Name: Zora

Gender: Mare

Breed: Percheron/Welch cross

Birth: 2012

Status: With Blue Rider since: 2018

Zora was not quite six years old when she came to us in 2018. She had been kept in a very small herd, and was very overweight, which caused stress to her legs and joints. In the time that she has been here, she has become a valuable member of the therapy program, a good herd-mate and a joy to work with. Zora is not very tall, but she is stout and strong, and has delightfully smooth, soft gaits. She can be slow and careful when called for, but joyously energetic and light on her feet when her rider wants to have fun. She is not always very confident outside of the ring, but she is learning to trust herself and her trainers.

Zora will always need extra exercise and careful feeding to maintain a healthy weight; also, stress from being ridden at a very young age has caused soundness issues that will need ongoing care.
