FOUR FACTS ABOUT FOX­HUNTER WIN­NER EBOLEN­SKY

Horse & Hound - - Show Jumping -

The eight-year-old mare was orig­i­nally pro­duced by Sa­man­tha Jim­mi­son and won the Burgh­ley young event horse fi­nal as a five-year-old.

She likes to bite every­body — “just nipping and play­ing” — other than rider Matt Samp­son: “I could put my arm out in front of her and she wouldn’t bite it,” he said.

She thinks the warm-up is a “bit of a waste of time” and is “al­ways fresh, buck­ing and hav­ing a play and doesn’t con­cen­trate," said Matt. “She finds jump­ing so easy it’s just fun for her rather than in any way like work or a chal­lenge."

By Clin­ton out of a Heart­breaker mare, Ebolen­sky (pic­tured, be­low) was bred by Pa­trice and Frank Koster in Hol­land and was pur­chased as a foal by owner Rachael Evi­son. Other horses from the stud’s stal­lions com­pet­ing at HOYS last week in­cluded An­gelie
