This is Canaan, at the time of the photo a 7-year-old PRE gelding who came over from León in Spain in summer 2008 - he is now twelve and we have progressed slowly but happily. He enjoys flying changes and is doing a little modest piaffe. He also enjoys hacking in the Pentland Hills near Edinburgh. He was bred by Alvaro Alvarez Redondo and found for me my Nacho Moreno Ronda who is also now based in León. He has a superb temperament and loves to work – it remains for me to find the balance and the feel! Pedro Neves in Portugal and the Epona Centre in Carmona, Spain, do their bit to help!

His trainer is mainly Patrick Print (with a little help from Pat Preston). All errors are mine and mine alone!
