He is an unbelievable jumper, one of the best I have sat on. He is a great galloped cross country, and runs in a snaffle. He always puts in a workman like dressage test that leaves him close to the leaders.
‘The Eagle’ is wonderful to have around the barn being quiet and easy. He is easy to shoe, clip and hack out. He would be suitable for an ambitious young rider or a professional looking to ride at the top level. It is a very rare opportunity that a horse of this caliber is offered for sale while he is in the prime of his carrier. I believe he has many, many years left in the tank.
Eddie is a special horse for me, so I am eager to place him in the right situation. Please contact me for more details and pricing.

Eddie had a hard start to life, racing in outback Australia in 36 races. He was mostly racing on country tracks having medium success. On two occasions Eddie raced on successive days, racing on a Saturday, and then backing up to race the next day on Sunday….I figured he was a tough horse.
I spotted him out at a friends farm near Townsville Queensland after he had retired from racing. He was skin and bones, shoeless…….but had that look about him. I was only in flip-flops and shorts, so when I tried him I was jumping him over logs in shorts and no shoes. I had to have him!
I left him with my good mate Kevin McNab who spent a month feeding him until Eddie flew straight into PA to a bitter winter in Feb 2010.

I love this horse, he is a mover in the dressage and has a phenomenal jump. George and Gretchen Wintersteen have joined the journey in becoming part owners. Gretchen is a first flight foxhunter with the notorious Cheshire Foxhunt, while George is a retired race car driver. They are both lovers of horse sports, owning stakes winning steeple chase horses in the past.
Denise Lahey and Pierre Colin also joined the ownership team with Eddie and he had a great year of competing at the Intermediate level in 2013. He has successfully moved up to Advanced in 2014 and onto the 3* level in 2015!
