    Agreed - adorable, and huge congrats!

    That first song for the dressage was sooo fitting - I was smiling the whole time. Too cute!

    OMG! That was fantastic! You should be just so proud of yourself and your horse!

    Can I make a suggestion on the video? I think the aspect ratio is off because your horse appears sort of squished and short strided which I'm sure he's not! You can fix this if you go into Youtube and edit the video. Just type yt:stretch=16:9 in the tags section. Delete it if you don't like the effect.

    I can't believe how much air he gets over some of those stadium fences!

    He's an awfully cute little guy!

    Yayyyy!!!

    He's so adorable, and you are a quiet, confident, lovely rider. I LOVE to see non-traditional breeds competing in the upper levels. Wow!

    He may be "non-traditional" but his sire has produced any number of Intermediate/Advanced level eventers. What a shame he is no longer around to breed to.

    He's by *Grange Finn Sparrow. His half-brother, Sparrow's Nio (out of a TB mare) won his Intermediate division at So Pines the same weekend! Other siblings include Windswept, Galway Blazer, Meadow Sparrow, and Wil'Ya Love Me.

    Thanks for the tip, wondering if it's because of different computer screen sizes? I will investigate.

    I know, one of those instances of 'just a little too late'. We have three of his daughters that we are using in our breeding program, unfortunately none are purebreds. There are no purebred sons standing, but their is a purebred grandson standing at www.erinterra.com, and a partbred son standing at www.foxcreekfarm.com.

    The stud at fox creek farm (Jack Sparrow) is actually purebred, just not registered because the dam's papers were lost in import or something like that.

    My mom is the proud owner of two GFS grand kids, both tb crosses, one being a mare who, if she preforms well, will most likely be bred.
