    Five things you didn’t know…

    1 JP was originally bought by Christian Landolt as an eventer, but wasn’t bold enough across country.

    2 He loves his food and is always thinking of his tummy. He even eats bananas whole as he’s too impatient for Natasha to peel them.

    3 He hates his ears being touched, especially if he needs fly spray applying.

    4 His secret weapon is his Cyclo-ssage rug — Natasha always puts it on before she rides him.

    5 In the stable he is named after Pope John Paul II, as he is from Poland as well.
