Dennis and Bronco
I thought you would be pleased to know that Bronco was selected for the British Junior Team and competed for Great Britain at Addington CDI last weekend. As far as I know he is the first PRE horse to have represented Great Britain internationally. We are all very proud of him."
"Just a line to keep you up to date with the boy´s progress; we call him Blue-Boy. As you know he is being ridden by Dan Hammond, last year´s National Novice Champion, and more recently trained by Carl Hester, the UK´s leading dressage rider on Escapado. He won the Spanish Tour Grand Prix and the Grand Prix Kur. I wondered if you and Juan were there. It would have been nice for Dan, who was also there, to have talked to Juan and you about the boy.
We should have him competing in the next few weeks with a view to qualifying him in Novice and Elementary for the Summer Championships. But the big event will be the Andalusian Championships at Hartpury College on 23/24 August. We might show him in hand, and, of course, compete in the dressage section.
Can I have your Spanish address to send photographs to show his previous owners. We are delighted with him. Carl thinks he is a competitive horse and was a good buy. I just love him. And thank you for finding him for me.
Well, please give my best to Blue´s former owners and I´ll keep you informed as to how we get on."
