Due to her past, Eifel is a rather snappish, fiery mare. She was owned by a young rider at first, who had neither the experience, nor the knowledge to ride such a young horse. At the time, the young mare grew stronger, in both will and body, and quickly started taking the lead. When it became apparent that the girl wasn't able to control her, the mare was to be disposed off - by putting her down. The mare was saved from that fate by Scarlett, the woman we bought the mare from in the end. With her help, Eifel got to live up to her potential at Show Jumping, until an injury took her permanently off from the jumping scenes.
As stated before, Eifel can be quite snappish. She doesn't trust one easily due to her past, but she isn't malevolent - she's just very insecure around people. She has never injured anyone life threateningly - at most, she has just left some very nasty bruises behind after a harsh bite. As long as you stay one step ahead of her, and treat her consistently, she is able to understand you - and will treat you with respect.
The first time our farrier met Eifel, he told us straight away that she would be a special case. He has been incredibly patient and careful with her, and for now it seems like she trusts him with her hooves.
The vet on the other hand didn't think much of her acting up. He did have to backtrack quickly though, as Eifel made it clear to him that she wouldn't take his harsh handling for even a minute. For now there seems to be a rather shaky white peace going on between them.
Due to her leg injury, Eifel is mainly trained and only competed in dressage. She is a very sensitive creature, who won't react well to harder aids. If you want her to work with you, and not against you, take a deep breath and shake all the stress away from yourself. You have to be completely calm and zen to ride this mare, as she will react to every negative feeling immediately with aggressive, sudden side steps, or even some sharp, well calculated bucks. She is incredibly sensitive with her mouth, and won't accept anything beyond a soft connection to the hand. She responds well to weight based aids.
She still gets to jump from time to time, but only smaller obstacles - and usually completely free, without the added weight of the rider. These moments are the ones she cherishes the most, you can see it from her movement and her shining eyes.
At competitions, one would expect Eifel to stress, maybe even panic due to the amount of unknown people. Funnily enough, she is completely calm. She loves to see all the different horses, and often even whinnies after them. During her turn in the arena, she concentrates fully on the rider, and seems to try and give her very best.
Original personality was written by Scarlett - this isn't a translation, but as it contains some paraphrasing, I cannot take full credit for it.
