy - in this case it is probably the case that Dusty takes a back seat and Jenny is an extremely self-confident mare. At Gut Aiderbichl in Deggendorf, efforts are currently being made to gently teach the two ladies the new order in a group of horses.

A horse trainer helps Jenny and Dusty to learn

Jenny and Dusty are fit, have settled in well and are now to be "socialized", i.e., they are about to find a home in a harmonious group of horses in Deggendorf.
The horse girls still have to learn to feel comfortable in the pasture and, they have to learn that they like geldings. With unique tact, a horse trainer works with Jenny and Dusty, helping them to find their way into a mixed horse group. The prospects for success are good, although Dusty is still rather skeptical and withdrawn about relearning.
We don't know what she's thinking about. Jenny seems to be in good communication with her. The horse trainer is doing a great job and so you have to observe, accept the horses reactions and try to interpret them with your skill and your heart.

The joint work between the horses and the humans will surely be rewarded in a few weeks when Jenny and Dusty will move freely and happily in the horse group of Gut Aiderbichl Deggendorf.

One sees well only with the heart, the essential is invisible to the eyes. (Antoine de Saint-Exupery)
