One eye horse?

Does anyone here has a horse that was born with just one eye? Or had a blind eye?

I have a weird story to tell....
There is a horse in the competitions down here at my city he is a big 6 yr old warmblood, he is pretty famous cos he has one eye since he was born and he jumps 1.30 he ended ranked no 8 in that heigh this past season (just ended) and did an amazing job at nationals.
The vet, rider and trainer say the missing eye doesent bother him at all. He was just bought by a BIG actually HUGE company named INFRA that supports que equestrian sport.
And they told the local certificated trainers to get one of their advanced students they could just choose one each trainer, and the students will compete to get a the horse, he is a impressive horse with awsome pedigree he was brought from europe so far that's what I know.
Well making the long story short my trainer nominated me, and we all have been going into ridding test and getting elimintaed (they should make a reaslity show bout this lol) and now im still standing all I have to do is do the last test on him, ride him and do a small course....
Im pretty excited cos I really need an expirianced horse and warmbloods have always been my dream horses.
I was just curious bout anyone else having a one eyed horse lol...also.. I have never ride a warmblood I own a TB, any tips for my last test?
And wish me luck I really want this boy home....

Blind horses compensate VERY well. Your guy is only half blind. I have a horse who went completely blind, and he's still child-safe. He's a little spooky, but nothing terrible. He just needs reassurance that he's not going to run into anything.

My friend used to have a mare with a blind eye!
She was a bit skitish, but over all a good girl!

Good luck with your horse!
