Royal Guard was one of my (Sue’s) most favourite horses ever. He is owned by Alex Regula and she wrote this sweet bio on him.
I’ve had him for four years now and never plan on getting rid of him! He’s now known as Troy around the barn and A Bold Promise at shows because after being on him one time I knew how much potential he had and that we could get through anything as a team. I fell in love with his affectionate and smart personality right away. Looking for a new horse to advance with I wanted a big chestnut with as much white as I could find. I just love everything about him! It took some adjusting for him to get used to different style of riding but we are currently competing in local hunters going around 2’6 courses smoothly. The first year I had him he received a big blue ribbon only a few shows into the season at York Country Day School doing 2’6 pairs on the outside course. For the 2012 show year I plan on eventing, taking him Beginner Novice and advancing as he proves himself even more. He loves learning new things in dressage and shows his talent every time I ride. He’s fine out on the trails alone or with young high spirited horses. He has had young children and first time riders on him and knows exactly how to behave. Troy is just the best all-around quiet horse and still has so much room to grow in the show ring.
