Jovi joined the team in winter 2014 having previously show jumped in Ireland. He is an exciting horse to have on the yard, having completed his first BE Novice events with several placings. He finished the 2015 season with successful double clears in both his first Intermediate at Gatcombe and the CCI** at Weston Park.
Throughout 2016 Jovi jumped multiple double clears at CIC*** and CCI*** level, including his first CCI*** at Houghton Hall resulting in him finishing n the top 25. Camphire (in Ireland) was Jovi's second CCI*** where he again jumped a double clear to finish 5th!
Throughout 2017 Jovi has continued to gain experience at 3*. Running at Barbury in the CIC*** , jumping another double clear he finished in the top 25, going on then to Camphire again for the CCI*** with a clear xc and unfortunate pole show jumping he finished 4th. Jovi finished the season in the CIC*** at South of England where jumping yet another double clear and finished 12th. As well as 2* events Jovi has completed multiple Intermediate runs where he has placed within the top 12 in every one, his best placing being 3rd at Farley Hall in June.
Jovi as gone from strength to strength over the 2018 season, this included coming 6th in the OI at Belton at the beginning of the season. He competed his first run at advanced level at Chatsworth where he finished 13th, in preparation for his step up to 4* at Luhmhlen in June. We were all very pleased with Jovi at Luhmuhlen, he preformed and coped very well with the step up, his confidence also continued to grow throughout the week.
Jovi has come out in 2019 feeling more confident than ever. Running successfully in OI sections throughout the beginning of the season and going on to run in CCI4*-S events during the second half of the season with the final aim to complete his first CCI4*-L, alongside Vendome Biats.
This horse has great promise and ability, continuing to keep him more relaxed in the event atmosphere he is showing great potential to step up the levels in the coming seasons!
