*Imported from Ireland to the USA in September 2004: Sonny stands 16.3 hands with 10” bone, and has a wonderful temperament. He is a superb mover, and shows the ability to be a big jumper. Sonny is a beautiful example of what foundation stock should be. Wonderful temperament, athletic ability, and outstanding bloodlines. He combines the bloodlines of: Mountain View RID./Sea View Lass RID and Celtic Gold RID/Crutt Lady RID.

Over a century of selection has produced a warm-blooded breed which are very sound, sensible animals with good bone, substance and quality. The Irish Draught is neither as massive nor as heavily feathered as it's name implies and has movement that is smooth and free, without exaggeration, and not heavy nor ponderous. Standing over a lot of ground, the Draught has an exceptionally strong and sound constitution, great stamina and an uncanny jumping ability. In addition, this breed possesses a fabulous temperament made up of willingness, intelligence, docility and common sense.

Not only is the Irish Draught a perfect companion mount for riders of all ages, but it possesses the ability and versatility to participate in various levels of jumping, eventing, dressage, hunting and driving events.  Crossed with the proper mare, you have the perfect sport horse.  We search far and wide to breed with the proper thoroughbred which produces a quality sport horse.  Sonny almost always transfers his quality confirmation to his foals.
