Wicked Elegance aka “Ellie” came to MK Equestrian in the summer of 2012. Her then owners, the Weavers, realized that they had a super talented mare hanging out in their field. As true horse lovers they felt this talented New Forest TB cross deserved a chance to see what she could do.
The Weavers were great and gave Ellie the time she needed to gain the understanding of the mental and physical side of being a competition horse. Ellie came with us to Aiken where she got to have her start at eventing and we realized this was the sport for her. BN was so simple for her she quickly moved to novice and in fact I had to stop myself from schooling too many preliminary xc jumps!
Fast forward to now…. Ellie’s plan all along was to see if she liked eventing and if so to get her set up with someone that she could call her very own.
Ellie’s someone is a lovely girl named Danae Snyder.
Danae is a C2 pony clubber who got her riding start by dominating the pony hunter and equitation worlds… she then got hooked into eventing and I can see that her and Ellie are already a great pair. Whether they do jumpers, Pony Club, eventing, dressage or just enjoy some lovely hacks in the woods, these two are just absolutely an adorable match.
As you can see Danae is a dog lover… no wonder I like this girl!

MK Equestrian is super excited to watch these two along their path!
