Here is Anli’s story on her horse Miss Y (race name Ellomagic)

I bought my first own horse in Sweden in 1991, a big grey trotter. I was 13 years old. Since then i have owned alot of Standardbreds, bought and retrained to sell on. I got the horses cheap of the trotting trainers . I bought a warmblood once but sold it shortly after and found another Standardbred. I love them because of their versatility and temperament. I competed successfully in dressage , showjumping and endurance in Sweden. Here in Australia i been doing dressage and shows
About a year and a half ago I was on the hunt for a Standardbred to show . A lady in town said she had a lovely mare to sell. I never went to look at her as my friend gave me another Standardbred gelding for free. This year I was once again on the hunt so i contacted the lady in town to see of she still had the mare .. and she did. So drove over to look at her and bough her.

Missy was only broken in and hardly ridden when i bought her so were still in training. We do dressage training and a bit of jumping. Our groundwork is straightness training. I only just started show her and she won champion at her first show. We also do trail rides and lots of cuddles.Missy is cuddly and quiet!
