Adsagsona Farm is the home of Registered Irish Draught (Class 1 ID) stallion, K.E.C. Double Diamond (aka Oisin). Born in 1996, Oisin is by Glidawn Diamond (RID) out of Ballyard Katie (RID). Oisin stands 16.3 hh and has 10.25 inches of bone. Trained and ridden by Jutta Heinsohn through 2010, now retired.
Historically the Registered Irish Draught is best known for its ability to produce an excellent cross for fox-hunting, jumping and eventing. We, personally, know the RID as a versatile horse used for all those aforementioned sports plus driving, pleasure, and dressage.
Oisin is an outstanding example of the Irish Draught in North America. Excellent bone, character, and conformation. [Inspector]
In his retirement, Oisin thoroughly enjoys days under grand live oaks, surveying his herd (which encompasses and equine within his view, regardless of whom they are actually owned by), and breeding those outstanding mares on his annual book.
Oisin’s progeny are SO easy to start under saddle. I have started two sons and one grandson, and they are all 9’s in character and ease of starting! [California owner in her 60’s]
In 2001, Jutta Heinsohn purchased and imported K.E.C. Double Diamond RID (Oisin) from Bill and Anna Kennedy of Tralee, County Kerry, Ireland as her personal riding horse (he remains the special man in her life today). In 2008 we had the distinct pleasure of hosting Bill, Anna and their son Cormac Kennedy on their recent visit to Florida and the Ocala area where they had the opportunity to reintroduce themselves to Oisin and the strapping fully-developed purebred athlete he had become.
Bill and Anna were thrilled with the way Oisin had developed and really enjoyed watching him work. Bill seemed particularly pleased with his work ethic around mares and other stallion distractions.
When he works, he is very focused and it’s obvious he is happy! [Bill Kennedy]
