Firstly, i would like to thank all of my friends and family who have supported me and got me through this year with this incredible horse. You know who you are and i appreciate it :)
Well, you've probably heard this before but as you can see in the video, when he came stumbling down the ramp, he was scrawny, tin ribbed, there was no spark in his eye & he generally just look very sorry for himself. When i first got on him i was scared to kick him in-case i broke a rib or something (that's how skinny he was). Unfortunately he was was abused and was nervous and weary of everything, he hated men, and practically every human being that went near him.
A few months down the line, he gained my trust and slowly started to become more interested in everything & he finally realised that nobody was going to hit or abuse him, he learnt to love. We started to have lessons, we were getting somewhere, he was in perfect condition and i really thought theses lessons would be the start, however he starting acting up, being really unusual and he would buck/bronc with me in the school, after trying to keep my confidence up and get over it i broke, i couldn't handle it, i hated him, he hated me, he would purposely do things whilst i was on him because he knew i was scared. Shortly after we had his back done to find out all sorts of problems (i won't go into detail as i will be here for a while). Anyway, due to me having no confidence what so ever, i never wanted to get back on him, i was so scared, i have zero confidence, as this point i didn't even want a horse, i would literally cry everyday at the yard because i hated it all so much. After all the complications, i finally realised i needed to respect that he was still only young and that i need to expect less of him, once i was comfortable enough to get back on, everything felt perfect.
After almost a month and a half off because i hated it all so much, i go back on to a perfect little angle who kept me safe everytime i rode him, he started to respect me again, i trusted him, i loved him. Words can't explain my love for him and how far he has come. I wouldn't change him for the world and i'm so glad i never gave up on him, no matter how much i told everyone i hated him.
It's true what they say, 'patience is a virtue' i waited and waited for good things to happen, and now everythings slowly fallen in to place.
I love my Alfie Moon- 1 year and still going strong.
