Gortfadda By Design

BREED: Irish Draught
DOB: 2015
HEIGHT: 16.2hh

“Ted” is a super kind, quiet, and willing horse who would make a great addition to anyone’s barn! He has an easy-going mindset, comfortable gaits, and a lovely jump. Ted is straightforward under saddle and hacks out alone or with company. 

He competed at the Dublin Royal Horse Show in the 4 & 5 year old Performance Hunters, and hunted two seasons first flight with the Galway Blazers. He imported to the United States at the end of July 2020 from Ireland with a full vetting including endoscopy and x-rays. Ted is easy to work around in the barn, and has no vices. He is kind, forgiving, and friendly– an adult amateur’s dream—and suited for an advanced beginner-intermediate rider on up.

Ted went cubbing with the Amwell Valley Hounds in August 2020 and made his rider feel very safe for her first time out hunting! He was surefooted and careful throughout the terrain, considerate of the hounds, and brave and focused to the fences. Despite being far back in the field (second flight/hilltopping) due to his rider, Ted handled his new position with a lot of poise for a five year old who is used to being up front in Ireland with the Galway Blazers!
