16hh Grey Gelding, Foaled 25th April 2011
Sally imported Diamond from Ireland in June 2017.
This handsome Grey gelding really delivers the best of both worlds. As a registered Irish Sports horse, he has the conformation and physical ability to really operate as a competition or fun horse, but he also has the temperament to become a much loved part of the family.
Diamond is a really easy and genuine chap. He is a wonderful ride on the flat, as he is responsive but calm and is capable of working very sweetly. He is easy to keep between hand and leg, and drops into a nice soft outline. His flatwork is certainly established enough for him to go straight out and do a decent dressage test.
Although Diamond is more established in his flatwork than his jumping, he shows good potential over show jumps and has a decent pop in him. With positive, consistent riding he approaches his jumps in a calm rhythm without rushing, which allows his rider to see a stride easily.
Diamond has been a regular contender on Sally’s weekly group cross country sessions. He enjoys his cross country, and is safe yet forward. He has jumped pretty much everything on our cross country course, and is ready to go out and do more.
Diamond’s chilled out, relaxed outlook on life is truly infectious; and would make him the perfect partner for a rider that struggles with confidence on the ground or in the saddle. A joy to handle in and out of the stable, this sweet natured, affectionate gelding is very patient and tolerant of mistakes that a less experienced owner may make.
Diamond by name and by nature, he is totally dependable and the type everyone wants to take home!
Diamond is sold with a Green Irish Horse Board passport.
