WOW Saddles sponsored Kitty King reigns at Burghley

Ceylor L.A.N. ridden by WOW Saddles sponsored Kitty King, is this year’s winner of the five-year-old section of the Dubarry Burghley Young Event Horse final.

The pair gained the top marks for jumping 38/40 from judges Alain Storme (BEL) and Matthew Lanni and 9/10 for suitability and potential from former Irish Olympic team member Eric Horgan and were convincing winners heading the class by four marks.

Kitty, who has been in strong form this season with former young horse champions Zidante and Persimmon, found Ceylor almost by accident as she just happened to be in Sussex and looked in Horse & Hound to see if there were any young horses for sale in the area. “He was too big and too expensive but I was in Sussex and so was he,” said Kitty.

The good-looking KWPN gelding is by Veron (deceased) a KWPN stallion by the Quidam de Revel son Quite Easy. “He is not really my size as he is tall but he is a lovely quality horse and one to produce for the future,” said Kitty, who has sold three legs to a small syndicate of owners.
