Shutterfly was born on 14th January 1993, sired by Silvio I and out of Famm.

The bay hanovarian gelding (stable name: Petey) is owned by Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum, his current rider, and Octavia Farms, LLC. He was discovered as a six-year-old by Californian-born Meredith.

Meredith, who now rides for Germany, rode Shutterfly to victory in the Grand Prix at Olympia in 2003 and in 2004, they took second place at the Rolex FEI World Cup Finals in Milan.

They were omitted from Germany’s Olympic team for the Athens Games following a failed a dope test, but Meredith was later cleared by the Judicial Committee of the International Equestrian Federation following a dispute over procedure.

A year later, the pair won the Grand Prix at Aachen. The same year also saw them win the World Cup Finals for the first time in Las Vegas, a performance Shutterfly repeated three years later when he took the title in Gothenberg.
