BenMar Nightingale, Irish Draught Horse Filly

                                       Tremendous Extension!

BenMar Nightingale, ID is the best of both of her parents.  She trots 9 inches off the ground with an unbelieveable extension and elevated canter that would make her highly competitive in open dressage competition.  Her athleticism, stride and incredibly free shoulder make her suitable as a powerful, scopey jumper.  She is showered in talent and ability, yet her temperament is that of a adoring labrador retriever...and yes, she is most helpful in retrieving tools and anything else you might need!
