This Phelps Media video is titled “Meet the U.S. Equestrian Team’s Welcome Shadow,” but I feel like we’ve all gotten to know this special mare quite well over her stellar past year.
Owned by Craig and Gloria Callen and competed by Boyd Martin, the 12-year-old Thoroughbred cross mare enjoyed a super run at the three-star level and made her four-star debut at Pau last fall, where she jumped around cross country clear with just a bit of time and felled one rail in show jumping to finish 13th in a competitive field. Other 2016 highlights included being named Boyd’s reserve mount for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.
The pair’s 2017 is off to a blazing start, having won the $100,000 Land Rover Wellington Eventing Showcase in early February. We look forward to following their continuing success this year!
