Hanna is a 24 year old Welsh Mountain Pony who was a broodmare for most her life.
I owned Hanna for 10 years. She was green broke to ride but at 12.2 hands, she’s really too small for me. Mostly, she was a lawn ornament. My friend Kay was in need of a therapy pony, so the day after Christmas 2021, l gave Hanna to Kay’s program, called SHADOW Equestrian.
