BREEDING: Sire Iroko (WF) Dam Sullane Kate (TB)
Bio: Coco was sourced at Ireland’s top event horse sale, Gorsebridge “Go for gold”. She had been produced for the sale but had no competition history. Coco caught Mike and Liane’s eye primarily due to her bold attitude towards cross country obstacles despite her young age and inexperience. She is a tall elegant mare with a quiet temperament in her stable, and despite her size she is very self aware. Coco can sometimes be sharp to ride and is very nervous of other horses in the collecting ring, something which Liane is hoping to conquer by building her confidence.
Goals: We hope to continue Cocos education over the winter and take her to training shows. Our aim for 2017 is to start eventing with Coco and possibly aim to enter her in some 5 year old event classes towards the end of the season.
Competitive career : – Clear round 90cm Arena eventing (first outing)
– 2nd 90cm Arena eventing Pyecombe (second outing)
