Looking Glass Latino  purchased from

Flynn's Miniatures

 and I am delighted to welcome him to Na Cuasaighe.

Looking Glass Latino is exceptionally well bred. His sire being 

world famous Edwardo of Kilverston

who amongst his accolades took the title of

 "Supreme Champion" at The Horse of the Year Show.

Looking Glass Latino takes after his sire in not only colouring but his temperament and floating movement.

LG Latino has been shown very successfully in both the UK and Ireland.

Below is an example of LG Latino's prodgeny.

Latino is at present being broken to drive and is taking it all in his stride. At the moment he is long reining through and around obstacles, over poles and working on voice commands.

We are looking forward to further advances in his career...

A very relaxed Latino long reining between obstacles and poles in the arena.
