This stunning horse is Dassett Eventing’s first proper venture into the world of pure show jumping! Kate bought Robin as an unbacked 3 year old colt from Ronan Rothwell at Boleybawn Horses. Our show jump trainer, Robert Snaddon, and Kate will jointly produce this horse on the jumping scene.
Robin is a striking black horse with a white diamond and four white socks. He moves well enough for a career in dressage but we are very confident we would like to produce him down the jumping route – he can give quite an exceptional feel over a fence! He carries his training through to all off site competitions and training, looking like he has the attitude to really excel down the competitive route.
Following some summer training as a 4yo, Robin did some considerable growing in the field during the autumn and winter of 2019. He looked so much stronger in his work in the spring of 2020, but as with all of our 5 year olds, he was turned away for a couple of months to reduce numbers at DE HQ through the Covid-19 lockdown. Back in work for the summer and autumn, he has been jumping better than ever.
We are very excited to see this stunning horse progress as he heads out on the competitive scene in 2021, and look forward to where this journey will take us!
