Our horses

 

It is time to introduce the equine stars of the group! Diego is a Percheron/Thoroughbred cross, 16.1 hh and dark bay/brown with a single white star on his forehead. He is 15 years old and has been our mainstay since we ‘discovered’ him at a resort in Kelowna, BC on our way to a competition in Chilliwack in 2004. He came along and has passed all the tests of time and adventure and works with our vaulters as their walk and canter horse.

 

 

We have introduced a smaller horse to assist Diego in his duties. Bella, a Registered Haflinger mare, is 11 years old and 14.2 hh. She takes the youngerand smaller vaulters at the walk/trot levels.

 

 

Phoenix is 10 this year and is a cross breed. He is a Canadian Sport Horse, bred in Saskatchewan, and is skewbald in colour. He competed at the World Equestrian Games in 2010 and now carries our B Canter vaulters in Provincial competition. This year, 2012, he will carry his first canter pair in the Canadian National Championship being held in Ponoka, Alberta.

 

Rubin is our national and international vaulting horse. He is a 16 year old WestphalianWarmblood imported from Germany in 2007 and stands at 18.3 hh. He competed with Hannah at the CVI 2* in Kentucky 2009 and both of them qualified to compete for Canada at the WEG in October 2010. Unfortunately, while training in Tennessee for the WEG Rubin tore a suspensory ligament in his left hind leg. He has been healing well and will perhaps return to vaulting in 2013.
