I have had my Standardbred mare for 3 years this February, I rescued her from a depot in Victoria.
Her race name/registered name is Duchesshadow but we call her Zambi, She’s just turned 9, and she is half American Standardbred, she’s by Jet laag.
I mainly compete her in Dressage and Hacking which she tries her heart out in.
Zambi is a sucker for pats and scratches, she will only stand at competitions if there’s someone there patting her in between classes haha. I’ve owned horses for about 6-7 years now and ridden almost all my life, I’m 20 years old now.
I have 2 other horses but riding my standy is my favourite :) I wish to continue moving up the levels in Dressage with her and also continue competing in hacking.
