Sire: Salute the Truth (Thoroughbred) - Advanced Level Eventing Horse
Dam: Irish Cameo Rose (RIDSH) - King of Diamonds Granddaughter
Wild Irish Rose ("Ireland") is a 2016 chestnut, Irish Draught Sport Horse filly from the famous King of Diamonds line. She is 1/4 Irish Draught and 3/4 Thoroughbred - a cross often proven optimal for eventing. Ireland is one of the last foals out of the famous Salute the Truth stallion - America's only Thoroughbred Advanced Eventing Stallion with offspring competing at the Advanced Level. Salute the Truth also ranked 3rd in the USEF Leading Sires for Eventing in 2013!
With her outstanding confirmation and movement, Ireland is brimming with upper level potential and is an excellent addition to any show or breeding home. She is expected to mature to 17+ hands.
Ireland is well started under saddle and over fences. She knows she was meant to be an eventer! She is a mare with an outstanding work ethic who is brave, forward, a hard trier, eager to please and just excellent to ride.
Ireland is eligible for membership with the IDHSNA and is registered with the USEA (186238).
In 2017, Ireland competed in the USEA's Future Event Horse Series and qualified and showed at the USEA FEH East Coast Finals in Maryland, scoring 76.25% and 76.35%. Throughout the season, judges often commented on the nice length of neck, good shoulder angle, nice round haunches, well shaped feet, nice hock angle, straight legs, nice overstep, and freedom in shoulder.
