Subject: Holme Grove Byzantine - Tzar
Tzar is really well at the moment. We very much enjoy ourselves together and he has proved not only a great companion to me but also a great competitive all rounder – safe, trusting and steady. He is one of the calmest most agreeable horses I know and will give anything a try. We have competed successfully at dressage, show jumping and cross country and only until recently would happily steam around the x country. I was preparing him for a 3 day event in Milton Keynes this Summer and an old injury (which strangely I knew nothing about ) – the annular ligament, was causing a swelling in the tendon sheath. I have no and never have had any intention of parting with him and so therefore I have decided to only event on surfaces and since this is becoming more popular will not cause too much of a restriction.
All in all he has given me hours days months and years of enjoyment. We have been together now for 16 years. I spend time also hacking with my two daughters and their horses, Tzar although not the oldest is reliable, trustworthy – I can ride him at the end of the buckle or have him collected performing the fancy pants moves as a result of our ongoing dressage training. A real stunner. People warm to his handsome face, graceful action and easy attitude – I LOVE HIM
