KING KODA

Horse & Hound - - Team Chasing -

WHEN Sara Cork’s eye­catch­ing coloured part-bred King Koda was di­ag­nosed with quit­tor this sum­mer, the vet said most horses with this in­fec­tion of the col­lat­eral car­ti­lages in the hoof would have to be put down.

How­ever, af­ter spend­ing some qual­ity time in the field with his com­pan­ion pony Dinky, Koda re­cov­ered and is now fly­ing with the in­ter­me­di­ate vic­tors Eter­nal Op­ti­mists.

“He al­ways seems to bounce back from in­jury, so I hoped he’d pull through,” said Sara. “He re­ally wanted to go past Si­mon Coady’s horse to­day, but I held him back as I didn’t want to get shouted at.”
