Spirit is a fourteen-year-old Irish Sports Horse that loves to compete in show jumping events. I have owned her from October 2013 and we have built a great relationship based on trust, she is a pleasure to own. However, Spirit also loves to take the kids on the yard for cheeky little hacks out!
In July 2015, Spirit and I made it into the International Ring at 1.15m and were 8th out of 30 competitors that had qualified for the Hurstpierpoint College National Schools & PC Jumping Championships. Alongside this, the team we were part of were placed 8th out of 21 teams.
Feed & Routine:
Spirit is fed on chaff, horse and pony nuts, competition mix and Speedi-Beet. She is a good doer and needs plenty of exercise. Spirit is ridden five times a week and in summer is out competing almost every weekend. She lives out during the day and is stabled during the night in summer and winter. On days she stays in when weather is bad she has a treat of Fibre-Beet to replace her reduced grazing.
