Monday Video from CLM DWN: Through the Ears of a “Ginger Unicorn”

Andrew Hoy seems to be having the time of his life aboard Vassily de Lassos, or as Andrew has recently called him, his “ginger unicorn.” Over the weekend, the pair finished third overall in the CCI4*-S at Luhmühlen in Germany thanks to another completion on their dressage score. Fly around cross country with them courtesy of Andrew’s trusty hat cam!

As a 9-year-old, Vassily de Lassos was Andrews’s mount for the World Equestrian Games in Tryon representing Team Australia and finishing in fourth place individually — a very impressive finish for a young horse on the world stage. Andrew and Vassily de Lassos were one of four pairs to finish on their dressage score (FOD) at the WEG. Since the WEG, Vassily de Lassos, owned by Paula and David Evans, has now achieved an FOD in four out of his six starts at the four-star level. That consistency has seen the now 11-year-old Anglo Arab gelding finish no lower than 6th place at any of those events.

We know Andrew has his sights on Tokyo 2020, ahem, 2021 with this exciting horse and we look forward to going along for the ride!
