Pip is a very tall horse - but not wide and has been owned and ridden by a "petite" amateur lady rider. He has competed up to Prix St George equivalent in Germany, is very affectionate and he has a superb attitude and tons of manners which makes dealing with his height not an issue. To be honest I have never ridden a horse so powerful and highly trained - it is an absolute privilege!
I have promised these friends that I am determined to put the work in to build a partnership with Pip but I can't tell you how excited I am and what a classy horse he is - much more than any of us imagined when there was vague talk of a horse from Germany coming over. I still have to pinch myself to make sure this is not all a dream.
