More Information

I was 13 when I had gotten valiant, a grumpy grey that liked to bite, hated being tacked up and ran with his head in the air. After a lot of hard work and sorting out his back and other problems, Valiant ended up being a fantastic horse. At shows i ended up being told what a nice Warmblood i have, and when i replied with he is thoroughbred there were gasps. Valiant went from giraffe neck to kicking warmbloods off the podiums, We jumped up to 1m and went up to Novice eventing, saddly as time went on Valiants ailments started to catch up to him again.

After eventing him for 4 years we decided to retire him, about a year later we brought him out of retirement just to make a clean sweep of multiple first places, and then a few months later we had to put him down due to cancer, during my 6ish years of working with him we had many highs and lows, and the most amazing experiences, Please do watch the video below where i show what a great bond we had developed.
