Success After Retirement

Silistra showed that there can be competitive success for racehorses after retirement when finishing third in a class for retired racehorses at The Kent County Show at Detling.  He was first judged on conformation and was lying 5th, then the judge rode him to assess his adaptation to riding horse and this moved him up to third place, much to the delight of Karen.  He should now go on to Hickstead for a similar competition and then hopefully the Horse Of The Year Show.
