Lot 007 – EPA Murray

My selection for the upcoming Go For Gold sale is Lot 007 – EPA Murray. This beautifully produced, stunning grey gelding has superb conformation and clean correct limbs. He is a fluid moving type and looks to have an excellent outlook on life. He has a lovely way of jumping, and appears brave and careful. EPA Murray has already won and placed at EI 90 and 100 level, as well as placing at the RDS Dublin Horse Show in the lightweight hunter classes for two successive years. With a clean cross-country record and sub thirty dressage tests from every event he has attended, this horse is the full package.

The other major attraction for me is that EPA Murray is traditionally Irish bred. Being by a son of the legendary Ard Grandpa and with Big Sink Hope as the dam sire, this horse has the best of Irish Draught and Thoroughbred breeding combined. Ireland is somewhat smothered with foreign-bred horses carrying Irish passports because they were bred in this country, but that is not at all the same thing as an actual Irish horse. Whilst, for the most part, a horse’s attitude and ability are far more important than his pedigree, it has been my experience over the years that you simply can’t beat a traditional Irish horse for intelligence, stamina, courage, and durability.

EPA Murray ticks every single box for me.
