GARRYARTHUR

Kingsway Diamond x Kings Palace

1990 172cm Irish Hunter gelding

One of the most special and influential horses in Claudia's career. 'Gary' was an older Grand Prix horse bought as a school master for only $6000 due to his reputation for taking rails. The pair formed a good partnership very quickly and after a week together, placed 3rd in the Young Rider at the 2004 South Island Champs. In the next weeks they put in solid performances to GP including the 1.50 - 60m National Championship and the 2004 Horse of the Year class 1.60m, built by Frank Rothenberger, all while Claudia was 16yrs old and still competing ponies.

The following season after many top placings at GP, Gary was in the top 10 on the National Series mid way through the season before suffering a paddock accident resulting in a badly damaged suspensory ligament and the end of not only the season, but his career at Grand Prix level. 

After successful healing and rehab, Gary was sold on to a lower level home to finish out his career.
