The Family

Rackwood Maggie May (2010)

Dam: Rackwood Maydew Sire: Wellbrow Samson

Maggie is a thick set pony, very much like her father, but with the additional height from her mother and should mature at about 13.2hh - 13.3hh. She has many of the qualities of her mother including her sensible outlook and good movement. She was not handled very much as a foal, yearling or two year old so everything was very new to her in the spring of 2013 when she was taken to her first show. She has made me extremely proud during 2013 winning many awards.

While Maggie was at home during the summer of 2013, and being prepared for every show, I decided to mouth and back her. She readily accepted being ridden but because she was only 3yrs I kept this to a walk and trot. She will be able to further her ridden education at a later date. When autumn arrived, I felt she deserved a change of scene so took her to Hamsterley to run with my broodmares for the winter (2013-2014).

Maggie stayed at Hamsterley until May 2014 but when I brought her home she had lost all her feather so I decided not to show her until late summer. She went to the FPS Breed Show in August but was rather fat and lazy, followed by the FPS Southern Show in September. I was still doing a lot with Bonnie so I didn't start riding her regularly until early in November when I started schooling her for a dressage test early in December.
