ISHD On a Promise, (otherwise known as Capri or Bertha) was bought in Ireland as a 5 year old.

By Kalizan (Bay, born 1992 height 166cm) a Grand Prix Show Jumper now in USA, out of Stay Cool a Grade A Irish Show Jumper mare, who proved to be an incredibly talented speed horse.

Born by Embryo Transfer, and bred by Alison Corbally as part of Irish Sport Horse Development "ISHD Borage" was given Head Stud Book Status.

On a Promise loves jumping, and excelled across country, being very bold and honest. 

The dressage was another matter. Although capable of all advanced movements, and having three beautiful paces, she hated it, and the judges found they were able to use their full range of marks (!) Though she does have 18 British Dressage points!

On a Promise retired sound, catching in foal immediately to Grafenstolz, who looks almost her double.
