United Kingdom – May 19, 2015 – Olympic Gold Medalist Laura Kraut has a knack for finding talent. Nearly two years ago, Cherry Knoll Farm’s Constable joined her impressive line of horses, moving through the ranks as a 7-year-old and 8-year-old jumper. Today, he has become one of Kraut’s most consistent mounts, and the chestnut gelding continues to impress with each passing show.
During the Royal Windsor Horse Show, Constable did not disappoint.
He went up against a field of 29 competitors to take the fourth place finish during the Bahrain Pearl Stakes 1.50m CSI3*. The pair put in two clear rounds, and broke the beam with a speedy jump-off in 45.36 seconds.
“I am really pleased with how he has matured, and how he has been going,” Kraut said. “He has become so consistent and continues to show his potential to go to the highest level of the sport.”
The Royal Windsor Horse Show also brought a momentous occasion for Kraut, as well as for her team of owners, friends and family when she was introduced to Queen Elizabeth II in front of a packed crowd. She was presented with the King’s Cup for her top placing with Nouvelle, owned by the Evita Group, in the Kingdom of Bahrain Stakes for the King’s Cup 1.60m CSI3*.
Kraut and her team will travel to Rome for the 83rd Piazza di Siena Horse Show. She is expected to show Cedric, owned by Cherry Knoll Farm.
