When Jennifer McFall met High Times, he was 5 and had competed in one Young Event Horse class. McFall herself was specializing in training Morgans and hadn’t yet competed at the two-star level. So to say she was expecting that young horse to be her future Rolex Kentucky CCI**** mount? Not likely.
“I thought he was a really, really nice horse,” said McFall, “but I’m not sure I had any ideas of going that far—even in my own life, personally, not just with him. I bought ‘Billy’ as my hobby. I’ve always loved eventing because I grew up in Pony Club, but it was never my main focus.”
