Rodney

Rodney 2 monthsRodney was born in April 2014. He is out of Martin’s intermediate event mare Lexie and by the Jumbo sired TB/ID stallion MedNight Mahout. Lexie’s parents were both advanced event horses, and she has a half brother (same dam) that was 11th at Badminton in 2015. MedNight Mahout himself went intermediate before injury forced retirement and I am sure Jumbo needs no introduction. So it is with some disbelief that you look at the picture on the right and think of the eventing blue-blood scorching through this boy’s veins!! He is best described as a complete dufus…

 

Given that he is a great big gangly chap we are taking him very slowly. In 2018 he had some initial handling and backing work before leaving Stud UK, then went to Myles West to continue his early education. After that he came home and Martin has been progressing his flatwork, and starting some small jumping including a trip out to pop some logs before a few months off over the winter. He is a real sweetie with such a kind eye but not without his quirks when ridden!

He has started some groundwork with view to bringing him back into work February time and looking forward to educating him some more in 2019 as a five year old.
