Cargill Tyson Equestrian proudly presents for sale on behalf of owner “Inni” aka “ESB Irish Inspiration”. She is an 8yo 16.3hh Irish Sport Horse Mare. The ESB stud needs no introduction having produced countless 5* event horses and even some olympians! They are known for their temperament, movement, conformation, soundness, trainability, athleticism, confidence and jumping ability and Inni is an exceptional representation of these traits. Inni is by ESB Irish Edition who is by ESB Irish Enough who has produced countless international quality eventers. He was Ranked 7th in the world by the WBFSH in 2008 and sire of Olympic silver medal winner, Irish Jester, Kirby Park Irish Jamie, Jordan and others. ESB Irish Edition has had his fair share of successful progeny competing with great success at the highest levels of the sport. She is out of ESB Irish Day who was a competitive event horse herself. Inni’s current owner has had her since she was unbroken and it is with much regret that she is offered for sale. She has had a very correct upbringing and has a solid foundation of training under her belt. She is still a little green in the canter at times but she wants to learn and is extremely willing. She has been in professional eventing training with us for a month and her improvement has been outstanding. A true testament to her temperament and trainability. Before she was with us, she was in work with another trainer (as her owner has moved interstate) who took her out and about to clinics and cross country schooling. It was said that she was very well behaved and gave everything a go. She genuinely has the makings of an “all the way” eventing horse and we can see her shooting up the eventing levels to FEI quickly with the right rider. On the flat, she has big, scopey paces with huge ground cover (which is why the canter still needs more work to be able to sit and collect!). She is forward and very willing to be soft in the walk. She is active and expressive in the trot, independently maintaining her own rhythm, and very steady but light in the contact. In the canter on the left rein she still falls out a little bit and needs to get a bit sharper in the left turn. On the right rein in the canter she needs more bend and suppleness through the right ribcage. We are focusing on exercises that target this with her current training program and she has already improved out of sight. She does have a quality canter and with another few months of straightness training with her new rider, she will be dressage test ready! To show jump, she is an absolute natural and a serious talent for the future. Scopey, brave, willing, amazing technique. Ben has been jumping her 90cm+ out of trot over an array of fences and she is so athletic, she consistently makes a wow shape over a fence with a sharp front and good tuck! Ben has jumped her up to 110cm in grids and she finds it so easy. The canter will need to be stronger before she can competitively do course work over 1m but she is definitely on the way and showing all the signs she will make a top end, reliable and safe jumper. On the ground, we have not found her to be marey at all. In our experience and her owners, She has been a pleasure to catch, tack up, lead and I even clipped her myself including her face with no-one to hold her! She has been good in the stables, yards and paddocks. Although she doesn’t seem to get clingy or attached at all, her owners did mention she does like to have other horse friends around. She is still a bit impatient with the farrier and will need someone competent to hold her while she gets her feet done at this stage. Under saddle, she has been a dream to ride with not even a single shy/spook here in the month she has been with us. She has been ridden around the local roads and trails and was easy going and sensible. She has been very level-headed and showed absolutely no signs of pigroot, buck, rear, bolt etc. We can’t even really imagine her misbehaving in that sense but would still prefer her to go to an intermediate + rider/handler so she can achieve her true potential. She is quiet enough that she could make a great first young horse to bring on for a competent teenager who is aspiring to an FEI eventing career in the not so distant future alongside a good coach or trainer for guidance when needed. This is a seriously talented horse for a rider with huge eventing ambition! We are really really excited to see her out and about at events with a new rider as she is destined to be a cross country machine and an asset to any event riders team. Priced to sell!
