I think I’m becoming far too attached to this fancy stallion that Michael has been campaigning. A 9-year-old Trakehner stallion, Michael has been working through some confidence issues with Halimey since picking up the ride. The pair is contesting their first CCI2* together, and they are coming off a great finish in the CIC2* at Carolina International, where they finished second.
Michael and Halimey won the dressage in the CCI2* at Ocala decisively, scoring a 39.1 to move into the lead ahead of Leslie Law and Tout de Suite. My favorite part about this dressage test? Halimey’s floppy ears and the way he simply seems to be enjoying what he is doing.
