He is a 15.2 and a half hh Irish Sport Horse gelding showing all the attributes of being a future superstar. His has talent and scope over a fence combined with an incredibly easy going and trainable temperament. He is safe and quiet to handle and ride and has 3 lovely paces with a good natural rhythm and cadence. He has been jumping with Jamie and Sue Coman and is an absolute natural. With a balanced canter he draws to a fence very nicely and has an elastic and scopey jump.

He had his first outing at the NVSJC show where he was perfectly behaved standing at the float all day and jumped around the 60cm and 75cm courses without any trouble at all. He was just as quiet at the competition as he is at home. He has also done lots of hacking out, often with less experienced riders as he is our quietest and safest horse!

He placed 7th at his first horse trials at Albury, competed Intro at Heytesbury and
at Oaklands HT.
Flight is a super special horse – it really is hard to come across a horse that has such a trainable willing attitude as well as the talent to take you to the top.

Whoever ends up with him will be very lucky!
POA as he is improving all the time. Would like to see him go to a future 4* eventing home.
He could well be the next Irish Jester!!!

7th at his first horse trials at Albury International Horse Trials

ESB Irish Flight is one very special horse. What he lacks in size, he makes up for in talent and heart. He has a massive jump, good paces and is extremely sensible and rideable. He would make a fantastic partner for a competitive junior or a small adult rider who has lots of ambition for the higher levels of eventing competition.
