In July 2010, Chester completed, quite successfully I might add, his first ever Horse Trials!! Leading up to that point, we were not sure if he ever would be able to jump...let alone event, because of an injury he had sustained. It was a long process getting him rehabbed. I remember coming over the last xc fence...but don't remember going through the finish markers because I was in tears!! He. Had. Done IT!!
Chester's goal: to become a confident, HAPPY preliminary horse, compete successfully at that level while throwing in some CCI*'s for good measure. If his rider can grown the necessary body parts to be able to go Intermediate, then it will be done!! There is no limit to what Chester is able to accomplish...I just need to be able to keep up with him.
