Fanfare - Owner/ Mrs Jane Taylor Rider/ Hannah Jarman
12.3hh Part Welsh Sec B 1986 Bay Gelding
Fanfare or Dragon as he is known at home has done it, he has qualified
for Olympia! This is the icing on the cake for him and his young
jockey Hannah Jarman aged 12. They have achieved so much this year
in the show ring, with Championships and Supreme Championships that
you need more than two hands to count them all. Dragon is a 17yr
old 12.3hh part breed Welsh gelding by the late Rotherwood State
Occasion, he is the most wonderful pony, which we have had the pleasure
of owning for the last 5yrs. He has manners to burn and can turn
his hoof to anything, competing in show jumping and cross country
events and is always in the ribbons.
are all so very proud and can't wait to travel down to Olympia,
good luck Hannah and Dragon!!!!
