FLO - 17yr old 16.1hh Thoroughbred Mare by Alflora out of Orphan Annie.23BE points, £1434 BS winnings. We broke Flo as 3yr old and even then she had a fantastic attitude, we bought her as a four year old. She is such a brilliant horse who can and will do anything you ask of her. We have been placed many times at Novice level eventing and jumped double clear at at CCI1*, she has been placed at both Gatcombe & Rockingham International intermediate, we have showjumped upto 1.20m and she is the first horse I have won over a £1000 on. The eventing has become so expensive I decided not to event her this season but I have had lots of fun hunting over some of the biggest hedges, been team chasing and in the last couple of years Hannah Slater has taken over the competitive reins, Flo has certainly tested her but they make a great team now and have been placed up to 1.05m SJ and gone well 1m eventing. Unfortunately after a great start to the season at Offchurch Bury Flo seems to be getting a lot stiffer and is intermittently lame but after several trips to the vets to be scanned and xrayed we are not further forwards, she has been an amazing horse for us and owes us nothing so we have taken the really tough decision to retire her.
