The Horses who have made this dream possible

YOB: 2005

Goals: Brian has spent most of his time jumping, but shows all the qualities of a nice dressage horse. We will be taking things slowly but already since arriving he has made good progress. He is lovely to have around, following me around like a big dog, and has taken to being a para horse with aplomb.
