In 2012 Wellington was the #3 USDF Materiale Horse of the Year. Though he has only shown through Second Level, Wellington is a SUPER mover with 3 years professional training under Grand Prix trainer/rider Eva Oldenbroek, and is solidly schooling all of the movements for several levels higher. He qualified easily for both SWDF and GAIG Regional Finals each year since he was a 3 y/o. Wellington was not shown since (2015/2016) because he had a slight tear in a stifle cartilage which has been successfully treated with stem cell therapy. Wellington is totally sound and is being ridden regularly. He will go back in the show ring soon.
