Puttin on the Ritz – “Benny”
- 2005 Holsteiner/Hanoverian cross
- By CarlsonOwned by Klavans Family
I started competing Benny in 2010 to see if he would enjoy the world of eventing, with the end goal to sell him into a suitable home. Thus far that plan has changed as he has become an integral part of my career and my string of top competition horses, as his love and natural ability for this sport was evident from the start. Benny is a very intelligent horse with a lot of scope and confidence in the show jumping arena and natural talent and willingness to learn about the dressage and cross country. He has surpassed my expectations and continues to improve and learn as one of my top upper level horses.
His owners Alyssa, Nancy and Dick Klavans are great friends of ours and they have been a huge asset to our team. Benny completed the CCI** at Fair Hill International in 2016 and I look forward to many more exciting adventures with this family and great horse who is coming into his own at the 2 star level!
