If you’ve taken a look at the Land Rover Kentucky CCI5*-L entry list, you may have noticed a new-ish name, Hazel Shannon. Five-star first timer? Hardly! She’s a double winner at the level, having won Australia’s Adelaide CCI5*-L in 2016 and 2018, and now she and Willingapark Clifford have made the journey to the Bluegrass State to test their skill against our lot. After following this pair a lot online, I’m looking forward to watching them in person!
