SIRE: FAST SILVER By Silver Hunter out of Fast Woman

SireBorn in 2012, the son of Fast Silver, the Gold Merit accredited sire and from the young mare, Derradda Mist, herself already a National Champion, Silver Squire could not have a better descent. Fast Silver is a Silver Merit sire for showjumping and a Gold Merit sire for his showing offspring.

DAM: DERRADDA MIST BY Gurrane Zidane out of Invermist (By Inver Steel)


Still only 10 year old, Derradda Mist, Silver Squire’s dam has an enviable CV to her credit. She is a daughter of the late RDS Champion, RID Stallion Gurrane Zidane and from Invermist, whose sire Inver Steel (Agherlow x Ginger Dick) was
exported to Australia. Derradda Mist won the prestigious “Mare of the Future” and Reserve Supreme Champion at the National Breed Show in 2011 and claimed 2nd prize at the RDS in 2016. A winner of classes for the “Mare suitable to produce a Heavy Weight Hunter” and Mare and Foal 60/40 Combination classes, Derradda Mist has all the superlatives of a superior standard RID mare. Her foals follow... her filly foal won the RDS Filly Foal Class 2015, while Silver Squire himself took 2nd place as a foal at the same venue.
