Thursday Video from Ecovet: Happy Retirement, Shannondale Titan!
The partnership of Australian eventer Bill Levitt and Shannondale Titan is a pretty epic one, tracing all the way back to 2011. Since then they’ve ticked all the big “B” boxes together: Badminton, Belton, Bramham, Blenheim, Burnham Market, Blair Castle, Burnham Market, Barbury Castle … and a few nbd non-“B” events too, like the 2016 WEG in Normandy. (Seriously though … WHY SO MANY “B”s?!
I digress. In the past couple years, this old married couple has become a staple of the Event Rider Masters series — and by staple, I mean they’ve completed a whopping 11 ERM CCI4*-S events, finishing in the top 10 in half of them. Millstreet would prove the swan son for “Alfie,” unfortunately, as Bill announced the 16-year-old Irish Sport Horse’s retirement earlier this month.
A retirement well earned, sir. Cheers to you, Alfie! And thanks to ERM for sharing this tribute.
Ecovet fly spray creates a vapor barrier around your horse that confuses and overwhelms an insect’s normal directional ability. Thanks to this Ecovet barrier, the insect is unable to locate your horse as its next victim. Watch Ecovet in action: http://bit.ly/ecovetvideo
