Winterburn is proving himself a superb jumper

Life After Racing: Winterburn

Posted by MWE: 3.15 PM Friday 23 July 2021

Winterburn is a bit of a looker to say the least! By Fulbright, he is a big strong black gelding and was intended to run under rules. However, lacking the pace for racing his story really began when he was taken on by Maggie Sunter. Maggie lives in the Yorkshire Dales and this is where Winterburn would learn his new trade.

Maggie tells his story.

“The lovely Winterburn came to me in November 2020 since he’s been here we have been hacking him, doing groundwork, flat work and pole work. He has done some in hand showing and a camp and is proving to be an excellent and safe jumper, on his course of coloured jumps and he is also doing cross country. Winterburn also gets plenty of down time in the field. His work includes regular breaks as he still needs to grow and mature. I’m aiming to do a young horse class with him”.

“I’m really excited about Winterburn’s future”.

Winterburn retired in 2020
