About Us

Une Etoile de L'Eclypse

We have purchased this horse as Michael Newman's hunt horse to ride in the Norfolk Hunt. The translation of her French name is "A Star of the Eclypse". Her barn name is Luna. (She has been called Ooni and we hope she accepts the new name.) She was located in Virginia and hunted there for a couple of years. She has lots of show experiance as a Grand Prix show jumper. In May of 2022 she was reported to be 15-16 years old. (This was incorrect see chip information below that reports her as foaled in 2004 and 18 years old.) She stands 17.1 hands high and is a registered Belgian Warmblood. (Additional breed info: www.belgianwarmblood.com and www.belgian-warmblood.com)

Show Jumping History

Somewhat long ago she competed at the Grand Prix level in show jumping. The previous owner says that she stopped being willing to jump the 1.5 meter heights and that is why she got her. The videos below are from those competitions.

Pre Purchase Exam Report

A prepurchase exam was held with with Dr. Davis of piedmont.vet (540) 364-4950 on June 8th at 10 AM.

Basic summary the horse is in remarkably good condition for the age and history. She might not be a candidate for high level dressage, should be ridden more on the straight rather than in the ring. Some minor lameness RT hind hock and RT coffin found, a 1 out of 5. Dr. Davis's overview was that the only surprise in this exam was how good shape she was in for her age and history. Dr. Davis says that several years of hunting with Norfolk should be expected.
