As a yearling, Hevans EV Catorrius won 6/11 classes, 4/11 placings, was awarded 4 Championships, 1 Reserve and 1 Supreme. 2014 would require a lot to live up to that! He is a two year old now and with him being so much stronger in body and mind it has been my fear would I be able to achieve the same or better?
Our trip to Royal Bath and West has slightly removed a little of the pressure! He was calm, still screaming at the mares but we were in control. He stood for the judge, his show was perfect and his patience in the line-up was achieved with a handful of grass!
Winning the amalgamated class of stallion, mare or gelding 4 years and over, with colt, filly or gelding 2 or 3 years old with part bred any age, any sex won us 1st place and Champion.
We still have a great season ahead but to win the first Championship is a huge relief and one under the belt!
