This successful event horse is owned by Mrs Sonya Batten and stands at 17hh. He is currently residing with Samantha Penn whom started Flight as a four-year-old, and has been riding and competing him ever since. This will be the 4th year for the combination whom have gained various wins and placing’s at BE100 and Novice levels. One particular achievement was coming 2nd at the 6-year-old CIC* at Aldon International in 2014. Although Flight is currently eventing at Novice and 1* level, Samantha is aiming to progress with him up to Intermediate this season. Sam also takes him showjumping, for which they are presently competing at Foxhunter level. Flight is not always the easiest character to get on-side, but he has the potential to go a very long way. Samantha says that “Flight is hugely talented and a fabulous mover, but always slightly worried about life. Flight has taken a long time to grow in to himself. I hope that over the next year or two he will really start to come in to his own”. [caption id="attachment_2131" align="alignright" width="343"]Samantha and Flight, show jumping at Hickstead.

Previously he would resent any leg aid, which would cause him to kick out or buck, which he no longer does. He is still a less than straightforward horse to ride, but he just finished 2nd in his first CIC*, with a lot more to give!” A FREE 2kg tub of Gastric Comfort is on its way to Flight for being our Horse Of The Week!
