Allison Springer’s beloved mount Arthur has put on his dancing shoes once again, making his FEI Prix St Georges debut over the weekend at Bruce’s Field in Aiken. The lovable liver chestnut was diagnosed with an aortic regurgitation just prior to the Kentucky Three-Day Event last year. With running cross country being too risky given the diagnosis, Allison opted to retire Arthur from eventing.
Arthur has since been enjoying a life of luxury with Allison teaching lessons and strutting his stuff during eventing dressage test rides. Now he’s hitting the sandbox at dressage shows and it’s wonderful to see this long-time team competing again. Take a look at their lovely test!
