Cobrador

Stable name: Coby

Cobrador (Coby) is a Hispano gelding, he is the longest serving member of the Historic Equitation team and possibly the most adored! Dominic says this horse has taught him the most and forgiven his mistakes more than any other.

Coby is a great horse for skill at arms and 17th Century Dressage where his natural suppleness and classical training shine through. His skills are in the more refined movements with controlled yet still explosive power!
