|Wynnie at Fair Hill. GRC Photo|
Eowyn, or "Wynnie", is a talented five-year-old mare with excellent breeding who has had a brilliant start to her Eventing career. Wynnie just competed at the Fair Hill Horse Trials in the Novice Horse division finishing on her dressage score of 31. She is offered at a great price and will be moving up to Training at her next event in a few weeks. Wynnie is the sister to SBF Cortez who just placed 2nd in his second Intermediate competition at the Millbrook Horse Trials (NY) two weeks ago.
She is the ideal horse for an amateur or young rider looking to be extremely competitive in whatever event they enter. Wynnie is a lovely, soft mover and is extremely rideable and trainable for the dressage consistently receiving in the 20’s and low 30’s in dressage; she received a 25.8 at her first event. She is a scopey, careful jumper with a lovely gallop that only needs to be ridden in the softest of snaffles.

The first leg of our journey to France has begun! At 4:00 this morning, we departed from training camp at Gladstone headed for JFK airport. The team flying with the horses includes myself, Emma (Phillip's Groom), Susan Johns (Team Veterinarian) and Richard Picken (Professional Flying Groom).
We are scheduled to depart with the eight squad horses and alternates at 10:00 am today, and will land in Liege, Belgium where we will meet the other grooms. We will ship to Chantilly late tonight, where we will be based in France until we head to the WEG venue in Normandy.
Shammy and Oscar are doing very well, they are both great travellers and have flown before, so the trip should go very smoothly for them.
We will keep you posted on our travel and training as the trip progresses!

Brewster and William Street had their final run at prelim and I’m confident about both of them taking the next step up to Intermediate in a couple of weeks.
