Kinsky horses are wonderful. We have a 14 year old gelding that was bred at the Equus Kinsky Stud in the Czech Republic (though we bought him after he landed here he is 'pink papered') and trained in Germany (across the border). He is far more beautiful than pictures can tell, he actually 'sparkles' when he begins to sweat. They are very hardy horses, easy keepers and fairly mellow fellows. He was not that expensive - it's just getting them to you from the stud, that's costly. They are a wonderful breed and wish there were more of them! IMG_4446.JPG
THis is a picture of my son in last year's competition on his Kinsky horse - yes, they won championships in both Preliminary and Novice level dressage. I think partly because the horse looks so good - he's stunning down the centre line.
