Ruth Edge’s seven-year-old gelding Zero has been sold to Somerset-based dressage rider Claire Poole.

Ruth said she “could not disclose” the fee, but it is rumoured to be a six-figure sum.

He was sold shortly after the Nationals (15-18 September) and is now in Somerset.

“He went really well in the prix st georges. So well that three people asked to buy him,” Ruth told H&H on Monday (12 December).

“I’ve heard that they are getting on very well. I orginally bought Zero and Shadowfax to sell on, but I loved them both so much I kept them!

“I will miss Zero a lot. He is probably my favourite horse I’ve ever had – he’s got such a fun personality, he’s so willing and talented and loves his job. He had everything for me, but life goes on. He’s got a lovely home with Claire and hopefully they will be really successful together.”
