I have a very beautiful chestnut gelding by Longdean Westminster who will be ready for his first dressage season this year. He has a beautifull temperament and is a fabulous mover. I would always buy my horses from this stud x
In July 2020, I noticed Wilfred’s advert and arranged with Diane at Bowland Irish Draughts to come and view him. They were professional and extremely friendly and I knew that Wilfred would be coming home with us. We were able to see his sire (Caerba Legacy) onsite and would have been able to see his dam had she not tragically died a while earlier. Everything that Diane told us about his personality and traits passed through from his sire has been true, and he is the most laid back and chilled youngster who has the most amazing attitude to learning new things. People on my current livery yard have enquired about his breeding and been contemplating using Bowland for their stud service after seeing what Wilfred is like. If I’m ever looking for another horse Bowland is the only place I’ll be going.
