Shamwari sold to USA
9 January, 2014
Shamwari has now left my yard to join top international rider Boyd Martin, in the US. It was a very difficult and emotional decision to sell Shamwari, as he is a horse that made many of my dreams come true. I was very happy when Boyd showed an interest for him as I really respect him as a rider and a person and I’m sure he will take great care of Shamwari. With Shamwari, I won a Team Silver at the European Championships in Sweden last summer as well as a fourth Team and 20th individual placing at the Olympic Games in London 2012. Together we got several placings in *** around Europe among them my first placing in *** in Burnham Market 2011 where we finished 2nd. I am selling Shamwari as my father have been investing in a lot of great horses of which I had the pleasure to produce to *** or ****. The idea was and always is to produce these horses and sell them at a good age when they have reached top level. We are now looking to invest in the next generation of horses to produce.
”Thanks Shamwari for all the awesome moments and you will truly be missed!”
