Indy is a 15.3hh, 1993 Connemara/TB mare, and a superb school horse. She is not easy but she is honest and will mirror what you do, whether you meant to or not. Dawn trained and competed her from two years old through Intermediare I. Andrew earned his USDF Silver Medal with Indy, and Anna earned both her Bronze and Silver Medals with her. Having also been competed by several students, Indy has contributed to a total of six USDF medals to date.
Indy will be 30 in 2023. She is a bit creaky, but still gives a lesson almost every day, and still does changes and pirouettes and half passes. We count every day with her as a blessing.
Don Derrick has had a tremendous competitive career.
After years of great competitive sucess through Grand Prix, including making the USEF Young Riders team for Europe, Derrick is now taking on the role of schoolmaster.
Andrew is learning to ride Derrick, and plans to try the Grand Prix on him. But Derrick is also available for partial lease to very special students ready to take this leap into the large tour. Enquire for details.
