He is well known by Gleneagles members and students, having lived there on loan for some years. He has now come home to enjoy his retirement and is much in demand, having in the past competed with us to Advanced Medium.
He is our best school horse and has taught many people the rudiments of dressage. He is an ideal schoolmaster and lunge horse for any level of rider.
He had a long break from vaulting and came back with a bang carrying the Eagles Novice team to a win at the British Champs at Rowallan October 2010, and again at Bishop Burton in 2011.
At the tender age of 20 he was trained as a side saddle horse and with his impeccable behavior on the lunge makes an ideal schoolmaster for this elegant discipline.
Now 24 he is still soldiering on as our best school horse.
