Second half 2010

Returned talented young rider to eventing after a two-year break. Achieved excellent results:

December 2010 – Pre-Novice 3DE, finished on their dressage score and 14th in a competitive field.

November 2010 – Pre-Novice Championship:

  • 5th after dressage (65%)
  • Fastest time of day cross country but had only cross country error since he came to us when he missed the line to a corner in trees for a silly '20'.
  • Clear show jumping to still finish 13th out of 29 starters. Would have finished third without cross country error.

November 2010 – Placed second at Pre-Novice Horse Trial.

  • Beaten at Pre-Novice by only the almost 'unbeatable' Clifton Signature, who had top scored at each of his previous five starts!
    • Dressage score 68.5%.
    • Finished on dressage score with 31.5 penalties.
    • Only two marks behind Clifton Signature.
    • This was a young rider's first time ever of achieving cross country optimum time, despite it being a very hilly course.
    • Places second out of 26 starters.

The first half of 2010 had a very conclusive win at Training Horse Trial:

  • Won dressage with 71.5% (28.5 penalties).
  • One of only five clears show jumping.
  • One of only seven to jump clear cross country over tough track.
  • Only horse under time cross country of entire class.
  • Finished on 28.5 penalties, almost half the second placed horse on 50.9 penalties.

Over 2010 has been competed by three different riders with consistently excellent results:

  • Had only one error in total cross country
  • Always scored well in dressage:
    • 73.5% highest
    • Average about 68-70%
  • Jumped clear show jumping nearly every time.

Good careful jump technique. Sharp in-front and adjusts easily. Also great for show hunter.

Snaffle mouth, no martingale, in all three phases.

Will make great Pony Club Champs prospect or eventer for smaller adult.

Eye-catching, elegant, fine boned horse with three nice paces which could also be good all-rounder including dressage, showing and show hunter.

Now very ready to move up to Novice Horse Trials.
