Esther was asked to train Russian bred mare Pulcheria Knedo for 2 years to see if she had the potential for international endurance (like her mother ND’s Pirobelle). In exchange, Esther would get to breed a foal. Pul spent 2 years at Esther’s and managed her novice qualifications without any problems. After that she went back to her owner where she is still a broodmare.
Pul was bred to race stallion Murhib, an Amer son, and gave birth to Fionn in 2014, a big bold bay colt, born on the same day as her first horse Moreno. They even had similar markings, so that made him even more special for Esther. Fionn grew up in a big nature reserve and was gelded just before the move to the UK. As Esther had not much time to work with a young horse, he was started under saddle at a race yard and hopefully will do his first endurance rides in 2020.
