Description in one word Respected
Equine best friend: Freya

When Berry sustained an injury to his back leg and hoof which left him unable to be ridden, he was no longer wanted. He has recovered well from the injuries and now only a scar remains.  Berry was one of the original herd that Jenny took on when Mane Chance was founded and so has been with us from the very start.  He is a very handsome horse and catches all the eyes of the fillies!  But more importantly, Berry is a terribly gentle character, comfortably middle-aged and is seen as one of the leaders of the herd simply due to the fact that he is totally respected by the rest of the horses.  Berry is a hugely popular horse with all of us humans too – he is our peacemaker, gentle leader and a true gentleman.  He is such an ambassador of Mane Chance as he is a horse that can be introduced to any of our visitors – his huge kindness takes away any nervousness of meeting such a big animal.  We are very proud of our gentle giant.
