Renkum Capitano Starts His 2019 With a Win

Thrilled to bits with my cheeky chap Capitano, he has had all winter off. He has been turned out in the 25 acres with his brother Chief. They have had so much fun together and also been in trouble, on one occasion almost getting into our neighbours chicken pens!!

So his 2019 debut outing was to the prestigious Hartpury Arena, he hadn’t been anywhere schooling other than at home so we planned on just nice schooling round.

Once he had done a super clear in the first round I couldn’t help myself and pushed him on a little bit on a few corners and he responded brilliantly, he was on springs. He finished with the fastest clear round to win the class.

My other pocket rocket Ruby Tuesday then went in the next class and finished in 3rd place. I was so pleased with them both, we came home with almost £50 prize money, clever ponies.

We will be beginning with Eventing season soon and have all our fingers crossed for a really good year.
