Aluinn Wyatt, (HK’s Danny Boy X Alladin’s Star Song) 15 year old gelding 14.1 h, had an amazing show season showing at the USA Working Equitation Licensed shows at the Intro level.
Wyatt, and his owner/rider Barb Sullivan from Woodbine Maryland ended the year with four Championships including the 2022 USAWE Eastern Zone Championship show and two Reserve Champions! Wyatt was Champion or Reserve Champion at every show.
The pair ended the year in 4th place in the National standings for Intro Amateur riders out of 150 horses. Their regional rankings placed them 1st in Region 6 and 1 in Region 7. They are also the top Connemara in Working Equitation.
Barb reflects, “None of this would be possible without the amazing support of my husband who takes care of the farm and animals while I travel. And my daughter, Shannen who encourages me and tells me I can do it!!”
Barb appreciates her pony, “To my amazing pony – I would be lost without you. You truly are a once in a lifetime pony.”
Wyatt has had the last 13 weeks off while Barb recovered from surgery. The duo’s 2023 journey started at the end of February with their first ride of the year, lots of work to do . . . but slow and steady wins the race. Barb purchased Wyatt in 2016 and enjoyed trail riding until she found Working Equitation and began showing in 2021.
