Oliver Townend & Pepper Anne

PEPPER ANNE
b. m., 16 hands, 11 years, German-bred Westphalian (Pavarotti van de Helle— Hauptstutbuch Silberrose, Sacramento Son), owned by Nina Barbour.

OLIVER TOWNEND (GBR)
age 29, Shropshire, England.

Last year, this pair was fifth in the CIC*** at Tattersalls (Ireland), 16th in the CCI*** at Strzegom (Poland) and 11th in the Blenheim CCI*** (England). This year they won the Burnham Market CIC*** (England).

After some indifferent placings, Ollie has recently started to produce some winning form with this horse. However, this move to four-star level is significant, and Pepper Anne will need all the right answers this week. The rumor that Ollie is a member of the medivac frequent flyer program is totally false, and no responsible journalist would even mention it.
