BREED: Irish Sport Horse
DOB: July 29, 2017
This young horse has it all – brains, movement, scope. Cassero Carel (“McGuire”) is a 4 yr old, 16.2hh, chestnut registered Irish Sport Horse gelding. From legendary Ringwood Stud lines, his sire is Ringwood Cassero, a son of Casall Ask, one of the most outstanding show jumpers in the last decade, and his dam is Ringwood Carel, whose lines go back to Harlequin Du Carel.
Well-started in Ireland by the same family who has produced the finest eventing Irish Sport Horses, including Ballynoe Castle RM and Ringwood Cockatoo, McGuire had already competed in 0.9m show jumping classes and schooled cross-country in Ireland prior to importing to the States. Since arriving in the States, he has been lightly shown successfully by an adult amateur.
In addition to being extremely talented, McGuire has a quiet and kind temperament that makes him a pleasure to have in your barn. He is forgiving of rider mistakes and would be very well suited for an amateur in a program. McGuire hacks out alone or in company, and is easy to work with (clips, loads, ties, etc.). He could also be a great addition to a professional’s barn as a potential upper-level partner. McGuire had a full vetting including scope and x-rays prior to being imported to the US in June.
Get him while his price is low, as he will begin recognized eventing soon and his price tag will increase.
