PM Godington Orinoco - 2009
Purebred Bay Mare (Godington Hannibal x EH King Arthur)
PM Godington Orinoco (Godington Hannibal x PM Offerte - EH King Arthur).
A daughter of International Advanced event stallion Godington Hannibal and Premium Mare Offerte, a daughter of the GP dressage horse EH King Arthur TSF (Buddenbrock - Consul), Orinoco graded with Premium marks as a 3yo and became Reserve Champion of her grading. The following year, she passed her performance test with flying colours, confirming her Premium. She would therefore be a premier addition to any broodmare herd once she has finished competing.
Orinoco shows a flair for jumping that she has inherited from her father combined with her mother's magnificent and energetic movement. She is working well under saddle and is very sweet tempered with a willing nature, always being eager to please. She is easy to do in every way. Orinoco is a thoroughly nice young horse with real quality and strength in depth.
Orinoco started eventing in late spring 2015, with a BE90 placing on her second run and BE100 placings just weeks later. Some remarkable dressage scores took her to the Blenheim Event Dressage final in autumn 2015 and winter showjumping training has produced multiple double clears and a brilliant 3rd place at the Bury Farm Spring Festival. We really look forward to her eventing results in 2016.
