The Knights End Farm Horses

Bindro T (Dino)

Stable name Baldino, or Dino for short, he is more affectionately known as “The Boy Wonder”. Dino is a 13 year old KWPN by Obelisk x Negro who stands at 17.1hh. Owned by Evelyn, she purchased him from Ryan Shannon at Shannon Equestrian as an unbacked 3 year old. Dino started his dressage career as a 5 year old in young horse classes, qualifying through to the Moloh National Badminton Young Dressage Horse of the Future Final, where he was placed equal 14th alongside Michael Eilberg and Woodlander Wavavoom.

He has achieved numerous wins at every level with scores of over 70%. Qualification to the Area Festival Finals at Novice, Elementary, Medium, and Advanced Medium, Regional qualification at all levels, and he has taken Evelyn to both the Winter Championships and Summer National Championships several times in the 7 years they have been competing together. In 2012 he was crowned the Petplan Equine Novice Restricted Champion with a score of 71.77% at the Winter Dressage Championships, he also achieved 8th place at the Summer Nationals in the same year.

During 2014 Evelyn offered the ride on Dino to a very talented Grade III Para rider and friend Bert Sheffield. Bert took Dino to Europe and had several fantastic placings at International level, finishing their partnership with competing at the World Equestrian Games in Normandy. At WEG Bert and Dino (representing Canada) went on to place 8th in the Team Competition, 6th Individually, and then finished the event by placing 4th in the Freestyle! A huge achievement for a combination that had only been together for 6 months!

After WEG Evelyn once again had the ride on the boy wonder and in 2015 they won their Regional Championships at Elementary, gaining their place for the Summer National Championships. In the same year they won their Petplan Equine Advanced Medium Area Festival, after only 3 tests at this level. During 2016 they competed at the Winter Championships placing 10th in the Petplan Equine Medium Open and 16th in the Petplan Equine Advanced Medium.

In 2017 Dino gained his PSG status and they went on to competing at small tour level at the beginning of this year, already qualifying for the Area Festivals and Hickstead’s Dressage Masters. They have been competing at small tour and training for big tour ever since.

Treliver Dynamique (Datum)

Datum is a 8 year old British bred Warmblood owned by Evelyn’s mum Julie. He was purchased from Gill Clothier at Treliver Stud as a foal, and he is a Palomino just like his father Treliver Decanter. He’s out of a Walt Disney bred mare, Waroness, who herself sadly passed away in 2019. So far he has proven to enjoy working under saddle and he is very much a “mini me” of his dad Derrick. He has been a bit of  work in progress over the years, but Evelyn adores him all the same, she just wishes he would stop trying to self harm quite so much!

Fingers crossed he will be out on the competition circuit during 2020.

Nadal SPM (Rafa)

 

Nadal SPM or Rafa to his friends is a pure bred Lusitano 2 year old dun colt. Evelyn purchased him in August 2019 from Sophie Marie Gooding of Elite Spanish Horses, after falling in love with Sophie’s updates of him online. This is Evelyn’s first Iberian, but she is very excited about his future. He is quite simply the cutest and cheekiest thing on the yard, and he will be spending his time as a lawn mower (a role he takes very seriously) until the end of 2020, when he will start to be produced under saddle.

He will be aimed at the Lusitano breed show in 2020, and at the MCI classes as a 4 year old.
