Cindy found Louis in Ireland as a four year old and broke him in. Cindy produced him to Grade A as a show jumper, competing at major shows including Horse of the Year show, Wembley and Hickstead on many occasions.
Cindy had always wanted to event, so when she and Tim got married, she decided to start eventing some of her show jumpers and then bring on other younsters to Event.
Louis started Eventing at the age of 11 years old. He quickly went to Advanced and they had such fun competing abroad finishing Leading Lady rider, and competed at all the major Events alongside her other horses, including Badminton and Burghley several times.
Once Louis was retired he was given to Cindy’s working pupil at the time, Kate Ludden to pony club event for a year, and then when he came back Cindy and Tim broke him into harness. Louis pulled 3 different carriages, including a massive farm wagon to pull the whole family! Tim also hunted him with the Blood hounds, so he had a pretty diverse career! He was then Nanny to Emily, Sophie and Oliver’s early riding career!
