WINDSOR, England, May 15, 2014–Woodlander Farouche that Michael Eilberg rode to world young horse superstardom, was dominating in winning the invitational Advanced Medium Musical Freestyle at Royal Windsor Horse Show which has CDI3* dressage on the schedule this year.

The pair that was the first British combination ever to win the World Young Horse Championshps as a five-year-old then repeated a year later at age six, was awarded 84.05 per cent from the panel of three international judges.

The British-born chestnut mare (Fürst Heinrich x Dimaggio) owned by Alison Walton and Ferdi Eilberg, is now eight years old.

“Everybody expects her to do well and that does bring pressure,” Michael said. “But once I’m on and riding her, talent takes over and I forget. The feel she gave me in extended canter is unbelievable–she felt mega.”
