4th generation homebred Dark Halo (Bess) is a sportshorse type with the potential to compete at amateur level. Lightly worked with low mileage she’s been allowed plenty of time to mature without stress on young joints and is now ready to be brought on. Bess has clean straight limbs/movement, lovely flowing paces which are very comfortable to ride so may also be suited for endurance. Has paces for the dressage arena and pops a wee jump showing aptitude for this with scope to go further with jumping/eventing - would suit an amateur riding club rider or someone looking for a leisure riding horse that they can love and enjoy. Bess is sweet natured and well mannered, she loves nothing more than coming over for a brush and a cuddle. Brought up in a herd so well socialised, and used to tractors and machinery. Has lived out most of her life on ad lib grass/hay with minimal hard feed and only rugged if weather stormy. Loads & travels in our horsebox, currently barefoot as she has good feet however has had front shoes on before. Can be viewed at Oldtown Equestrian in Peterculter.

Her dam our homebred mare Vivacious Gold has already produced several great youngsters for us who have been sold to competitive homes. Her sire Free Spirits Gold’s comes from family of riding horses who have competed and won at local & regional showing, dressage, show jumping and cross country - sane enough to do everyday riding activities, yet talented enough to win, he himself is a prolific riding club dressage winner and proven popular at shows for his consistent wins and excellent behaviour. His sire Livius was a Grade A showjumper and son of the great jumping stallion Secundus, Grade A and five times British Showjumping Sire of the year based on his progeny's winnings. His damsire Invincible B (by VDL Wellington) was also a successful Grade A jumper. - VDL Wellington competed at Advanced level dressage and was also a winner in International Showjumping, a son of "sire of the century" Nimmerdor, who has no less than 40 approved stallions including Goodtimes, Heartbreaker Aram Amethist to name but a few.

Her sire is Dark Vision is a true gentleman riding horse and combines the best aspects as being exceptionally well moving with the kindest and easiest of natures. Dark Vision is by the famous MFS Vision out of Osprey B. In 2004 as a 2 year old, at the Scottish Sportshorse (SSH) Gradings, MFS VISION was awarded a 1st Premium from the KWPN Inspectors Mr Toine Hoefs and Miss Ine van Deurzen. During the feedback Mr Hoefs said he thought Vision had International potential as a dressage horse. In September 2005 he went forward for Stallion Grading, this time judged by the KWPN Inspectors Miss Ine van Deurzen and Mr Bart Henstra. He was proclaimed the CHAMPION STALLION and awarded the highest status of "LICENSED", with top marks for movement, conformation and jump. He spent 2008 in Holland being trained at Stal Laarrakkers before returning to the UK.
In September 2007 he presented his first crop of foals through the SSH, MFS CALIANA, MFS CASSANDRA, COLOURED VISION and PERFECT VISION were all awarded 1st Premiums. His daughter MFS CASSANDRA was the highest awarded horse out of 145 forward for movement! At the 2008 BEF Futurity Evaluations his stock were again successful. COLOURED VISION was awarded a 1st Premium in the dressage section, and WILDWIND ILLUSION was awarded a 1st Premium in the eventing section. In 2009 his daughter MFS CALIANA was the overall highest scoring horse at the SSH Gradings held throughout Scotland!! In 2010 two of his daughters from his first foal crop were awarded the STER PREDICATE - MFS CALIANA with 78% AND HAZARD FLEUR with 76%
In the dressage arena his offspring MFS CALIANA and WILDWIND HORIZON are both making their marks, with MFS CALIANA ridden by Jennifer Johnston now multiple Regional Champion at Prelim, Novice and Elementary, also Reserve National Champion at Prelim level.

WILDWIND HORIZON has also qualified at both the Prelim and Novice Regional Championships, and will also be heading for the Winter Regional Championships 2015. Another son MFS DE VISION is gaining marks of 74%+ in Prelim level in 2014.
