Leo is a huge character on the yard and is always the first to have his head over the door in the morning.

Aaron started Leo’s career. Despite proving tricky as a young horse, Aaron put a lot of hard work into him and he is now an established Advanced level horse. We were all delighted when he completed Blenheim CCI3* in 2014, particularly with a cracking clear showjumping on the final day.

You would never find a horse that tries harder or loves his job more, if he’s not going to an event you have to try and sneak out with the lorry so he doesn’t realise you’re going without him!
