So we’ve added another horse to the ever growing collection, my husband spotted this guy & took a fancy to him and bought him for himself to hack out on & for me to compete. He’s 17.1hh so slightly bigger than what I’m used to so not sure how we’ll get on, but we’ll give it a go and see what happens. He’s an Irish Sports Horse with pretty good breeding (Clover Hill on his sire’s side & Cruising on the Dam’s side) and he’s 7 this year, but has nothing done so very green but a total gentle giant if slightly clumsy, but has heaps of jumping ability so hopefully we’ll gel when I start riding him. I’m hoping to do an Intro Dressage test with him next weekend, everything going to plan so we’ll see how that goes.

      Thanks, he’s a lovely horse I just think he may be a bit big for my style of riding…..I’m used to nippy 15.2hh types, he’s the complete opposite, but we’ll see how it goes.
