as a Button (aka Buttons) is a Thoroughbred bay mare owned by
Tranquility Manor Farms. Buttons is an amazing riding horse who does it
all. Here she is with her most adored rider, Maya. Maya has ridden
and leased Buttons for many years and they share an incredible bond with
each other. Just a few things they love to do are horse shows,
eventing, trail rides with friends, riding lessons and hunter paces
together. This picture shows Maya and Button's last full season of horse
Many events happened to them during this year. One of which took place
in the begining of the show season when Maya and Buttons both fell down
over a fence. Maya broke her collarbone and Buttons hurt her left
foreleg. Buttons soon healed but it would be at least two and 1/2 months
before Maya could even think about riding again. Maya spent most of the
show season visiting and pampering Buttons and whatching her friends go
to all the shows. Finally when the end of the show season rolled around
Maya and Buttons were ready to come back, making it to Medal Finals, the
final show of the season. Maya and Buttons went out with a bang as she
and Buttons proved that they were the best team, winning the Medal
Finals division Child on a Horse.
Sadly this show year Maya found out that her family was moving to
Chattanooga, Tennessee, forcing her to leave her beloved Buttons behind.
Her friends constantly mail her letters and pictures of Buttons to keep
her updated on how Buttons is doing, and what's going on back in Maryland.
