Eclipse was born at Avoca Park after we had wanted to mix the bloodlines of Delamore Echo, sire of Avoca Black Saint our first Grand Prix horse, with those of Gravanne Rose, dam of Avoca Cardinal.
Eclipse was always destined to be a dressage horse and a successful one she was. Finishing her competition career in 2011 as an FEI and Prix St George horse. She has since moved onto her next stage of life as a mother and is currently a beloved school horse of Avoca Park.
