Face Up To It
Aptly deemed ‘DH’ (go figure) Face Up To It was a train wreck of a creature on the ground. He was not nasty however he had picked up everly annoying trait under the sun and could, windsuck, weave, kick-out and bite simultaneously… a very unique specimen.
He is the most beautiful fronted horse and he instantly one my heart for the simple fact that he was the exact same colour with similar markings as my first pony “Milo”.
Within three months of owning him he went from not being able to canter (at all) to carrying me to Barastoc Rider of the Year 2005.
He went on to be my riding competition horse where Highmont was a little less reliable. He also competed in D grade showjumping competitions up to around 1.15m-1.20m which improved the horses strength and flat work markedly.
