RORKES DRIFT

BORN : 13 May 1998

Sire : Rock King

Dam : Malwood Alice            by Beatos


     


Alfie was bred by Mrs Claire Mills of Malwood Walk Stables in Newtown, Minstead, Hampshire and was bought by Paul and I as a 4 year old in November 2002, from Louise Ettridge. 

Alfie's competition career only really started in 2011, due to personal commitments of ours in starting the farm, and building a house!   I BD dressaged him as a 5 year old for about 6 months and then the 7 year "rest period" started. 

Then April 2011 was here and his competition career started, showjumping!!  The 12 year old was just like a 3 year old, gawping at everything but enjoyed the showjumping so much that soon he became more fixated with the jumps than what was around him.   He is now jumping confidently and with lots of scope, so we're hoping the fences will grow in 2012 along with his confidence and we hope to BSJA him by the summer.
