10yo 16.2hh Bay Gelding
Took Young Rider Working Pupil to her required CCI* qualifying score at Taupo 3-Day Event National Championships, despite her only having ridden the horse for a few weeks.
Absolute machine cross-country. Brave and safe and with the mileage and attitude to read all types of questions and work them out without needing help from the rider. Would never stop and locks on to technical questions extremely well.
