William was backed by Liane in October 2011, proving very quick to learn. He worked well in the school and started hacking out with some of our older horses. He quickly picked up the basic aids and was jumping a small course after just 3 weeks under saddle – he showed a really natural and careful technique over fences at this early stage.He was then turned away to give him some time to mature. In late 2012 we brought him back into work and he started his eventing career in the spring of 2013. Unfortunately for various circumstances (rider injury, abandonments, etc) he hardly competed at all for the rest of the season. In 2014 he has been able to have a much more productive season so far and has truly excelled! His natural scope with his jumping had ensured he has not been outside the top 5 in BE classes this year, with 2 wins under his belt already in his short career.Click here to see William’s progress
