Shatzy is German for sweetheart, and there is no better word to describe the vibrant Chesnut mare who lives at SOTRA. Shatzy is known throughout the barn as the sweetest, calmest horse who ever lived! She was born on Mothers day what a fitting day for such a caring and calm horse. She can always be relied on to be provide a nurturing environment for her riders.
Shatzy came to SOTRA as an aging school horse who needed a job, and she found her specialty! Always patient and unassuming she can often be found sunbathing with her friend and fellow SOTRA horse Oreo. Shatzy is also affectionately known as Satchie by some of our riders and volunteers, and was most fashionably attired as a Princess at our Halloween fun day.
On her days off Shatzy enjoys going for trail rides with some of our volunteers and relaxing and enjoying her life here at SOTRA. Shatzy is worth her weight in gold and has truly earned a place in all of our hearts.
