Earlier this year we decided to begin our search for a talented 3 year old to join the SFE team to develop for dressage with the prospect of selling before 2017 young horse classes.
We scoured the internet and started our hunt only to be quite underwhelmed at the quality available at a realistic price, we then struck on a lovely gelding we wanted, unfortunately he miserably failed the vet costing us a lot of money and disappointment.
So, our search took us to Holland!! And what a fabulous and exhilarating experience it was. Over the two days there we were presented with nearly 20 horses, all of which matched our spec, all with super breeding, movement and temperaments! We were very excited!! The yards we visited were fantastic, all very professional, the standard at which the horses were turned out was nothing less than world class and certainly showed us brits how things should be done! If nothing else, we learnt a vast amount from the trip!
We are excited to announce the purchase of not one but two stunning 3 year olds, both very different stamps but in their own right both tremendous equines!
Ivan – 3 year old – Franziscus x Jazz
Impact – 3 year old – Don Tango x Bentley
Both horses are very lightly backed and passed rigorous 5 stage vetting’s with full x-rays.
We are very excited about these prospects, please watch this space for further details!!
