Hangon Melody is a beautiful, flashy 15.3h Irish Sport Horse mare who is 1/2 Irish Draught and 1/2 Thoroughbred. She is an athletic horse with 3 good gaits. She is healthy and sound. She has good bone and substance. She has been trained to drive, and really enjoys being hitched up to a carriage. She has competed at the Elk Creek Combined Driving Event at Fair Hill International. She has also attended a driving clinic with Paul Maye. She enjoys jumping and has been shown in the local hunters, winning her classes under saddle and earning Champion titles in both the Pleasure Division and Novice Equitation. She is currently jumping 36 with plenty of room to spare and the potential to jump higher with further training. She is presently fox hunting.
Melody is sired by the imported Irish Draught named Hangon Johnny who competed successfully in showjumping and eventing in both the UK and the USA. Hangon Johnny was the winner of the 2 year old colt class at the 1990 Irish National Show. His full sister named Madden Lady was the 1987 All Ireland Champion Foal, 1998 All Ireland Champion Filly and a Millstreet Qualifier in 1989.
