Lux Z Boy

Lux Z Boy a 5yr old (*2013) bay Gelding by Lux Z – Cavalier Royale 165cm.

Lux Z Boy is a real looker with his white blaze and deep bay colour. He continues to impress with fabulous flowing movements and a very scopey jump. In addition he is very careful and loves to clear his fences. Furthermore he rides in a nice outline and would do a good dressage test.

Jumping career

We always attempt to school over a variety of fences both show jumps and across country hence we go to a selection of outdoors and indoors venues with different fences. By doing this, Lux Z Boy is continuously subjected to a huge selection of “looky looky” fences such as water complexes, ditches, water trays etc etc. This is proving to us again and again that he is focused on the task and does not easily get distracted. The willingness to learn and the great trust in the rider makes his potential and scope for jumping and eventing very high.

Shows

This glorious horse has started his showjumping career very well.  He has already clocked up 16 SJI points to date. This feat has been done in very few shows.  We are currently jumping at 1.10m level and are looking to move up shortly. We are in no hurry with this horse as we believe there are great things to come. Following link brings you to his Showjumping Ireland page where you can find his show jumping results.

Temperament

This horse is an absolute saint to handle! Working with him and around him is a joy and it feels safe and easy. All aspects included such as loading, washing, clipping, shoeing, grooming etc, there is nothing that presents as a problem. He is also an easy catch in the field. Lux Z Boy is an alert horse that responds well but even though he has the necessary spark to shine in the show ring he still keeps calm and makes no big deal of going to shows or new places schooling.

Future

Showjumping is a given for this talented horse. However it is our belief that because of his versatility he would be very well suited as an event horse. During XC schooling he shows his bravery and straight forwardness along with great scope. A horse that takes it all in his stride and definitely has a huge talent for the sport.

Barnaboy Tina

Barnaboy Tina *2010, 15’2 (158cm) almost black.

What a wonderful pocket rocket! Barnaboy Tina is a seriously honest horse, that would excel at eventing / showjumping,  as a hack or due to her fabulous temperament she could become a sought after riding school horse.

Temperament

Her stable manners are impeccable and she is a treat to care for (brushing, clipping, washing, shoeing and loading). When at competitions, Barnaboy Tina remains calm and concentrated even though she is alert and responsive to aids.

At home Tina is an easy catch in the field which makes life so much easier around the yard.

Jumping , movement and rideability

Tina moves well and have a scopey jet secure jump.  She is easy to follow and is a straight forward ride.  Tina is ridden out both in company and on her own, she is therefor well used to tractors, dogs, traffic and other things that might be encountered when out and about. We make a point of going to different places for schooling hence Tina is used to a selection of spooky fences both XC and show jumps.

Shows and outings

This marvellous horse is the prefect combination of a schoolmistress and potential comtetition horse. She has done pony club, combined training, hunter trials, mini eventing, showjumping and dressage. Nothing phases her, she really wants to please!

Future

We believe Barnaboy Tina would suit as a junior Eventer or for someone who wants to perfect their skills at eventing or showjumping. Because Barnaboy Tina has got such a wonderful temperament she would also be suitable for a riding school.

Marilyn´s Mist

Marilyn´s Mist

Marilyn’s Mist foaled in 2012, currently registed with no pedigree (The piebald and skewbald association).

Misty has had a real glossy year 2017 competing at 1,10m level, currently on 44 SJI points (19/11/2017), this achieved with relatively few starts. Misty has been accompanied by Conor Leahy for most of the year reaching the finals of the Millstreet 5 year old championships.

We are currently introducing a new rider Thie Jones who will continue to compete Misty as Conor is on to horses next year.

We believe that Misty is destined for future true greatness. She is very careful and takes pride in doing her best 100% of the time. Big fences is not a problem, she is very brave and her heart is well and truly in it.

Temperament. Misty is a real cool customer, a comparatively easy ride, she is also a dream to care for and to have around. There are no issues, everything is just plain straight forward.
