I’m Darielle, one half of the bucking duo. Some people may call me crazy trying to juggle family life with a young horse but I say challenge accepted. I have been riding since I was able to walk, and to say I put my parents through heartache is an understatement. I was forever in and out of hospitals with broken bones, I broke my femur when I was 9, they thought that was the end but no, I never gave up until I discovered boys… Shocker!! When I turned 23/24 I bit the bullet and returned to the sport I knew and loved and ever since I couldn’t get myself out of the saddle! I had been leasing horses before I bough decided it was time I eventually bit the bullet and bought my very own. It took me two weeks of tough decisions & on October 8th 2016, I handed over a wad of cash & met my brand new partner in crime!!
Meet Dante, also known as Frenchfort Lux. He is a big friendly GIANT, almost like a big pet dog. When I bought him he was 16.2hh he now stands at 17.2hh bearing in mind that I am only 5’4″. He loves attention, if you stop rubbing him he will keep nudging you until you do. We have had our ups and downs when it comes to riding, a few falls here and there but he is willing to learn and tries his best of what is asked of him.
