Performance

His aptitude for jumping is something to see; clearing 3’ 9” with ease. He has lovely elevated, floating and ground covering paces as well as a wonderful temperament.

BALMORAL’S CHARLIE BOY was one of the first RID stallions to be assessed under the new linear system in 2011. The panel that carried out the inspections included: Miss Marily Power and Mr Michael Ryan from Ireland; and, from the IDHS(GB), Mrs Gaynor Mitchell, Mrs Mary Wilson and Mr John Newborough. Only 3 passed muster on the day and were vetted but, new to 2011, they now also undergo an endoscope and x-rays.

At his grading, Mary Wilson the Chairperson of the panel thought that BALMORAL'S CHARLIE BOY “could easily be the next Skippy”.
