It has been quite the year for Stephen Bradley and his team! Charlotte Harris’ Lunetta and Catapult both made the successful move-up to Preliminary and the Hoffman’s Gambler’s Choice, an off-the-track Thoroughbred proved that he definitely has the talent to campaign at the upper-levels.
Gambler’s Choice had an impressive fifth place finish in the Preliminary Horse division at the Morven Park Horse Trials and went on to finish out his season with a third place at the Virginia Horse Trials in the Preliminary Horse division.
Charlotte Harris’ beautiful mare, Lunetta, finished her first Preliminary at the Maryland Horse Trials in a competitive Open Preliminary division in fourth place. Stephen went on to ride her at the Virginia Horse Trials, but had to take her HC because of a mix-up but nevertheless had an educational weekend.
Catapult, also owned by Charlotte Harris, had two successful runs at Preliminary to finish up his fall season. His dressage continues to improve each time he goes out and he continues to get bolder out on the cross-country. We are so excited for their future in the sport! Be sure to follow us on Facebook for updates with our horses and the team!
With winter upon us, now is the perfect time to sharpen your stadium and dressage skills so that you and your horse can go into the spring season with confidence. Make sure to check Stephen’s clinic calendar for dates!
Check out this awesome video of Stephen’s working students working on an exercise that helps to broaden their attention. This would be a fun one to try at home!
