Hi Susan,
Sadly he has problems with his sacroiliac which was diagnosed shortly after I brought him three years ago, I brought him for dressage.  So although he is not up to doing what I want he is such a lovely person I can't bare to part with him.  We are still trialing different injections with Rossdales but I think the outlook is that he will be happier just being a hack - so if you ever hear of anyone interested in loaning a bombproof light hack/ companion do let me know! (cwaters@law-staff.co.uk)  Everyone that knows him knows that he could of been a superstar if he didn't have these problems which is really sad!
Having said all this I am thinking of getting another horse for dressage when finances allow (I work in recruitment so the economic climate is not doing my bank balance much good!).  I would love to get another Holme Park horse and I have my eye on Coleus! 
Kind regards,

These photos show him as a foal and now as a 16.3hh handsome boy
