Zena the Warrior Princess
Beauty, Strength, and Intelligence
Zena the Warrior Princess is the perfect example of a senior horse who is both beautiful and still useful. Zena is a 15.1 hands, high Percheron/Morgan cross, but don’t let her size intimidate you. With her gentle nature and beautiful sleek black body, none but a few white hairs would give any clue to her age, but we can call them sun-bleached from those long trail rides.
Zena came to us due to her previous owners’ age and failing health, however, by no fault of her own. For these reasons her owner was intimidated by her rather large physique and always wanting to be close to you. Zena soaks up constant attention and love from her owner and just wants to return in kind.
Zena enjoys overnight camping, long trail rides, pulling kids and adults through the snow with her sleigh or fall and summer carriage rides. Anyone can appreciate Zena’s beautiful grace and talent despite her age. When you ride Zena, you don’t just get a ride, you float while trotting or cantering upon her. Younger horses can’t compare to this well-seasoned animal, both with brains and beauty.
Zena is the whole package. Because of this, D&R Acres has decided to utilize Zena in the Equine Assistance Therapy Program to help disabled individuals overcome their challenges through horse therapy. We believe a horse never ages out of purpose.
