Aura has now returned to Germany after - She is very happy at The Kasselman's yard as a broodmare. She was a very kind mare and hard to replace, however, after lots of searching we found a very special schoolmaster Rohan (Roo) from Elder Klatzko Dressage. Looking forward to the future with Roo.
And now also have a talented horse in Skjoldsgaard Hippo-Vo (Hippo)
Thank you to Hippo and Roo for helping secure an Individual slot of Ireland
They both now have lovely new homes!
Now have the ride on the talented Grand Prix Horse Cleverboy owned by Bronte Watson and a fantastic walking horse coming up Dark Diamond!
