– together now for 5 years. Purchased Mira from Stud on September 11, 2001 as a green four year old with one dressage day under her belt.
– Originally purchased with the aim of two star eventing, but eventually decided that with work, child, property and husband responsibilities, the extra effort needed to event versus dressage, much easier to do dressage at present!! We may go back to eventing in the future. Mira can definitely jump, and our one attempt at pre-novice showed that. She flew over all the jumps on cross country when I was expecting not to get past the 5 ft high steeple chase fence at no.5!! Now aiming for EFA Prix St George, but extremely happy and satisified with results to date. Starting 2007 at Advanced HRCAV and hoping to begin Medium and Advanced EFA in second half of 2007. Fulfilling goals will depend on riders ability more than the horse!!
