Rafferty wins his first class

Ballytruckle Rafferty, 5yo Welsh cob X Tb gelding, by Mill Creek Valiant out of Redeemable (Red Glow) has been ridden since November 2011. He has always loved being ridden, very cruisey and friendly. He went to a local Ribbon Day and the first class he went into he won!!

Best paced and Mannered. We also think Riff Raff is pretty cool, he has a rocking horse canter and Steve holds the reins between 2 fingers so light is the contact. You could ride this fellow with cotton thread for reins- he is so good in the mouth.

He has gated at 2 hunts so far this season and we will start his jumping schooling now the basics are in place.

L-R: Niamh West on Ballytruckle Centurion, 9yo Welsh cob (Millcreek Valiant X Waimarie Cerdiwen), Carolynn West on Ballytruckle Duchess 8yo Welsh cob (Glantraeth King Flyer (imp UK) X Waimarie Ceridwen) and Steve West on Ballytruckle Rafferty 5yo Welsh cob X tb (Millcreek Valiant X Redeemable)
