For countless horse-crazy kids, the top item on the birthday wish list is a horse of their own. Once in a while, one of those lucky kids gets to live the dream.

The owners were impressed by her dedication, and decided to surprise her on her 10th birthday with Cinder Ella, a Haflinger at the farm. Cinder Ella was brought out to try on one of Mallory’s other presents–a new halter–and so she could be there when Mallory figured out what the registration papers in the giftwrapped box truly meant.
