Casperelli (Casper) 3***
Bay, 16.3hh, 12-year-old, Warmblood x TB by Cooperit.
Casper came to Kevin as a four-year-old in Australia and he has produced him ever since, bringing him to the UK as a 2* horse in 2012. He competed at the WEG test event in 2013, finishing 5th, and was part of the Nations Cup bronze medal winning Australian team at Boekelo in 2014. He is a powerhouse although a little quirky, the ultimate athlete and is very talented in all three phases. He will compete at this first 4**** this year at Luhmuhlen and is a serious prospect for the future.
Belcam Bear (Bear) 4****
Brown, 16.2hh, 13-year-old, Warmblood x TB by Cooperit.
Bear has one of the biggest personalities in the yard. He was flown from Australia with Emma in 2012. He is one of the loveliest horses on the Eventing scene. He has had high placings throughout his whole career. In 2016 he and Emma were listed as a potential partnership for the Australian team at Rio. Unfortunately he suffered an injury at Luhmuhlen 4**** during the cross-country after being the highest placed Australian combination after the dressage so their Olympic dreams were set back but he will come out this year and aim at Luhmuhlen CCI****.
Willunga (Will) 2**
Brown, 16.1hh, 10-year-old, ISH by Olympic Lux.

He finished the year in 2016 winning the CCI** at Millstreet. He will step up to 3*** this year and finish with Blenheim 8/9 yr old CIC***. A very exciting horse for the years’ to come.
