I hope the weather improves before you arrive!! :)
A tip if you are coming up by through Cashel you will actually pass Kildare so can pickup the National stud on your way back to Dublin.
Hunting (real bonafide hunting) and crest release in the same thread has just shot me right to the top of the amusement scale today :D thank you :)
Plenty of options :) Here are a few:
Annaharvey Farm - Beginner to 3* XC - Tullamore in Co.Offaly. Dead Centre :)
Castle Leslie - Monaghan. Fantastic old estate with loads of XC
Flower Hill -...
By all accounts he is much better suited to a blood mare.
I have seen a few chunky monkeys :) lovely but probably lacking a bit of sparkle
He has been around a very long time and hasn't really hit the mark.
Normally extremely handsome horses.
I looked at one that was jumping 1.30. Very nice horse, stunning looks, dreadful movement...
I was also going to mention Calvados :yes:
I have one. He is big (big white face like his sire) Huge Scope, Brave, Lazy and not the most careful in the world but perfect for pro/am due to the scope...
I am a big fan of Kannan.
Kannan is well known for throwing rideability and temperament and any that I have come across match the reputation (well except for one!).
Big horses (except for one!) but...
Similarly i have come across Concordes who are very careful and unforgiving. I think in the right hands they are excellent but not for amateurs at a higher level. Bear in mind this is a...
Very limited but still possible :)
A CruisingxHeraldik would be very exciting but as far as I am aware Cruising is not available anymore :(
Lucky you having a Heraldik mare - I am...
Absolutely adore Legrande also Stolensilver.
I have a Guidam mare in foal to Balou du Rouet for next year and although I love Balloon, both movement and jump I just think he is a little expensive...
KWPN stallion Peppermill would also be a good bet.
We have a lovely filly by him this year with not one bit of white (:( I like white).
She also has very very good movement and presence.
2013! still recovering from this year although may take the easy route and go with the same plan again.
Naheez x Ideal Water - in foal to Cavalier Royale
Cruising x Parkmore Night -...
I have been waiting 3 years now to get some semen from him.
Hopefully in 2013. He was off with an injury for the latter part of this season so hopefully they will collect for frozen over the winter.
I never expect anyone to say right there and then 'Can I move in'.
As mentioned already you give the information show the person around and let them on their way to think about it.
Not every yard...
Always boot up. Normally just open fronted tendon boots and hind boots.
Lunging and jumping especially.
I have seen a horse strike into its tendon and severe it with its hind hoof on landing. Not...
Having read this thread I have never been so grateful for St.Paddy!!
The biggest thing we have to deal with are worms :eek:
Massive kudos to all you COTH'ers who have to deal with snakes,...
I have Dublin River boots which I got as they were a slightly tighter fit around the calf. They are warm, comfortable and waterproof BUT the lining on the inside of the first pair ripped along the...
As Napoles mentioned Cruisings although super talented are predominantly tricky. Flexible falls into the particularly tricky category.
'Cruise On' is still very popular for eventers and also Ollie...
Desperately sorry that you lost the foal. So gutting after such a long road.
Best of luck with the fostering. Sounds promising.
Just love Endo.
If you have audio he gives the history on the colt. Saying that any normal corrections didn't work, he just fought more.
So he took another tack with him and decided to give him no...
If she does it in-hand ever, if you can manage to use the lead rope to smack her in the belly that normally brings them down like lightening and they don't tend to do it again.
If it is only under...
Lucky you!! that is pure gold dust!
Please please do share pics when they are on the ground.
He is on our short short list for our Cruising mare.
Kannan, Mighty, Kannan, Mighty......still stuck.
Absolutely adore him. Thank you for posting.
Covering our Guidam filly with him this year and wish I could fast forward 360 days.
I just think he is a 2 for one deal with such jump and superb...
TRI on the Curragh (N7) motorway is pretty good :yes:
You could drive through the Curragh and add in a visit to the Irish National Stud and the Japanese Gardens.
