Magnus, the magnificent!

Now meet Magnus, the magnificent! A pure Lusitano stallion from Portugal. Still hard to believe that I now have a Lusitano as part of the herd! OMG! Big dream come true here! Nahar and now Magnus! Pretty amazing.

He is one big hunk of a guy, with a very big, good & kind heart. Turning 4 in September 2015, because of his size, you forget that he is still young. He is a very solid Virgo, likes things in order and routine. You can see it, even in the photos.

He’s just been with us since middle of August, we are all just getting to know each other. But I am already in love with him. He must be the quietist stallion I have ever had the pleasure of meeting, and that says a lot because Nahar is very calm and gentle too.

His has a foundation in ground training and been in the saddle for 2 months. So its all new and he isn’t sure where his feet are yet, or his balance, but this will all come together with time and practice.

I’ve started the Waterhole Rituals from my favourite trainer Carolyn Resnick. I’ve discovered he likes to play and interact , has a little mischevious glint in his eye, that I hadn’t noticed before! I think we have lots of fun in store for us! :)

He's also shown us that he has great talent as a Yogi horse. He is happy to stand quietly at Liberty, while you have his beautiful comfy spacious back as a perfect mat for all the poses. Meditation comes naturally to this big guy and he enjoys just being with the group in the moment.
