Past Horses

EVERGEM PERFECTION – 4* Eventer

“Ollie” is a 16.3hh, Warmblood Gelding owned by Gabby and Rebecca Zamel. He has been a member of the team for 5 years and has played an integral part in shaping Andrew’s career.

GUEST OF HONOUR – 4* Eventer

“Reuben” is a 17hh, Warmblood X Thoroughbred Gelding who played the biggest part in shaping Andrew to be the rider he is today.
