EQUESTRIAN RETREAT CENTRE
Edgar's previous owner was looking for good home for him as she wanted to move on to a higher level dressage horse. A previous student of ours had horses at the same barn in Richmond and she suggested Evergreen Acres as a suitable environment for him. Edgar is a beautiful , big Lippizanner/Hanoverian gelding with the floating, graceful movement of his breed but a large melanoma (the curse of many grey horses) on his jawline and the suspicion of a weakness in his off-hind from a previous injury, made him a gift horse to be cherished. We were fortunate to have a gifted dressage rider with us at this time and as she worked with Edgar we all enjoyed seeing him flourish.
After a couple of years on the mainland in Langley, Maple Ridge and eventually with a herd of buddies in a lovely property in Hatzic, Edgar returned to Bowen when Bryoni and her family came back to live on the property. He still has the biggest "spook" of any horse I know, but with few demands made of him now, Edgar is finally learning to fully trust and relax with most of us but he is still a horse that needs to be handled with care.
