We have been looking for a second competition horse for quite a while now.
When competing at this level you really need a back up horse,
God forbid anything should go wrong with your competition horse.
But being an Olympic year plus just normal day to day things that need
to be done we, Chris and I, have been to busy to be actively looking.
So Chris had put the word out that if anyone found anything interesting
please to let us know. We had been to see some very nice horses but
there was never the click. Until Matty Marissink sent a video through to Chris.
I think within 5 minutes we both knew we had found the horse that we had
been looking for!
Lord Louis came to us in May 2012, he is a 7 year old Westphalian gelding,
chestnut with four white legs which drives my trainer, Chris mad because
he thinks they are bad luck!
Luckily on the other side of the scale I have my dad who’s best horse he ever
rode was a chestnut with four white legs and it is still to this day my dad’s
He is an absolute pleasure this horse, he has the sweetest kindest temperament
and a load of work ethic. We still have a lot to learn but if we get it right,
we will fly!!!
