Maya was rescued in Río Real, Marbella, where a group of horses were dying of hunger.
By the time we were informed of this, there were already several skeletons of young animals at the property.
With her impulsive character and strong leadership skills, Maya must have been the head of the herd. This was possibly why she was treated particularly badly by her owner.
She still has scars on her legs from where she was restrained.
Maya is a complicated mare and that is why Concordia looks after her. With patience and lots of love, she is teaching her that not all humans are the same.
