Yes, Andrew Nicholson does in fact ride at other levels other than
ass-kicking three and four-star! We found some footage of Andrew competing his striking palomino gelding Moonshine Beach Boy in the Novice (British Eventing’s equivalent of our Preliminary) section at Dauntsey Park this weekend. Andrew piloted the horse to a sixth-place finish.
Moonshine Beach Boy is by Grafham Stud’s cremello part-bred Arabian stallion Moonshine Pharo and out of Golden Legend, a daughter of the Trakehner stallion Novelice. At 5 years old, he just started his eventing career this year and should be a fun, colorful horse to watch in the future.
