Ballymurphy Lad is a 17.2h, 2006 Irish Sport Horse gelding. ‘Koda’ as he is known around the barn, means friend or companion, which fits his sweet personality perfectly. Koda completed ten Preliminary level events during his 6 year old year in Ireland before being imported to the U.S, after which Kristin spent time working with Koda to perfect his dressage and show jumping skills. In 2014, Kristin and Koda garnered several top-10 placings together at the Preliminary level. Koda successfully made the step up to the Intermediate level in 2015 and placed 8th at his first CIC2* at Morven Park. This winter, Koda will be concentrating on show jumping with Kristin. Those who have had the chance to meet and watch Koda go can tell he is a very promising horse for the future and can’t wait to see where he can go under Kristin’s riding and training skills.
