Where to start to even begin to explain the magnificent Cajun. She came into my life nearly 4 years ago at the age of 14 after I lost my beloved old mare.
Cajun was an open showjumper. I am an eventer. After a bit of a break from the show arena I started reschooling Cajun, this was a challenge in itself as she is older and had to relearn a lot of work as an eventer needs to do elegant dressage, be fearless in the country yet careful enough to do showjumping after all that. Cajun has always had a bit of an attitude problem but with the help of Mare Mix we have been able to keep a lid on her ever swinging mood, typical mare!
Cajun has gone from strength to strength the past 3 years. At her first WP Champs she won the Kenilworth Trophy for the horse/rider combination closest to the optimum time. In 2013 upgraded to 1m eventing – a brilliant achievement for a mare of 18 this year. At her last show she improved her dressage score with over 5%!
Cajun also competes in 1.10m show jumping and Novice dressage in off season but her heart lies in the country – never have I felt a horse with such courage and with the help of Rejuven Mix she feels like an 8 year old again. No one wants to believe that this Pegasus is actually 18, she sure doesn’t behave it!
