Last week I went for a little visit to Tendring, to meet Lorna and the gorgeous Dutch Warmblood stallion, Pelgrim-K. It was freezing cold, but beautifully sunny. My favourite kind of winter day.
Lorna is loaning the very handsome Pelgrim from his owner, Alison Twigg, while her own mare is out of action for a while. He’s a twenty-one year-old Grade A Showjumper and up until last year was living his best life, covering mares and competing.
Lorna plans to have some fun on him, out jumping, over the coming months and regardless of his veteran status, he is definitely not showing any signs of hanging up his gloves any time soon.
As you can see from the images we captured, he was more than happy to strut his stuff for my camera and is definitely a natural poser. I think we need to give Lloyds Bank a call, because he could definitely be their next model!
And despite being a stallion, I’m told that he’s a total softie and a very laid back, easy chap. And a total dreamboat, with it.
