Bought at the end of his 4yo, Wilson has impressive jumping blood lines but looks to have the movement and attitude to excel in eventing.
This genuine, athletic young horse has an amazing brain and temperament. Once he learns how to co-ordinate all his loose ability, he will be a serious competitor with a very bright future.
Preparation for the start of Wilson’s eventing career was well under way before we made the decision, as with all of our 5 year old horses, to turn him away for a couple of months to reduce numbers at DE HQ through this Covid-19 pandemic. He came back into work through the summer and placed around an unaffiliated event, scoring in the 20s at his first attempt between the white boards. He was a total star in all three phases!
Wilson took all his outings totally within is stride in 2020, despite his lack of affiliated competitive experience. Wilson is living up to our expectations this season already with multiple placings and we see no reason why this competitive start will not continue as he looks towards Novice level shortly. We are prepared to give this incredibly athletic horse the time he needs to finish growing and develop, but so excited for his future career.
