ARRATHORNES DRACO.

​2017, Black Colt

​(Eros x Arrathornes Make Believe)

Prvivately owned by Mandi Meer we are exceptionally proud that this outstanding black colt foal out of  Arrathornes Make Believe who is herself by the Stud's foundation stallion, Balinmore Irish Rebel.​is to be allowed by Mandi to advertise the quality sport horses we will be breeding in the future. ​He is by Shovern Stud's beautiful and talented KWPN stallion, Eros (AES Licensed Stallion).


Born on 14th May 2017 Draco has already achieved much in his short life. Bred to show jump he is a natural showman and delights in being centre of attention, loving the crowds.


​His achievements to date are as follows :-


BEF Futurity : Vale View

  • Highest Score Show Jumping Foal and a Higher First Premium of 8.63% with the comments "a very attractive well                         grown foal who really fills the eye". 
  • Finished joint 9th Nationwide in the Show Jumping Foal section​
  • Finished joint 12th Nationwide in all ages combined in the Show Jumping section​


​Great Yorkshire Show 2017

​           2nd - Irish Draught Pure or Partbred colt or filly foal


​Irish Draught Horse Society (GB) - National Breed Show

  • ​Irish Draught Sport Horse Youngstock Champion 201


​British Show Horse Association Hunter Championship Show

Draco​ is a hugely exciting prospect for the future. Unsurprisingly Mandi will be keeping him to produce for showing until 4yrs of age when he will go into show jumping training.  Mandi has kindly agreed that he will be leased to the Stud at the appropriate time.


Definitely a "one to watch!"  - he already had a write up in the Horse & Hound at the tender age of 3 months!
