Stonelea Farm believes in true horsemanship and perseverance, which are demonstrated here. This is Kat Donnelly when she first started Kyrie a year ago vs. now, and in this round, without a bridle! Kyrie lacked confidence, but we knew she had talent. Kat patiently worked with her, took regular lessons to increase her skill set, and Kyrie is a completely different horse. There is a horse for every person‘s skill level, it’s about connecting with the right one. Riders and horses who are mismatched can end up getting hurt. It’s about knowing the difference.
