We’re delighted to support Caitlin in her dressage career. Caitlin chalked up a long list of achievements with her handsome horse Rosari Royal Gem (pictured), and proved herself able to compete with the countries top professional riders and at that time was the youngest rider to ride Grand Prix in New Zealand. She is now riding youngster GC Lucius.

GC Lucius – Lorenzo

This young horse is starting out beautifully, winning three of their four tests at the Auckland Manukau Amateur and U25 Champs. With three scores over 70% on his first ever Novice start, he made his owner Liz Farrell very proud!
