This is a photo album page for Diamond Venture (aka: Woody, Pecker, Monkey)
Advanced Eventer

Woody was a firey little redhead who was born on the 10th of September, 1994. A Chestnut TB gelding by Home Office (NZ) out of Type (AUST), bred by RD Irvin just out of Bega on the NSW south coast. He started life as a racehorse with the name of Gold Reply, but found his true calling as a brave and talented eventer by the name of Diamond Venture.

The fairy tale story of the racetrack reject with a little bit of attitude becoming a famous 4* eventer was cut short. Woody passed away in March 2005 after a long battle with a lung abcess. Thanks to his vet Dougie for his excellent care and never give up attitude, and to all those who helped either with just a word of sympathy or  in assisting with the financial burden THANK YOU.
