New Horse from Bruce Davidson

I am the proud new rider of a very fancy looking 3-year-old gelding by Salute The Truth out of Eagle Lion's full sister! The gelding was purchased from a local breeder/Olympic & World champion, Bruce Davidson.

Being born at Chesterland Farm, his current name around the barn is 'Chester'. He is a perfect mix of 15/16 thoroughbred, 1/16 Irish Sport Horse. He is a beautiful mover, and should be a wonderful jumper considering his uncle, (Eagle Lion).

I plan to spend the next few months gently teaching Chester the basics. Standing proud at 16.3hh tall, he looks mature enough to start eventing early next year.

I would like to thank Bruce and Susie for giving me a great deal on such a promising looking horse. Below is a video of me having my test drive on him.



  1. He's adorable! Can't wait to see him go next year!

  2. Yay, Stormy has a rider! It is very exciting to see these horses grow up. I remember Stormy as a baby and broke him out as a 2 year old, under watchful eyes of course! Have fun!
