Alta in 2013 enjoying the evening sunshine.
Click here too see my first ride on Alta at Mushill Farm.
Today was a truly exciting day.
Windyridge Alta came home after an educational seven weeks of breaking with the excellent Will and Ginnie Turnbull at Tanglewood Farm Stables.
Alta is unbelievably special to us, as she is the first foal from my first event horse Delphi's (Quixotic) following her retirement in 2011.
Delphi retired with Junior European Gold Medals, top ten results at Three Star, a top twenty placing at Four Star and the Best British Mare title at Badminton to her name. She is ranked amongst the top twenty best event mares of all time.
For us Alta is the icing on top.
