The horse market is still booming. After recently having sold his horses Calcourt Falklund and Velini, Michael Whitaker now bought 6-year-old Mylord Charthago descendant Valmy de la Lande. According to studforlife.com Whitaker said that he had never in his life ridden such a horse. This year the 6-year-old French horse was placed fifth at the national championships.
Now it has also become clear who will take over the ride of 8-year- old Cyncar, recently sold by Martin Fuchs. American Jessica Springsteen, currently training with Jan Tops and Edwina Alexander-Tops in the Netherlands, is Cyncar’s new rider. Fuchs said about the sale that Cyncar had been one of his hopes for the Olympic Games.
