Breed: Irish Sport Horse
Dakota was purchased from a local yard where he was shared by two young ladies who decided they could no longer afford him. Keeping horses is both time consuming and expensive!
He settled in well to work in the school. Not every horse can come from private ownership and cope with all the different riders in a riding school.
Fran, our Chief Instructor at the time, made him her project. It paid off, as they won three out of four dressage classes to take the Headley Heath Riders Dressage trophy in 2019. Well done Fran and Dakota! His jumping improved to enable hime to be used in our BHS Stage 3 exams and he has become a useful all-rounder although hacking in our open country, although sensible, he needs a more experienced rider.
