Don Rosario, (Rex) arrived out of the horsebox sight unseen. He's a big horse my friend had told me, when a green broke 18 3 backed out of the trailer I thought, there's no chance in hell that I'm sitting up on that. After lots of lunging and moments of indecision I finally tucked my gumption up under my hat and sat up on what has become the most wonderful horse I have ever ridden.
He's now a few years later working at Prix St George and we have our sights sets on glorious dreams. Everyday is a learning curve and a life lesson and making sure he's working to his potential but still kept in his best form has to be a priority at his size and height.
Keep me sound allows me to stay relaxed in the knowledge that I'm doing my best to look after him and the New Bluud keeps a pep in his enormous stride in training weeks. From Irish Green To Olympic Gold
