Susan’s Tribute to Jyndy

Sorry, things have been a little quiet around here for the past couple of weeks, a fair bit has been going on in the CannibalRabbit Household.  Two weeks ago, we lost a member of the family – Jyndy, Susan’s Horse.  The following is Susan’s tribute to her.

It is with great sadness that I inform everyone that Jyndy was laid to rest on the 30th September.  Jyndy came into my life seven years ago, purchased from a former Yarck member, Lyn Hamilton.  This means that Jyndy has been a member of Yarck ARC longer than I have!

Jyndy was a good horse under saddle and tried hard at everything.  Jyndy was known amongst family and friends for her reputation as being a squealer, biter and kicker.  The farrier got the fright of his life when she squealed at him while he was clenching her up.  I felt her teeth at the Gymkhana a few years ago.  I ended-up with an imprint of the full set of teeth on my arm for weeks.  My brother, Graham, wore a kick one day when we were out riding, all because his horse got to close.  Graham ended up spending 6 weeks on crutches as a result of this outburst. Not happy Jyndy!!!

Jyndy won the Level 5 Dressage Series back in 2003, and also one of the unofficial dressage days at Ruffy. I also managed to point up from Level 5 to Level 4 on Jyndy.

Thanks for being such a great horse and being there for me.  I went 2 and half years between rides and you were a perfect angel when I finally rode you again.

No matter what her shortcomings were, Jyndy was a much loved member of the family and will be sorely missed.  Jyndy, enjoy your days up the paddock with your mates, especially Razz, I know the two of you will be happy together, doing the best dressage tests ever!!!

We buried Jyndy alongside Razz just on dusk up on the hill, with a fine view of the plateau and front paddocks.  Bye bye Ghostie Horse!
