Our Past Champions

Dragoo artsy Ben shot.PNG


Ben was Ema's best friend. He took Ema from preliminary to five-star; he also took her from high school through undergrad and through most of law school.


Bendigo was known for his picturesque form over a fence and he was the definition of a trier. Half-thoroughbred, half-saddlebred, he wasn't bred for the sport, but he sure found his way in it. The late Packy McGaughan matched Ema with Ben when she was just 14 years old. Little did he know that the quirky horse would take her all the way to Kentucky five-star.

Joker's Win

Joker had a long and successful career as a racehorse, and then took Ema around several Advanced and 4* events. He is an incredible cross country horse, and a galloping machine. He took 6 different riders through the preliminary level of eventing, which is nothing if not evidence of his generous and kind character.


Joker is now owned and ridden by Lucia Hanmer, a member of the Bronte Beach Syndicate. He has hit the jackpot, given that he has a virtually unlimited supply of carrots, trail rides, and fun lessons.
