We are pleased to announce that Bo has a new pilot. Dom Schramm is a refreshing, bold and dynamic rider and this partnership is off to a great start! Top placings at Poplar Place, Pinetop and Southern Pines and a 4th place finish at the Virginia International CCI* capped off the 2013 spring season. Dom and Bo had a successful fall, with a top ten placing at Richland Park CIC **, a career best dressage score and double clear show jumping round (one of ten out of seventy competitors!) to complete the Plantation Field International CIC** and a completion at the Fair Hill International CCI**. Bo and Dom came out swinging in 2014, completing Advanced successfully at both Pinetop Advanced HT and the Carolina International CIC and HT. The Carolina XC track was recognized as being one of the tougher courses around. Not only did our dynamic duo jump clean, but the came in just over the time allowed with little effort! In early May Dom and Bo tackled the tough track at Jersey Fresh, putting in one of the very few double clear show jumping rounds and marching around the CIC*** to complete with a qualifiying score at their first three star!
An unfortunate infection sidelined the War Horse over the summer and put paid to the 2014 season, but Bo is back in work and doing well. Looking forward to 2015!
Bru and Manny finished their spring season with a fourth place finish at the Heart of the Carolinas Three Day Event. A successful move up to training level in June at the CBES Lumber River Horse Trials, July netted them a fourth place finish at the level. Unfortunately Bru suffered a bad experience with a farrier (no longer employed by us) and has missed the fall season. We are happy to report he is sound, fiesty, and back in work. He will head south in December for some face time with Dom Schramm to prep for the spring season.
