After a long day of driving down to Devon, I finally got my BFG of a 3 year old home to begin his adult life!
Meet Larkshill Victorious aka Victor, owned by myself in partnership with his breeder, Heather Stack. Victor is already over 17hh and initially he took a little while to find his legs in the lorry on the way home. He then travelled like a pro and arrived at the yard a little tired but so chilled out. He didn't bat an eyelid at his new surroundings and was interested to meet his new friends in between eating!
Victor is by Vivaldi out of a De Niro mare and has such a kind nature with big floppy ears just like Rio! For his size he has good spacial awareness although where he has grown in height, he needs time to strengthen. My plan is to start the groundwork with him initially, getting him used to rugs, putting tack on and off, long reining, etc and then I will turn him back out over the Winter to do some more strengthening before backing him.
I'm so excited to start this journey with such a lovely horse, I'll keep you posted!
