Mango & Lea

 

Dear friends, so many of you asked me about Mango recently. Thank you so much for the interest in the well-doing of my precious one! So sweet of you all! Therefore, today I would like to brief you about her. A year ago Mango became a member of our family (see my post here)!

Mango is doing fine! Even though she is already 18 years old, she is still in an excellent condition. She is very well cared for at the manège and she seems to be very happy!

I try to ride her as much as possible. Sunday afternoon is our fixed appointment and depending on my job schedule, I try to be with her two or three times a week, to not only ride her but of course to pamper and comfort her!!

My son Anthony took these pictures of me riding Mango yesterday.

This summer Mango spent many days on the grass-land with her friend Rioja. The 2 mares became inseparable friends and they even have their boxes next to each other.

Next to Rioja’s friendship, Mango is taking advantage of yet another remarkable friendship!!

Naast de vriendshap van Rioja, profiteert Mango nog van een andere bijzondere vriendschap!!

‘The Friendship of Lea’

‘De Vriendschap van Lea’

And this part of this post I will write even in Dutch abling Lea to follow this post.

Yes, today I love to introduce you to Lea.

Ja, vandaag wil ik u voorstellen aan Lea.

Lea is a very sweet and smart 12 year-old-girl and an excellent horse rider. And she really loves horses!!

Lea is een heel lief en pienter meisje van 12 jaar en een uitstekende amazone. En ze houdt heel veel van paarden!!

I often noticed that there was a mutual understanding between Lea and Mango. That is why I asked Lea if she agreed to ride Mango in her free moments, on the days that I am not able to ride Mango.

Ik had reeds dikwijls opgemerkt dat er een klik was tussen Lea en Mango. Daarom heb ik haar gevraagd of ze met Mango wou rijden tijdens haar vrije momenten, op de dagen dat ik het te druk heb.

And yes, she agreed! Lea not only rides Mango, she also helps me to take care of Mango!  Isn’t that wonderful?!

En ja, ze was akkoord! Lea berijdt niet alleen Mango, ze helpt mij ook om voor Mango te zorgen! Is dat niet fijn?!

These 2 pictures of Lea and her own horse Speedy, I took this summer when Lea was attending her first jumping competition.

Deze 2 foto’s van Lea met haar eigen paard Speedy, nam ik deze zomer toen Lea deelnam aan haar eerste jumping competitie.

    Wat is Mango een prachtig dier! Het lijkt mij heerlijk om goed te kunnen paardrijden, ik ben er nooit aan begonnen maar onze beide dochters hebben wel een paar jaar les gehad. Wat fijn dat Lea Mango wil rijden als jij daar de tijd niet voor hebt, daar zal Lea zelf vast ook heel blij mee zijn.

    Fijn weekend Greet! Lieve groet, Ingrid

    Oh hooray!! Greet, I am always wanting news of Mango but never want to bother you because I know how busy you are. This made me smile so much! Sweet Lea and Mango obviously have a special connection and it is wonderful of you to 'share' Mango with her. 🙂 And Mango is looking as beautiful as ever. Please, please give her some scratchies behind the ears from her 'tante' in Provence…
    xo,
    Heather

    THERE SHE IS! THERE IS THE SWEET MANGO!

    Oh Greet, she is such a beauty and you know how I adore horses. I am so happy to know that she is well and that she now has so many friends, both human and equine! Your dear little girlfriend is an excellent helper, I am sure, and her own horse Speedy has the sweetest face. I have to confess that tears well up inside of me when I see a beautiful horse…I have always loved them so and tell me, are they affectionate?

    Have a lovely day lieve Greet! Anita
