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.

Meet Wendy

With all the heartache and sadness with the loss of some of our friends recently comes a happier post. We wasn't quite sure whether to post or not as it may seem a bit insensitive. But as you can see out of sadness comes light and this light has come in the form of Wendy ( aka Connie). Connie is a stunning 8 year old 18.1hh Shire and she is totally beautiful. She has not been broken to work so we will have our work cut out with her training, but I am sure we will get there. Her true name is Wendy but we are going to nickname her Connie after my late mother as they share birthdays. And just recently, with all the upset of late I really have been thinking about my mum a lot so this seems fitting. Anyway here she is folks. Please say a big hello to Connie!

As usual Wendy is available for adoption, our adoption scheme really helps to give the horses in our care the best possible time and life, the life that they deserve. We spend over £150 a day to care for all the horses and animals in our care here.
