    I have a mare with a killer bascule with a kick behind (love her tail flip). As a result, I leave the bigger jumps to our trainer. :-) Her mother, who I competed in lower level eventing, was the...

    I remember him well. A horse that made me all starry-eyed watching him and Kerry in the Olympics. I was very new to the sport at that time. Lovely horse!!!
