Maraya Remembered prints available from the artistMaraya Remembered by D. L. Keur

Maraya — massive at 1500 pounds and 17hh — a black, “fire-breathing dragon” of a horse, but loving, kind, and gentle whenever a challenge wasn’t in sight, or you and she weren’t “moving.”  A jump?  Those ears would snap stiffly forward, the ground would shake with the thunder of her hooves, powering you over six foot plus, no problem.  Yet, this fifth level dressage horse could and would, with the brush of a heel, the set of leg, a shift of weight, stiffening of back, and tuck of a finger, perform the most elegant, proud full passes, half-passes, reinbacks at the trot, the piaffe, the passage, and, just once, a perfect ten second levade. 

There never will be another Maraya. 

Here, her spirit looks out upon the world from my memories like she used to from her stable door. I can still hear her whicker.

Forever remembered, Maraya.
