Our Horses

Ulisco de Montsec (Talisker) is a 16.2hh, bright bay Selle Français gelding, born in 2008. He was a chance find and came to Hillside in September 2017. He had very little muscle structure so was worked slowly and carefully under saddle and on the lunge to strengthen him. He was taken to watch Darcy in vaulting sessions and we found when he was finally introduced to vaulters he seemed to know exactly how to behave. He has become a truly amazing vaulting horse and is loved by parents and children because he has such a kind temperament. In 2019, he competed with our vaulters in France and Belgium (gaining two podium places).

Omeath Clover (Laith) is a 17.1hh chestnut ISHxID gelding, born in 2005. He learnt fast and adapted very well to his new life in equestrian vaulting. He enjoys being schooled on the flat and hacking out. He is very affectionate and friendly.

LCC Proano (Bramble)  is a 17hh ISH dark bay gelding, born in 2009. He is related to Laith through the sire Clover Hill. He is owned by coach Lesley Ross and is making excellent progress as a vaulting horse.

Parcanto (Pernod) is a 17hh grey gelding, born in 2013.

Anonymouse (Mouse) is a 17.3hh bay ISH gelding , born in 2009. His grand-sire is King of Diamonds. He spent the 6 years prior to coming to Hillside in the scottish borders sharing a field with sheep and a shetland. We have brought him on slowly under saddle and introduced him to vaulting. We are very pleased with his progress and think he has a promising future.
