McLain Ward: Victorious with New Horse

At the Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington McLain Ward started with a new horse like many others. The twelve weeks of events are good for getting the horses used to big events. McLain Ward and his new ride Hija van Strokapelleken by Calido I, a 11-year-old Belgian mare had a great debut, in which they won a 1,45m showjumping competition ahead of Irish Kevin Babington with Double O Seven. Previously the mare was ridden by Nayel Nassar as well as Penelope Leprevost and Roger-Yves Bost.
