Matt came over to the UK from Marion Hughes’ yard, where he was bred and pure show jumped for several seasons.
Kate took over the reins and Matt got enough cross country training under his belt at the very end of 2018 to successfully run around the final event of the season. Matt is another horse who progressed extensively through 2019, having gone from BE90 level to CCI-S3* level with ease; he jumped double clear and placed at Novice level, he finished just outside the rosettes at his first International, Burgham CCI-S2*, and easily upgraded to Intermediate level. Despite his little experience, he placed in the top 20 at the National 7YO Championships and successfully completed his first three day event to round the 2019 season off.
Having placed at his first Intermediate run of 2020 and had a great run around his first Advanced, this genuine horse will look towards an autumn CCI-L3* to round off his 2020 season.
He seems to be a real natural on the cross country, and we are very excited to see what can be achieved over the coming years.
