Backing Wendy the Shire Horse

Our newest resident horse here at the Northcote Heavy Horse Centre is Wendy, a full shire horse. She is not only stunningly beautiful but very clever! So far everything we have tried hasn't phased her at all, so we wanted to try and back her. Originally we were just going to show her the saddle and maybe fit it on her back depending on how she behaved but within minutes we could tell she wouldn't have a problem with it. So Terena decided to get on! 

Below are a few pictures of Wendy and Terena who both did a fantastic job. We're hoping Wendy will one day become a full jousting horse!

Wendy is a full shire horse and stands at an impressive 18.1 hands high. She was born in 2007.
