    Default New Horse for Beezie Madden

    BMC van Grunsven Simon (hopefully just 'Simon' from now on!) has been sold to Beezie Madden according to this link:

    Very exciting. It should be interesting to see them together.

    Simon is on the top of the WBFSH/FEI Ranking
    Beezie Madden and Simon will certainly be a great asset for the USA at the 2012 Olympic games.

    I saw that horse win the CN Int'l live a couple years ago. Hopefully it will go as well for Beezie as it did for Jeroen!

    Wonderful news! He looks just Beezie's type, too, quick and light and scopey. Thanks to Abigail Wexner for supporting the team and Beezie with this purchase. Without owners like her our team could not be where it is.

    Is he by the same Mr. Blue that Elise Haas had back in the '90s? That was a really nice horse.

    Seems to be a 1999 model, so he's in the prime of his career.

    Yes, he's by the same Mr Blue. There are quite a few Mr Blues coming up through the ranks including Susan Grange's Azzaro (Mr Blue/Lys de Darmen/Pik Bauer)

    Yes, thank you, AGAIN, Mrs. Wexner. Her support for Beezie, and by extension our international team is simply incredible.
