Steve, eventually known as Trusty as he grew to actually very safe and sensible, was a 15.2hh Thoroughbred ex-racehorse. Bought under the impression that he was 8 years old, Bronte soon found out that he was actually 5 and was rather good at fly bucking. He went on to have a successful eventing career up to BE100 with Bronte and became known as Trusty.
Another ex-racehorse, Caddy evented to 2* level with Kylie Roddy before turning his hoof to dressage with Bronte. He competed successfully to Elementary before retiring at the age of 16. He is currently living out his remaining years in the paddock at Bronte’s home in Harpenden with his companion Maisie.
Fritz took Bronte from elementary to PSG in a relatively short time, after she bought him from Beth Bainbridge in 2015. They did their first PSG together in 2016 and went to Spain to compete in the Classica (national) classes in 2017, where he won every day. As Bronte progressed up the levels, Fritz was loaned to Millie McBride as a schoolmaster. He is now living out his retirement in Devon at Monshall Retirement Livery.
