We loved watching Erika Nesler rocking around the American Eventing Championships Beginner Novice cross country course on Corgi Hill Benson, a 6-year-old Norwegian Fjord (MVF Erlend—Corgi Hill Brynja) owned by Lisa Samuel. The pair turned in a double-clear round and turned a few heads in the process as well, no doubt!
“Love this Fjord pony!,” Erika wrote on her Facebook page yesterday. “Corgi Hill Benson, owned by Lisa Samuel, has introduced me to a whole knew groups of eventers and horse enthusiasts … they’re our Fjord Family. Whether it’s lead line lessons, teaching youngsters to jump, trotting his mother around USDF tests or ‘galloping’ XC this little pony has touched many, many hearts. Love him! And I’m super thankful for the family he’s introduced us to.”
The Chronicle of the Horse had a great write-up on their AEC adventure — you can check it out here.
Erika is competing in the Doug and Cindy Howe’s Right Above It in the Plantation Field CIC2* this weekend, and we wish them the best!
