Harrisburg, Pa. – Oct. 15
Few riders were interested in Bacardi when he was for sale as a skinny 4-year-old gelding that spooked at his own shadow in 2010. Not Peter Pletcher, not Kelley Farmer, not even amateurs who complained of the now 7-year-old’s flat feet.
But it was love at first sight for Havens Schatt. Her intuition paid off as she earned the first year green championship and the grand green championship at the Pennsylvania National Horse Show aboard Caroline Moran’s Dutch Warmblood gelding.
