The Saddle-up Stable - Brook's Bazaar
huntsman had one horse, on loan from one of the joint-Masters.
But one is not enough! Enter Brook. We found her at the
High Peak Harriers in Derbyshire, where she had been ridden by the
whipper-in for one season and was promoted to huntsman's horse with
him. She was for sale due to retirement of the Mastership.
She is by ID stallion Enniskeane Prince out of a TB mare - Wardbrook
(by Commandeer) - who also produced the coloured stallion Bazaars
Texas. She started her career eventing, and had several starts
at pre-novice level.
She is quite lightly built, having taken to her dam's side rather than
the Irish Draught, and a brilliant jumper. We bought he part way
through an already short season, but she proved very capable, and -
while keen - is ridden in a happy mouth straight snaffle! She
did have some back problems which showed as difficult to bridle and a
slightly scratchy gait in walk, but these were sorted by our back man,
Barry Pearson-Adams. She's seen here just after roughing off,
and still looking very fit. With good grass coming though, the
next picture will show her a little fatter!
