My darling horse from the UK... he's like a little jumpin' bean. So fun to ride and a real sweetie.
Where's he from?
Got him from Selina Cawkwell in South Yorkshire, UK. Went to try him for a week, made him do all sorts, loose jumping, flatwork, jumping, jumping sand patches... Chris was official videographer and got so bored he started making up songs to go with the videos (and singing them as he filmed). I'll put some soundclips on here when I figure out how!
Getting him to Malaysia
Once we decided he was the one (that was the easy part!) we had to bring him in. It was a nightmare! First, looking for flights, then looking for other horses to share a pallet with, getting through all the new requirements due to Foot-and-Mouth... After many many phonecalls to various people (vet, ministry, clearing agent, quarantine station) he finally arrived in October.
He's adjusted really well to the weather, and we've started to work and jump over here. Selina and her mum Pat came out to visit us to make sure they had gone to a good home and also to help me with them - we had a great time!
