Silva Dollar, the 100-mile endurance horse has been approved by the Arab Horse Society as a premium stallion.

Owned by Susan Hawes, who has represented Britain at international level endurance, the horse finished seventh in the 100-mile class in last year’s White Rose ride.

“This seal of approval from the Arab Horse Society reflects the leading role played by the Arab horse in endurance, Britain’s fastest growing equestrian sport,” said Susan Hawes.
