Pleasing Touch is an IDSH mare by Manu Forti's TouchDown, who was the 2014 Hunter sire of the year, witth the NW Sporthorse Association, who goes back to Touch of the Blues, who is well known throughout the world and proven sire and grandsire of top breeding and competition horses, and who competed successfully at Intermediate level eventing in England, in addition to being out of the great broodmare KerryOak Lady Dawn, an incredible Irish Draught mare, who was a Select Hornsby Premium mare, and produced many great offspring.  Siofra as we call her, her dam Always Pleasing was an incredibly well-bred tb mare, from lines that produced great racehorses, and European hurdlers.

She produced a lovely first foal in 2017 by our young stallion Manu Forti's Out of the Blue, called Out of Touch, and wow'ed us completely with the quality, and athleticism, along with great attitude. She will be taking a small break from motherhood, to partake in a young rider development projectwe are partnering up with Woodloch Stable, so will be competing with Tatum Gray, in the eventing field before a return back to the broodmare band for future foals.
