One of our 3 Dukes on the yard, Pluto joined the team at beginning of 2015 from Germany. He started his eventing career with Kathryn but due to growing a lot bigger than everyone expected, Giovanni took over the reins in 2016. He’s showing lots of promise and we are excited about his future.

Duke of Champion did not compete in 2020, and competed gently in 2021.
