Diamond turned 19 at the beginning of this year and is a Black/Brown ex-competition dressage horse with a wonderful temperament. She has two white feet and a white star on her forehead and stands an elegant 15.2hh in the field. Diamond is such a beautiful horse and she knows how to flick her mane and attract all the boys, that’s for sure – and also how to turn all the heads of the staff, volunteers and visitors as she almost shines at times as she trots past.  She has been with us nine months now and is very settled so it feels that she has been at the Sanctuary for much longer, which is such a good sign.  She is the most graceful mare and she has lost none of her skill from her days doing dressage; she simply glides across our fields and tracks and you have to stop and check that her hooves are actually touching the floor, it’s almost as if she is floating!!

Underneath that beautiful exterior is a strong will which is probably why she was a good competitor in her time.  She sometimes reminds us that she considers herself the boss and can be a little minx occasionally, to be honest.  We recently had the dentist here to do check-ups of the herd and she was certainly not up for that in the slightest!  She led the dentist and the groom a right merry dance in order to have a look at her teeth.  In the end, they caught a quick glimpse, but they are having to think of another tactic in order to do a proper examination and a repeat appointment is necessary!  Whilst that’s obviously not ideal for us, you have to admire the strength that this horse has and give a little wry smile quietly!!
