Shannondale Archie (Archie)
Archie is a 6 year old 16.2hh grey gelding by Shannondale Sarco out of a Lux mare owned by Jenny Levett and Miranda H.
Archie was purchased from Monart Sales as a three year old in 2018 and we turned him away over the winter and backed him the following spring.
He is a lovely chap; he loves people and is a tall narrow horse, light on the ground with lovely paces and jump.
He had no pressure in 2019 and just did some hacking, schooling and clear round jumping and hunter trials in the autumn. He started his eventing career in 2020 and we had a lot of fun with him as he learnt the ropes.
Archie will step up to Novice in 2021 and hopefully aim for the Young Horse Championships at Le Lion d’Angers.
I’m excited about Archie and could easily see him eating up a track like Badminton in years to come.
