Highlands Mr Henrysee
2008 Grey Gelding (Glenormiston Bartley x Strong Caper (T/B)
In 2012 we were offered the opportunity to purchase Highlands Mr Henrysee from a friend after he had been sent to Asham Connemaras & Sporthorses for education. Jonathan raved about ‘Henry’ when he rode him and so we took up the offer and purchased him as a future eventer for the kids. Our intentions were twofold, as well as the fact that he was such a nice horse under saddle he is also the first progeny of our stallion Glenormiston Bartley. If he grew into the horse that we expected, he would be a great advertisement for ‘Bart”.
In the last 10 years he has totally exceeded our expectations and matured into a very serious performance horse. Excelling in both SJ and Eventing and winning at Championship Grade PC and 1* EA, he has proved to be the very best advertisement that we could have asked for in representing his sire and our Sporthorse breeding programme!
Henry has performed successfully in every arena that we have tested him in with both Sam and Ashley. Henry and Sam won the Hi Point Partbred Connemara at the 2013 Scone Showjumping Club competition and at the 2014 Denman Pony Club Showjumping Championships they won Champion as well as taking out the trophy for the highest pointscore of the Championships. Consistently scoring in excess of 70% in his dressage with Ashley he finished as the Reserve Champion Eventer at the Interschools spectacular at Tamworth in 2014. Henry was awarded as one of the Top 5 National Sporthorses in the CPBSA awards in 2014 and then graduated to take out the Title of National Connemara Sporthorse in 2015. Henry also won the NSW PCA State Eventing Championships in 2015 and then was Reserve Champion in 2016 when it became a Combined Training event with the Cross Country course washed away! He was a member of the Zone PC Team competing at the Sydney Royal Easter Show, was a member of the High Performance Eventing Squad at NEGS and even excelled in Stockman’s Challenges.
