I thought this was a beautiful tribute for a mare at her last show…

Did you, by chance, see that black Shetland pony who worked at liberty in front of the Eiffel Tower?

Well, his trainer is Jesse Drent.

Jesse also has trained his lovely mare, Andorra, at Liberty, for the past 14 years.  She had her last show at 28 years-old, and below is his special tribute to her.

It left me in tears.  All I could think about was Gwen.  She was 28 when she passed – too young.

Even though there were over 1000 comments under the video, I felt compelled to reach out to him after watching.  Here is what I said:

“With 1232 comments, I doubt you will see this, Jesse… but I need to tell you how moved I was by this tribute and your sentiments together – and her eyes for you, those soft soft soft eyes for you. I just lost my 28 year-old mare who was born here. She was my girl and I so understand all of your emotions. Thank you for saying what I didn’t get to say about my mare. Thank you to you for this – and Thank you to all the incredible mares.”

I was so moved…

Please enjoy.  You can fast forward to near the end when he actually is getting ready to go on stage with Andorra for the last time.
