I have had Rana since she was 14 months old and she is the most amazing trustworthy horse I know. She is cheeky, forgiving, lovable and loves to play. She behaves impeccably when out and about, always draws attention and will try anything you ask of her. I would happily put a novice on her but would prefer someone who can ride and wants to go out and have fun!
