Coti Hausman, of Waxhaw, North Carolina, and her 8-year-old Oldenburg gelding Quantico became eventing partners in 2014. They moved up to Preliminary this year and picked up two wins in a row before making their way to the USEA AEC from their home base in Waxhaw, NC to compete in the Preliminary Horse division.
Quantico, who was bred in the U.S. by Elizabeth Callahan and began his eventing career with Marcia Kulak, has never had a cross country jump penalty, and you can tell from the helmet cam that he is a quick study on course. What we love about this video is how Coti talks to Quantico as they go–praising, guiding and occasionally thanking her horse as they went.
Working together around Captain Mark Phillips’ tough Prelim track at the Tryon International Equestrian Center, Coti and Quantico finished clear with some time. We can’t wait to see more from this pair!
