Laxton Hijacked - "Jack"

17.2hh Shire x Tb,

D.O.B. 1997

Jack was bought as a backed and turned away 5 year old.  He started dressage "as a joke" and went  training with Allison Clarke, being big clumsy and not even able to trot around the arena never mind canter!! 

Gradually he started to find the movements much easier and started his competitive career.  He went quite quickly to doing very well at elementary.

Jack has been a bit hit and miss in his competitive career, only because of time and "he gets put to the back of the queue"!!!!  He always tries his best at whatever he does and is the kindest horse you could ever wish to have.

2009 has proved to be the most successful year having his first trip out in hand, at his first show he took Champion In Hand and qualified for the Royal London Show.  He won the Shire/Part Bred and took Supreme In Hand Heavy Horse Of Great Britain 2009, what an acheivement on a second try at In Hand Classes!!!!!!

He is a really lovely person and a pleasure to have about - being a real big softy!!!
