Ard Silhouette  b.1999 160cms grey ISH (sadly DIED 2013)

This mare is eight generations of our own breeding. When we had her broken by Eventing friends of ours, they said they could hack her out around the x-country jumps including the square ditches (part of their registered Novice event course) taking them in her stride. They said she was brilliant. We took her home and bred with her. Silhouette comes from a great eventing family. Ard Intimate (article right) was placed with me in Scarvagh (clear) and went on to winning Intermediate Eventing in the USA prior to an injury. Ard Black Cat was 5th Necarne International 3-Day Event and showjumped Internationally at 1.50m level.

The next dam Ard Image represented Great Britain at International Eventing with great success for her rider Mark Jenner. The next dam Ard Replica was never broken, she was by the great sire Sky Boy. The next dam was my first horse Ballymacad Copper Beech who won everything for me; Showjumping leagues, Dressage Championships and represented Ireland pony Club Senior Eventing; 5th in Stonleigh. The next dam Killala was 3rd in Badminton 3-Day Event with Ann Kidman. Killala was a full sister to Court Hill who took part in the Rome Olympics and The Quiet Man who showjumped Internationally with Capt. Romondo Dunzao.
