The 2019 Event season for Ben Leathers and his competition horses is well underway. With a good run of competitions throughout the spring, both Kauto Cyreo and Con Rico are really coming together this year.
Kauto Cyreo (owner – Ben Leathers) Kauto started the season at a new venue for us at Poplar Park. He had a good dressage and double clear to come home in 8th in the Novice. Moving on to completing Portman Novice, then another completion at CCI2* at Bicton following on to completing the CCI2*L at Houghton Hall in May. He will be out at Farley Hall in June and stepping up to Intermediate in July at Aston-Le-Walls in July.
Con Rico (owner – Ben Leathers) Rico has been stepped up to Novice now and is coming on well. He joined Kauto Cyreo at Poplar Park to have a double clear and coming 10th. He then went on to complete at Novice at Bovington, Chilham Castle & Firle. He will continue gaining the experience needed with a Novice run at BCA in June and I hope to take him to Bicton Int in October for a CCI2*-S.
2018 was a testing year with the shoulder injury in June taking me out for two months. Putting this behind me, this season is looking like taking the horses up the levels and enjoying some new venues through the year.
