Rushmoor Icy Gold

Icy is now under saddle and impressing everyone with his jumping ability.  Here he is at his first outing doing a bit of show hunter and although not a technically correct show hunter style he sure is giving that jump some air.  Icy is out of my mare Witzgold by Rushmoor Bravo, I think I should have kept this one?


The beautiful Sonny is up for sale and looks a picture flying over this sizeable obstacle.  We have seen a bit of Sonny over the last few years and he sounds a delightful horse, albeit a very tall horse.  Currently for sale in the South Island ... be quick if you want a golden pegasus.

El Blanco

I saw this lovely young colt standing at stud recently and he is the grandson of my Casper.  He looks very much like a younger version and I'm sure he will become a popular sire.  Casper's legacy lives on.

Ski Hi Cinnamon Twist

This gorgeous looking mare was advertised on TM recently.  By Casper she is a lovely example of a big strong hunter type.  A beautiful picture of both horse and rider. 

Eyreleigh Tir-Na-Og

I have been stalking this mare on Facebook for quite some time and when she came up for sale just recently I could not resist any longer.  Ceilidh as she is known (can't quite get my tongue around her registered name) is a quality looking mare by Coalmans Touch (Irish Draught).  Having arrived here the previous day and looking non too impressed with her rubber bit and being asked to ride in the rain she still looks $1M and I am very excited to see what she and Casper can produce.  Watch this space.

And then there were two

Well you may remember my lovely Witzgold who I intended to get at least one more foal from after she produced the stunning Icy Gold.  She decided that wasn't part of her plan so out of the broodmare paddock she came and a year later this is a picture of her jumping at Brookby with my daughter riding.  So impressed was I with her attitude and ability .... I bought a mini-one.  Welcome Bella by the same sire as Witzgold (Classic Goldcard) and out of a Lansing/Urban mare.

Rushmoor Gee Whizz

I couldn't resist posting another picture of this lovely horse, this time competing at Gore A&P.  She has had an awesome season in the show ring and her owner has been more than pleased with her behaviour.  Unfortunately the hunting season has come to a grinding halt with Covid19, so she is probably getting a well earned rest.   

Rushmoor Imposing

This stunning gelding, who is a full brother to Hot Shot below, has now been sold.  Fortunately he has gone locally so I will be able to see how he progresses.  As well as seeing him strut his stuff in the show ring we might see him out eventing, although it may be a couple of years yet as he is just a 3 year old.   

Rushmoor Hot Shot

Well this lovely mare is now 4 years old and off to be broken in.  She hasn't been on the float/truck since she was a weeny foal, but walked straight on and stood like a dream.  Looking forward to getting this one out and about.   


I just happened to see, as I trawled through TradeMe, another Casper offspring who I last saw a few years ago just learning to jump.  Well she has certainly learnt very well by the looks of her style over this fence and this one is only a pony.  Bella is said to be a very careful and brave jumper with an easy attitude - all the ingredients everybody wants.  If you are looking for a good pony, you might want to look at this one.   

Rushmoor Gee Whizz

Someone seems to be hauling away a majority of the ribbons at this show and I am not surprised as this horse is turning into an absolute stunner.  I have no doubt Blondie (as she is known) will be hard to beat soon as she is certainly improving every time I see her.  Don't worry North Islanders, this one is also in the South Island so you are safe ... unless she ventures north to HOY?    

Rushmoor Bravo

I saw the beautiful Bravo at a local show jumping event, as did everyone else there that turned to look.  It was his debut in the show jumping ring and he certainly looked the part.  He is the sire of my pretty Jezebel (see sale page) so I am hoping she has inherited some of her daddy's talent.


Another Casper offspring has been spotted in the South Island, and this one is currently for sale.  Apparently sassy by name, sassy by nature but you need a bit of sass if you intend to go places and this horse looks like she has the ability to do just that!  She is a full sister to my lovely Ocka so is a winner in my eyes already.  

Going Irish

Excited to have a couple of Irish broodmares in the paddock and hopefully both in foal to Casper (with his little bit of Irish).  Unfortunately one of these mares is not mine and shortly returning to her home in the South Island - fingers crossed for some lovely Irish babies.
