​2017, Black Gelding

​(Eros x Arrathornes Make Believe)

Prvivately owned, we are exceptionally proud that this outstanding black gelding out of  Arrathornes Make Believe who is herself by the Stud's foundation stallion, Balinmore Irish Rebel.​is to be leased by his owner to the Stud to allow us 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. He particularly excels when under floodlights!

Draco​ is a hugely exciting prospect for the future. We are extremely lucky that his owner is allowing him to stay with us to be produced for the show ring until 4yrs of age when he will go into show jumping training.  

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