minnie-fancyBenita found Minnie while working in England for Dassett Eventing. She was originally sourced in Ireland by Richard Sheane of Cooley Sport Horses and then made the trip to England to Kate Rocher-Smith’s Dassett Eventing where Benita met her. Minnie is a firecracker of a mare and she loves her job. She had a great start in England and is bold beyond her years.

Benita and Minnie have successfully made the move up through the CCI* level and we were lucky enough to have Tim Bourke of Bourke Eventing do some riding for us this fall while Benita focused on her other mounts. Tim successfully moved Minnie up to the CIC2* level finishing 10th at the CIC2* at VAHT in October. Benita has taken back the reins and is looking forward to 2017 with Minnie!
