This regal stallion is one my trainers owned and trained for most of his life. He was a very gentle giant, never needing more than a sharp “no” to regain your respect. He was so sweet and cared so much about his rider, my trainer actually rode him while she was pregnant, all the way up to the day before she gave birth. He is majestic and graceful, trained up through the higher levels of Dressage. He was always very curious and has lots of character. One of my favorites, he also had this presence about him that I attempted to capture. I may have gotten part of what he’s like in real life…
Shama is his name, and he, and his people, will be greatly missed and forever a part of my life.
