Mandy came to Safe Harbor after being over-used in a kids camp environment; ridden with a terrible chain bit and shanks by children with no knowledge of how to ride or how aggressive the bit was. Mandy had a great deal of anxiety when she first arrived to rescue, but with gentle touch, retraining for slight contact, and very little pressure she has blossomed in her time in rescue. At 33 years old she still canters daily, and enjoys occasional light riding. She does love children and participates actively in equine experiential therapy at the barn. Mandy will live her whole life at the training center, and is a favorite little old lady.
