Horses

Just like a box a pringles, once you pop you can’t stop. In my case, horses are the pringles and I just can’t seem to stop at owning one. I now have 4… meet the gang!

Solas, the “first born”

Talented, careful and brave but totally nutty. I’ve owned him since he was a baby 2 year old and we will never part. Taught me the meaning of “green and green makes black and blue” growing up. Life lessons eh?!

Giselle aka Miss G or officially Fire of Quantum

2002 Holsteiner mare by Quantum. The watch dog of the family, Giselle is a “visual” kind of horse, as in she sees everything… She’s taught me patience and understanding and in return she gives me the same. We show-jump up to a meter. Our main love is One Day Eventing.

Cara & Mila

The babies of the family. Cara (Chestnut with blaze) is by Mr. Pretender (by Condendro) and out of a Grange Bouncer (ID) mare. Mila (Chestnut with star) is full Irish draught by the great Gortfree Hero (2 times Royal Dublin Society horse show champion ID Stallion) and out of a Coolcronan Wood mare. We are very excited about these two girls and what their future careers bring.
