Stallion returns to victory after four-year break due to injuries from jumping off lorry *H&H Plus*

  • An 11-year-old stallion steps up for Anna Power when making a winning return to competition, while Irishman Richard Howley claims grand prix honours in the competitive 1.45m finale at the CSI2* Autumn Mediterranean Equestrian Tour (MET), Oliva Nova, Spain

    Anna Power’s 11-year-old stallion Tahiclaud ended his comeback tour by taking his first-ever win in a very competitive 1.45m one-star bronze tour final (pictured).

    Anna has owned the son of Kashmir Van Schuttershof since he was five but he had four years off competing after he jumped from the top of the lorry ramp as a seven-year-old and picked up a number of injuries. He has spent the intervening time as the “family pet”, with Anna’s dad often caring for him at home.

    “It’s been really nice for everyone that’s involved with me and understands where he has come from,” she said.
