17.2hh black mare born 1993


Meet the very charming Carmen. She has retired after 14 years’ service in the Household Cavalry, where she was a very popular parade horse and a favourite for the mounted bandsmen and women because she was always so calm, well-mannered and kind… hence her very cute nickname of Care Bear!

Carmen is an Irish Sports Horse and during her working days took part in many state occasions such as The Royal Wedding, Golden and Diamond Jubilee and Trooping of the Colour.

Carmen can no longer do the work required due to health problems and her age.
