Lance is developing purely in Dressage. He is very talented, has the personality of a labrador retriever: until he thinks he thinks something is hard or scary! He is a challenge, but has been entirely worth the effort. Lance started life as jumper, but Dressage has proven to be his calling. Big goals for this one's Dressage career!
Douggy is starting his Eventing career, but is so talented and agreeable that he could even end up in Dressage, or the Jumpers, as well. He moves, he jumps, and he is incredibly self possessed. Bright future for this one!
Bob has campaigned thru Prelim and is aimed as Pippa's next upper level eventer. He has super paces, a huge gallop, loads of scope, and loads of opinions! He has been with Pippa since the end of his 5yo year. High hopes for Bob!

Quite simply, my horse of a lifetime. The reason I became a professional, he gave me all my exposure to the top of the sport and an absolute freak of a jumper. Ribbo was a template for a horse best suited to the old days of long-format Eventing. Neither his conformation, nor his temperament, aided him in the pursuit of dressage excellence, and that's putting it mildly! He was a running and jumping “freak of nature“, and it took many years to figure out how to maximize those qualities which can be at odds with today's sport. He was, however, "a Magician with his knees" and despite his size and propensity for speed, so careful and catlike that today's technical jumping efforts were not an issue. (8 Photos)
