Hi Liz

We bought Wilfret from you last Autumn (2006) and thought we should update
you on how he is doing.
We backed him Christmas 2006 and Alastair has only had time to ride at the
weekends and lessons every 3 weeks or so.  But now with a new trainer and
more regular lessons these past few months.

He went to his first ever dressage competition on Sunday 16 December 2007
(Trailblazers) and won both classes with 68% in Prelim 7 and then 70.41% in
Prelim 18.  We are delighted.

Boy can he jump too and loves it!  Weekend before last, he jumped a narrow
log with no wings etc, planks and saw and jumped fillers for the first time
in his lesson and last weekend he jumped them all again and a water tray as
well!

He is an angel to handle and you can do anything with him.  He is totally
relaxed about us clipping him and was from the first time and great with the
farrier.  His feet are so strong and such good shape, he has remained bare
foot since we got him.  He travels in the trailer on his own or with Karino
very happily and eats from the minute he gets in, to the time he gets out!

People always ask us where we got Wilfret from and we always recommend you
and if we did ever want another horse, we would certainly come to you 1st.

He has his own website where pictures and video clips of his latest
achievements can be seen!

HI Liz

We took Wilfret to his first Affiliated Novice yesterday and WON the class overall with 69.17% !!He got 64.48% in the second class too. Overall very pleased with him ……….again. All in very strong windswhich didnt bother hinm at all. He is really growing and filling out - every time we go out with him someone comments on how he has grown and filled out ! He is  at least 16.3 now and filled and muscled to match! He is absolutely superb to do anything with and a joy to ride every time.

Thanks
