Otto, has been a joy to own these past 2 years.
I feel so lucky to be his owner, he is incredibly loving. His hacking issues are 99% redundant he is wonderful to hack out and is often a grandad horse for young or nervous horses. We were extremely privileged to canter around Wincanton race course last year, such a treat and for he first time out he was impeccably behaved, as he has been every time out since. He is an absolute rock in traffic, he is quite nosy but is a true gent. We have been going out and about more and more this year, he has been travelling fine and now just walks straight into the trailer. Ready and keen to go out to a party.
We have successfully been competing in dressage, placed at each event and 2nd and a first in our last two events. just this weekend I took him Sj, double clears at 85 & 90cms. So over the moon with him. We did our first ODE last month clear Sj and clear xc, with just time penalties. This weekend we are off out again to another unaffiliated ODE at Bicton. Fingers crossed.
I feel blessed everyday that he is my horse, he is a wonderful and incredibly handsome boy.
