Empire

Hi there folks!  My name is Empire.  I am a handsome 16.1 hand chestnut Oldenburg gelding.  I was born in 2001.  I was donated to Fieldstone in October of 2012 by Ali Mandovi.  Some of you may recognize me; I was shown locally as a Hunter, with local trainer Megan Bash.  Some of you that board at Scenic Run may have known me as ‘Milk’, that was my barn nickname.

I am excited to be here at Fieldstone.  I have some arthritis in my front ankle that retired me from the show ring.  I can’t keep jumping like I did as a youngster.  I am a steady, easy going guy.  I will be great at teaching riders to post and help them gain confidence as they become more independent.

Here’s what you need to know about me. Since I have arthritis I may start out a little stiff, but I quickly work out of it.  I like to be groomed but can be a little sensitive to the hard brush. I prefer a gentle curry and soft brush.  You may notice that I have a brand on the lower part of my left hip. That is for identification purposes.  I also have an old scar in my right eye, not to worry – I see everything fine.  I am eager to get to work and meet everyone!
