Frasier and Kim had quite the season in 2015 winning the First Level Regional Championships, winning both FEI 5 year old classes and being overall FEI Young Horse Performance Champion at the Devon CDI, and placing 3rd at the USDF Finals at First Level. They had many scores in the 70's and 80's! 

Frasier has continued his training and has developed physically over the last 6 months. We gave him quite a bit of easy work over this time as his body was changing and he developed a lot of muscling. He is now working well at Third Level with changes and lateral work. He is such an incredible horse!

Frasier scored 73.1% at Second Level Test 3 at his first show for 2015.

Frasier is currently showing Prix St Georges and Intermediare 1 and is schooling all of the Grand Prix.
